Interview: Preparing Persona 5 Strikers and Maintaining Its Atmosphere



Quote
Sekiguchi: In order to realize the RPG aspect of Persona—things like progression elements, such as combining Personas, or battling using elemental strengths and weaknesses—we needed to move away from the conventional idea of Musou games.
These were the areas where we asked for Atlus’ know-how, and worked to create something that was more Persona-like.
As a result, I think we managed to arrive at the best solution for Persona 5’s core in an action RPG form.

Kanada: One of the things that sets Persona 5 Strikers apart from previous Persona games is that you leave Tokyo and travel around Japan.
Persona games are typically based in a single city, and looking at Atlus titles as a whole, it’s probably unusual for the setting to be outside of Tokyo.

Persona 5 takes place in a school, right? If so, then is it anything like playing that Rockstar game called Bully?

Well, it has exploring element but it's very limited, you can't punch random people on the street or school, so I guess no.
The battle is not happened in the school, it's happened in a other realm called the Metaverse.
They could jump from real world to metaverse and vice versa.

For the gameplay, Persona 5 (or Persona 5 Royal) is a turn based RPG,
while Persona 5 Strikers is an action RPG (like Final Fantasy VII Remake).
I prefer Persona 5 Strikers than Persona 5 (or Persona 5 Royal) because the battle is quicker.

Is Sumire / Kasumi in Persona 5 Strikers?



Quote
Unfortunately, like many characters, Sumire did not make the cut for Persona 5 Strikers.
At some point in the title, they reference the events of Persona 5 Royal's third semester.
It is then revealed that Sumire is absent due to attending the Internationals.

Persona 5 Strikers Was An Intense Collaboration,
Devs Break Down Creating The Action-RPG




Quote
Sekiguchi : We distanced ourselves from the conventional idea of musou action, and changed the direction of the game to increase the effects of fighting tactically and exploiting weaknesses.
Along with this, we made various quality-of-life improvements such as freezing time while selecting Persona skills and displaying the enemy's weak points.
Once we had this in place, we were able to refine the effects of "1 More" attacks, All-Out Attacks, and Baton Passes.

I always liked games that were more realistic. In this regard, it doesn't seem like Persona 5 would be my kind of game. Though, I did think the same thing about Skyrim when I first played it. I said "Oh no. I didn't want to use magic." I still continued playing it because of how addicted I was to the freedom of choosing my own character's story.

I said "Oh no. I didn't want to use magic." I still continued playing it because of how addicted I was to the freedom of choosing my own character's story.

I understand, taste differs.
As for me I like fantasy setting since reality game feels like a sim, not a game.
Persona series is kinda weird since it is both.
Half of the game is realistic, but half of the game is fantasy.
Sometimes we have to try the game first to know whether we like it or not.

I didn't like Persona 5 (or Persona 5 Royal, or any other Persona before) that much since it's a turn based RPG.
I grew up with turn based RPG (Phantasy Star I, II, III, IV, Lufia, Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest) so I have enough of them and wanted to try other genre now.
Since they said that the sequel (Persona 5 Strikers) would be a different genre, I give it a shot.

At first I think Persona 5 Strikers is just another musou game but thankfully I was wrong.
It's a mix between stealth, action, RPG, and also exploration (in real world, in different cities of Japan).
I never knew that stealth game could be this fun, I usually hate it.
And the stories and dialogues were good too. The music were excellent.

I don't think I need another new game from SEGA/Atlus this year.
This game alone already made me satisfied.
