Persona is one of the biggest anime-styled gaming franchises currently active right now. The multi-generational franchise is set to release its most recent entry, Persona 5 Strikers, which is nearing its worldwide release date. That’s great, but when will fans of the franchise get their hands on the most recent Persona spinoff? Just when is the Persona 5 Strikers worldwide release date?
What Is the Persona 5 Strikers Release Date?
The worldwide release date for Persona 5 Strikers on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC is set for February 23, 2021. This means the game will formally launch in North America just over a year after its Japanese release date. There is currently no information on if the game will make its way to the PlayStation 5.
A few of you more informed gamers might be thinking “didn’t this game release already?” and you would be correct, kind of. Persona 5 Strikers technically released all the way back in February of last year. Unfortunately, that launch was for Japan exclusively. That means series followers outside Japan have been waiting a year just to check out the new take on the Persona formula.
Strikers is quite the departure, too. The spinoff takes place six months after the events of the original game, following Joker and the rest of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts as they investigate a series of mysterious events involving people across Japan.
This game is the result of a collaboration between long time Persona franchise developer Atlus and Koei Temco, the creators of the Dynasty Warriors franchise. Signature to the Dynasty Warriors-style, the game will be a hack and slash role-playing game.
Strikers will feature elements from both franchises, such as the real-time action combat of Dynasty Warriors with the turn-based combat system of Persona. It should be interesting to see how these two drastically different styles mix together and how the developers accomplish this.
Persona 5 Strikers is just another in the long line up of recent Dynasty Warriors crossovers with other franchises. The most famous among these crossovers is Hyrule Warriors. That series actually recently released its sequel Hyrule Warrior: Age of Calamity, which we have a few cool guides for.
