Persona 5 Tactica Release Date and What You Need to Know

We have a Persona 5 Tactica Release Date! And for good measure, we'll also tell you everything else we know about the upcoming Persona 5 spin-off.


To say that Persona 5 worked out well for Atlus and Sega would be an understatement. Persona 5 and its rerelease Persona 5 Royal Edition are hailed as some of the greatest RPGs of all time and rightfully so. It's the combination of extravagated visual swagger with diligently crafted characters that got people attached to its world.

After Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight, Persona 5 Strikers and PersonaQ 2. We've got yet another spin-off with the Phantom Thieves. This time in the style of a Tactical RPG akin to Tactics: Ogre, Fire Emblem, and even XCOM. We've prepared a little rundown of everything you need about Persona 5 Tactica.

What is Persona 5 Tactica Story?

Persona 5 Tactica is a Tactical RPG spin-off set in the later stages of Persona 5's story. After being transported into an unfamiliar world known as “The Kingdoms” the Phantom Thieves are attacked by a group calling themselves Legionnaires.

While trying to figure out their situation, they are rescued by the mysterious Erina who asks them to join her revolution.

That's pretty much all we know so far about the story so far. But since this is a Persona spin-off expect some character-related hijinks with the usual banter and a twist that will leave you depressed for at least a week or so.

Persona 5 Tactica Story

Persona 5 Tactica Gameplay

Gameplaywise, Persona 5 seems to take inspiration from classic Tactical RPGs such as Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy Tactics. But much of it also seems to take inspiration from the recent success of Ubisoft's Mario + Rabbits franchise.

Some of the staples such as grid-based movement and different levels of elevations. But mix in the usual Persona combat with elemental weaknesses, physical and Persona attacks as well as the various team-up mechanics and you get something truly unique.

The game will also feature the classic All Out Attack, this time called Triple Threat attack which's damage seems to be determined by different levels of elevation. The ability to fuse and combine different Persona's also makes a return, allowing players to create entirely new Personas.
