Unique Enemies & Stage Elements in Persona 5 Tactica
While playing through stages in Yoshiki Kingdom, Persona 5 Tactica players will come across a variety of unique enemies. These enemies include the Sumo-maton, Guarded Geisha, and the Slimy Shinobi. As the enemy names suggest, they’re inspired by Japanese culture. The Sumo-maton will toss allies around, the Guarded Geisha will block attacks, and the Slimy Shinobi will create clones to confuse Joker and the rest of the party.
Stages will feature unique interactive elements in Persona 5 Tactica. For example, surveillance cameras will call in enemies of the player steps into its line of sight. Elevators will also be available to move up and down stages with the press of a switch. Moreover, players may use Dash Squares to leap across the stage, and environmental hazards like explosive barrels can turn the tides of battle.
Charging Up and Sub-Personas
If a characters takes no action during a battle in Persona 5 Tactica, that character will begin to charge at the end of the player’s turn. In the next turn, the character will be powered up, allowing them to perform even more favorably. Each character has different charge effects, so its up to players to discover what they offer.
Each member of the Phantom Thieves may equip a Sub-Persona. This Sub-Persona will raise the character’s stats and allow them to use its unique and inherited skills. These Sub-Personas also have passive support skills that will automatically activate in battle.
Velvet Room Weapons and High Difficulty Levels
In the Velvet Room, players may fuse Personas and create new weapons. These unique weapons are the product of fusing two Personas. Weapons created from Persona fusion are stronger than those available at the shop.
While playing on high difficulty levels, enemy strength and HP will be increased. In addition, friendly-fire will be active, so the player’s attacks will now hit party members. The Retry function will be helpful when battles go completely wrong, too.
Finally, Persona 5 Tactica launches November 17 for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Windows and Steam.
