Persona 5 Tactica is a tactical spin-off of the Persona series, specifically of its fifth installment. It once again stars Joker and the Phantom Thieves, though features a slightly different artstyle. It was developed by a Japanese studio Atlus.


Persona 5 Tactica is a separate story without much connection to the storyline of Persona 5. This time, the Phantom Thieves find themselves in a beautiful land ruled by tyrants. They quickly encounter hostile Legionnaires and are saved by a revolutionary, Erina, whose group opposes the world's rulers. Joker and his friends join forces with her to free the land from tyranny.


Although Persona 5 Tactica features the same cast and turn-based combat, the gameplay significantly differs from the main Persona series. Rather than a jRPG, it's a tactical strategy with sRPG elements, reminiscent of XCOM and Fire Emblem, though with battles being of a smaller scale. Players control a party of three, moving them across 3D maps, making use of the Thieves' abilities and the environment (including various types of cover used to sneak up on enemies).

The game also retains some mechanics from Persona 5, such as One More (an extra attack after knocking down an enemy) and All-Out Attacks, here called Triple Threats. These powerful team beatdowns can be executed by correctly positioning your party, surrounding the enemies in a triangle formation.

Technical aspects

Just like the gameplay, the visuals of Persona 5 Tactica draw from Persona 5, but differ in many aspects. Though the interface, soundtrack and voice acting didn't change much, the game now uses a chibi artstyle, distinguished by tiny characters with huge heads.
