It’s time to check in with the Phantom Thieves as Persona 5 Strikers is here for PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch. The musou-styled RPG takes place a few months after the original Persona 5, and puts the gang of teenage superheroes on the road as they investigate changes of heart happening across Japan.
While we do have a written review up, we also wanted to get together a group of Phantom Thieves to talk about the game. Including the ways it manages to capture the spirit of Persona 5 in an action setting, bring in new characters that stand proud next to old favorites, and still manages to fall into the same traps the series does when it comes to representation.
Fanbyte Managing Editor Steven Strom is joined by News Writer (and Strikers reviewer) Kenneth Shepard, as well as two lovely guests: Ash Parrish from Kotaku and Michael Higham from GameSpot.
Alongside the audio review, be sure to check out everyone’s written reviews, as well:
