Persona 5 Strikers

Have you played Persona 5 Strikers or Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection on your Switch? If so, you’re eligible to receive new spirits in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Those that have save data for Persona 5 Strikers will receive a spirit for Sophia. For Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection, Arthur is the bonus.

Both of these spirits may appear for all players at a later date, though there’s no word on that just yet.

Developer: Koei Tecmo / Omega Force
Publisher: Atlus


Less than a month after the Switch launched in March 2017, Atlus and P-Studio released the critically acclaimed RPG Persona 5 on PlayStation platforms – and since then, fans of the franchise have been begging the powers that be for a Switch release of the high school simulator/interdimensional dungeon-crawler. That has yet to happen, but the launch of Persona 5 Strikers is perhaps the next best thing – a sequel that shares the iconic characters and sense of style of Persona 5, but featuring an entirely new story and style of gameplay that’s even faster and flashier than the original game. Strikers is an excellent action game with an engaging narrative that is sure to captivate any fan of the franchise – but newcomers to Persona may have a hard time jumping in without playing the original.

Atlus has readied a new trailer to celebrate the release of Persona 5 Strikers. Have a look at today’s video below.

Persona 5 Strikers is finally heading west in February. For awhile, there was some uncertainty regarding if and when the game would be localized. It seems that the coronavirus pandemic is partly to blame for the long wait for an announcement.

Erika Harlacher and Cassandra Lee Morris, the voice actors for Ann and Morgana respectively, shared a bit of behind the scenes information during a recent discussion video. It turns out that English voice recording kicked off around April of last year. When the pandemic hit and quarantine went into effect, everything was put on hold.
