Atlus has updated the Japanese official website for Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers with character pages for Yusuke Kitagawa, Makoto Niijima, Futaba Sakura, and Haru Okumura, as well as an “About P5S” page summarizing all previously detailed information.
Get the details below.
Yusuke Kitagawa (voiced by Tomokazu Sugita) – Trailer
A third-year high school student in Kosei High School’s art course who aspires to become an artist. His paintings are highly acclaimed. While his abilities were exploited by his teacher, he made the decision to leave upon meeting the protagonist and friends and learning the truth in another world. After awakening to his Persona, he becomes a member of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. While he has eye-catching good looks, he is overly passionate about art and often out of touch when he speaks, puzzling those around him. Since he puts all of his money into art supplies, he is naturally broke.
Determine your chance to counterattack and rain down on the enemy with a surge of slash attacks!
Code Name: Fox. He uses a katana in battle. With high attack power and nimble swordplay, he specializes in combo attacks. Additionally, he can unleash continuous attacks, as well as “counter” after sheathing his sword. If your counter is successful, your combo count will further increase. His gun attack, “Rifle,” can easily snipe enemies.
Goemon is his dedicated Persona. He possesses attack skills that specialize in the Ice and Physical attributes. Freeze the enemy, then follow up with a physical skill to deal major damage.
Makoto Niijima (voiced by Rina Sato) – Trailer
A college student studying law with the goal of becoming a police bureaucrat. Influenced by her strict older sister, she bound herself to being an honor student. While she was used by adults, she broke out of her shell, awakened to her Persona, and became a member of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. While her strict and serious personality from when she was president of the student council at Shujin Academy has somewhat softened, she is still the big sister-like presence of the Phantom Thieves. A martial artist who crushes enemies with her fists, even Ryuji fears her “fist punishment.”
Nuclear-covered fists. The end of century iron fist rider!
Code Name: Queen. She fights using her fist equipment in close-range combat. She specializes in a variety of attacks, such as summoning and riding her motorcycle-style Persona. She also can also “Burst,” which grants the Nuclear attribute to each attack, causing explosions and expanding her attack range. Her gun attack, “Revolver,” specializes in rapid-fire.
Johanna is her dedicated Persona. She specializes in Nuclear attribute skills, and also possesses recovery skills. Since the Nuclear attribute does major damage against Fire, Ice, and Electric, she is compatible with Joker as well as the other members of the Phantom Thieves.
Futaba Sakura (voiced by Aoi Yuuki)
A genius hacker who once shook the world. Due to selfish adults, she was given the impression that her mother’s death was her fault and lived a sheltered life confined to her room. She lacked interpersonal communication skills and feared going out in public, but regained her true memories when she awakened to her Persona. She supports the Phantom Thieves from the back, operating in a navigation role. After the incident of the first game was resolved, she seems to have more or less grown accustomed to people and is attending school.
From field guide to enemy analysis! The navigator of the Phantom Thieves!
Code Name: Navi. While she does not participate in battle, she navigates the Phantom Thieves through field and enemy analysis. She cooperates and provides a detailed analysis of enemy weaknesses, party member status ailments, and other conditions.
She can also hack the field to eliminate obstacles.
Her dedicated Persona is Necronomicon. It specializes in support-style skills. From buffing to HP and SP recovery, it backs up the team with a variety of logistical support.
Haru Okumura (voiced by Haruka Tomatsu) – Trailer
The daughter of the president of major food company Okumura Foods. Her father tried forcing her into an arranged marriage for company-related purposes, towards which she suppressed her feelings. When her Persona awakened, she gained the courage to cast her father’s spell aside. And while her father died in the midst of it, she overcame her grief and fought to the bitter end. These days, she is a college student and is involved in the administration of Okumura Foods. She is quiet and kind, and has a strong sense of justice, but can also be somewhat naive and foolish. She has even called herself the “Beauty Thief.”
Elegantly and boldly destroy Shadows in the blink of an eye!
Code Name: Noir. Unlike her lovely appearance might suggest, she wields an axe in battle. Coming from her standard attack, all of her special attacks are sustainable, from Psychokinesis to Gun and more. Her gun attack, “Launcher,” specializes in power and scope.
Her dedicated Persona is Milady. She specializes in Psychokinesis skills, and also possesses Gun skills. Her Psychokinesis skills can deal major damage to enemies with status ailments such as Fear, Rage, and Brainwash.
