The Phantom Thieves are back in action!
Persona 5 Strikers finds the Phantom Thieves once again in the business of changing hearts, though this time around the combat is very different. Out is the traditional turn-based combat the series is known for, replaced with something that’s more hack and slash yet still very much tactical. Regardless, any Persona fan is surely going to want to jump into Persona 5 Strikers, though they might be wondering how long it takes to beat it.
While Persona 5 Strikers may not be a as long as a traditional Persona title, it’s still rather big. Those simply making their through the main story on normal difficulty will find that it will take them about 40 hours to complete it. There’s an easy difficulty for those who want to blast through it with less of a challenge a little bit quicker, however, and a hard difficulty that will undoubtedly add a few more hours to a player’s total time.
Most players probably won’t want to rush through Persona 5 Strikers though. They’ll want to complete many of the game’s side-quests, called Requests, in order to unlock new items and power up their characters. They’ll also want to develop the best Personas they can. This will no doubt add many more hours to their in-game clocks.
It’s those who want to see and do everything that Persona 5 Strikers has to offer, including getting all of its achievements or trophies, that are likely to get the most out of the game, however. They’ll have to complete a large number of requests, hunt down powerful Personas, and develop their characters to the max. Chances are they’ll spend 55 hours or more with the game before they’re done with it. They’ll have fun every step of the way though.
