Most Persona fans knew that something was coming as the term “P5T” had been leaked for a while, but until Person 5 Tactica was officially announced, we did not know for sure what it was. Well, Persona 5 Tactica is the fifth game (if you count Royal as a separate thing) to have the Persona 5 branding and this time we have a tactics based game with a chibi art style that is very similar to the Persona Q games on the Nintendo 3DS.
Today we are looking at the different versions of Persona 5 Tactica that will be available so you and your fellow Phantom Thieves can make sure you steal the right one!
When Is It Out & What Is It On?
Persona 5 Tactica is going to be released on November 17th, 2023, and will be available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. It is worth noting that Xbox Game Pass subscribers will be able to play the game on day one with Game Pass!
Is There A Pre-Order Bonus?
There is a pre-order bonus for Persona 5 Tactica and it is a pretty cool one. If you pre-order the game you will get two DLC Personas to use, Orpheus Picaro and Izanagi Picaro. This is really cool as Orpheus Picaro is based on Orpheus from Persona 3 and Izanagi Picaro is based on Izanagi from Persona 4.
Persona 5 Tactica Standard Edition
The base version of the game is available digitally on all platforms and physically on everything except PC. You are looking at $60/£54,99 for this version of the game. With this, you just get the game and the pre-order content if you purchase before the 17th of November.
Persona 5 Tactica Launch Edition
The Persona 5 Tactica Launch Edition is a physical only version of the game so it is not available on PC. This is the standard version of the game, but you get two Persona themed coasters with it. You also get the two Personas DLC if you pre-order the game. The Persona 5 Tactica Launch Edition is an exclusive to GameStop and it is priced the same as the Standard Edition. Included with this version of the game are,
Persona 5 Tactica Standard Edition
Persona Coaster Morgana Themed
Persona Coaster Joker Themed
With how collectible Persona merch is, getting these two coasters makes getting this version over the Standard Edition a no brainer!
Persona 5 Tactica Digital Deluxe Edition
Thanks to the Digital in the name, it should come as no surprise that the Persona 5 Tactica Digital Deluxe Edition is digital only, this does mean that it is available on all platforms. With this, you get some awesome DLC in the form of the Repaint Your Heart Challenge Pack, Picaro Summoning Pack with Raoul Persona, and a Weapon Pack. This version of the game is priced at $79,99/$69,99 and includes the following items,
Persona 5 Standard Edition
Repaint Your Heart Challenge Pack
Picaro Summoning Pack + Raoul Persona
The extra stuff, especially the challenge pack is cool, but they could have thrown in a digital soundtrack and artbook here!
What Edition Of Persona 5 Tactica Should I Buy?
Many Persona fans are fans of physical media so we feel that the Persona 5 Tactica Launch Edition is the way to go if you want the game physically. Those two coasters are awesome collectible items and it costs the same price as the Persona 5 Tactica Standard Edition. Now the Persona 5 Tactica Digital Deluxe Edition is cool, but we feel like they could have thrown in a few more digital items to justify that price tag, most Digital Deluxe versions these days come with a digital artbook or soundtrack, sometimes even both!
Persona 5 Tactica looks like it will be a lot of fun and fun, and mystery and danger are always close by when The Phantom Thieves are around!
