Today Sega released a new video of Persona 5 Tactica, where Morgana himself teaches players the ins and outs of the game along with some useful tips.
This is also a great opportunity to get a detailed look at the unique gameplay of this tactics-based JRPG spin-off of the Persona franchise.
The first important tip is to be mindful of cover. Ending your movement in cover and attacking enemies in cover will give you a “one more” opportunity to attack again. However, be cautious as enemies will attempt to do the same to you.
Another way to trigger a “One more” is by attacking enemies in cover using melee attacks or Persona skills. This will break their cover and leave them vulnerable to further attacks.
If you surround downed enemies with all three party members, you can unleash a Triple Threat Attack that inflicts significant damage to all enemies within the enclosed area.
The fourth tip emphasizes utilizing the special effects of Persona skills, some of which complement each other well.
Speaking of skills, the video also showcases the Voltage Gauge and how it enables players to unleash each character’s Unique Skill.
You can watch the video below.

Update 10/2/2023: The second third of the video has been published, and we have added it as well.
Persona 5 Tactica will be available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC starting November 17, 2023. It will also have a day-one DLC called Repaint Your Heart Challenge Pack, featuring Crow and Violet.
