Introducing the Plot and Setting of Persona 5 Tactica
・ A mysterious new realm
After wandering into a bizarre realm, the Phantom Thieves are attacked by a military group named Legionnaires. As they try to fight back, the tyrant Marie suddenly appears and brainwashes everyone but Joker and Morgana…
When all hope seems lost, the two are saved by Erina, the leader of the Rebel Corps. They discover that the world they’re in is known as the Kingdoms.
After fending off Marie’s pursuit, Erina takes Joker and Morgana to the Rebel Corps hideout. When they arrive there, the two are surprised to discover that it looks exactly like Leblanc.
What is this new realm? And why would Leblanc be here?
Save the rest of the Phantom Thieves from Marie’s mind control and uncover the mystery behind the Kingdoms!
・ The Tyrant Marie’s Goal is…a Wedding!?
Marie and her Legionnaires rule over her kingdom with an iron fist, exploiting the populace to further her ends. However, this tyrant’s lofty ambition is none other than an extravagant wedding!
After making a deal to help the Rebel Corps, Joker and Morgana head out to rescue the remaining Thieves. At the prison, however, they find a man named Toshiro Kasukabe.
Toshiro seems to have been a politician back in the real world, and he claims to have no memory of why he became trapped in this realm. Despite their misgivings, Joker and his allies decide to team up with him for the time being—only to later receive an urgent report that Marie has found her groom…
Ryuji Sakamoto (voiced by Mamoru Miyano)
Persona: Captain Kidd
A young man who was once tormented by a malicious PE teacher and falsely labeled as a delinquent.
After stumbling into the Metaverse with the protagonist, Ryuji awakened his latent Persona abilities. The two bonded as friends and formed the Phantom Thieves, an organization that stood against corrupt adults and their distorted desires.
Despite his short fuse, Ryuji has a good heart and fights tooth and nail for the sake of his friends and the oppressed.
Ann Takamaki (voiced by Nana Mizuki)
An attractive girl who is one-quarter American.
Ann has a hard time fitting in due to her conspicuous looks and spends most of her time in solitude. She sacrifices herself to protect her one-and-only friend.
Her time with the protagonist gives her the courage to take a stand against crooked adults. She eventually awakens her Persona abilities and becomes a member of the Phantom Thieves. Undaunted in the face of evil, Ann is never one to turn a blind eye to a person in need. She speaks English fluently due to her time living abroad, but elsewise, her grades are on par with Ryuji’s.
Toshinori Kasukabe (voiced by Tomoaki Maeno)
A young member of parliament who was rumored to become the next prime minister.
Toshinori is rescued by the Phantom Thieves after becoming trapped in the bizarre realm, and they agree to work together.
A consummate politician, Toshinori is persuasive and resourceful, capable of seeing the bigger picture. However, because he is absolutely terrified of fighting and getting hurt, he tends to prioritize safety above all else.
