■ A New Underground World Called “The Streets” and the fearsome “Guernica”
Guernica is an elusive street artist who treats the whole city as her canvas. She creates massive works of art overnight before slipping away without a trace.
Her antics begin to catch the public’s attention as mysterious graffiti take over every face of the city. Among them is the figure of Arsène whose identity should only be known to Persona users…
A message from Kasumi Yoshizawa compels Joker to head to the scene. Upon arriving, he encounters Goro Akechi, who has been assigned to investigate the scene. They engage in dialogue about the cryptic murals, but their conversation is cut short by a faint whisper: “I need your power… to change the heart!”
The mural on the wall begins to glow, drawing the three of them into it. When they awaken, the trio find themselves in a dimly lit alley covered in street art and surrounded by thugs armed with paint guns.
After fending off their assailants, they are confronted with the sight of terrified costumed residents fleeing for their lives. The one behind the chaos is none other than Guernica, the notorious street artist who had been causing a commotion in the real world.
Guernica is accompanied by a parrot named Jerry who understands human speech. As Joker and the others are cornered by Guernica’s minions, a massive hole suddenly materializes beneath them, allowing them to escape to safety.
Luca—a young girl wearing a curious costume—appears before the puzzled trio.
■ DLC Character Profiles
Guernica (voiced by Ai Fairouz)
A world-renowned artist whose identity remains a mystery.
In the real world, Guernica was a voice for the underprivileged and the marginalized, creating works that channeled their anger. However, having lost her wits, she now unleashes her fury on the innocent populace.
A little girl wearing a mouse costume.
Luca seems to have a vague understanding of the anomalies plaguing the mysterious world and has been making her own stand against Guernica’s rampage.
She is also aware of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts and seeks help from Joker and his companions after a chance encounter. What could her true identity be…?
■ The DLC Introduces a New Mechanic That Will Add a Splash of Color to Combat!
A game-changing new mechanic will completely rewrite the rules of engagement in Persona 5 Tactica. Akechi, Kasumi, and Joker must still take cover behind obstacles to outwit and outmaneuver their enemies, but they will also need to harness one new, all-important tactic—paint!
Inflicting damage on enemies will coat the vicinity in your team’s color. If an opponent stands in the painted area, they won’t be able to guard and will be susceptible to being knocked down. But be careful because the same drawbacks apply to you as well! If you find yourself on a square with the opposition’s color, you won’t be able to attack and will be vulnerable even while undercover!
New thrilling battles where cover no longer guarantees your safety!
■ Enjoy Extra Features After Clearing the DLC!
Clearing both the main story and DLC will enable you to use Akechi and Kasumi as battle-exclusive units in the main story!
*This will have no impact on the story or on conversations.
