The Phantom Thieves return in Persona 5 Tactica, another fast-paced and stylish outing with Joker and all his friends (except for the ones relegated to the DLC). This time they’ve been sucked into a mysterious part of the Metaverse known as the Kingdoms, and must fight their way through to depose each of the corrupt rulers.
The game may feature new gameplay, but most of the Persona 5 staples such as ranged and melee attacks, Persona fusion, and building your party members make a comeback, so long-time fans can pick it up very quickly. Want to know how long it’ll take to beat? We’ll tell you what you need to know.
How Long Does It Take To Beat?
Unlike most other Persona games, this one is very short, consisting of 52 Missions across four ‘Kingdoms.’ If you just want to breeze through the main story, you can get it done in just over 16 hours, according to HowLongToBeat.
How Long Does It Take To 100 Percent?
Completing this game and all its achievements will take much longer, as you have to do things such as: completing all the Talk scenes, completing all the Quests, completing the Compendium, and reaching level 99.
Most of the trophies are easily obtained on a normal playthrough, but grinding up to level 99 will be a time sink, as the average level for the final boss fight is around the late 60s, early 70s.
On the bright side, by the time you’ve done that, you will have almost certainly done everything else so long as you are fusing high-level Personas along the way to keep up with the compendium.
All in all, 100 percent completion of this game would take another 10 to 20 hours, assuming you’ve been working towards it along the way, for 25 to 40 hours total, much lower than what’s traditional for a Persona Game.
How Many Kingdoms Are There?
There are four Kingdoms in the game total, three unique ones and then the final one, which takes elements from all three and sees you refighting major bosses.
How Long Does It Take To Beat The DLC?
The DLC story, Repaint Your Heart, follows Joker along with Goro Akechi and Sumire Yoshizawa during the events of the original Persona 5 through a new story.
It only takes 3 hours to complete, according to HowLongToBeat.
