Persona 5 Strikers is due to be released on Tuesday as the highly-anticipated title from Atlus comes to PlayStation 4 and 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
Already, the action-adventure game has made its way onto Steam’s top sellers list ahead of launch thanks to pre-purchases.
Persona 5 Strikers was seventeenth on Steam’s top sellers list at around 6:00 a.m. ET on Monday, surpassing popular titles such as Rust and Microsoft‘s most recent Flight Simulator.
A spin-off of Persona 5 that brings in characters from Dynasty Warriors, Strikers incorporates the stylish menus and flashy action sequences of previous installments.
Players will be able to visit six different cities across Japan as they join the Phantom Thieves in fighting against the Shadows.
There are 10 characters, including Joker, Haru, Mona, and Queen.
The game may be set in Japan, but fans are based all over the world. So, what time can players expect to jump in?
Persona 5 Strikers release time
The release time for Persona 5 Strikers depends on the platform. On Steam, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, the game should come out at midnight ET, February 23.
This should mean that players based in Western time zones will be able to get their hands on the gameplay a little bit earlier than that.
Things are less certain for the Nintendo Switch. According to Attack of the Fanboy, on that platform games may be released at midnight but this tends to only be the case for Nintendo’s own titles.Newsweek has contacted Nintendo for confirmation.
As Persona 5 Strikers is published by Sega and developed by Atlus, Nintendo Switch players may have to wait until midday ET on February 23rd instead, but this isn’t certain.
Of course, those who ordered the Digital Deluxe version got early access on February 19. The process can also be sped up by preloading it ahead of launch, so that it’s ready to go when the title drops at roughly midnight, depending on location.
In terms of file size, this will also differ between platforms. For the Switch and PlayStation platforms, Persona 5 Strikers requires around 12GB of space.
On Steam, the minimum system requirements indicate more than double this at 25 GB.
Persona 5 Strikers is another instalment in the line of Persona 5; the critically-acclaimed JRPG that was released back in 2016.
Other spin-offs include the rhythm game Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight, and Person a 5 Royal, an updated version of the original game which featured additional characters and plot elements.
