Does Persona 5 Strikers Spoil Persona 5?

If you find yourself being drawn to Persona 5 Strikers, you're not alone.

Though you may be wondering if playing the newest title could ruin the experience when playing older titles in the series.

Does Persona 5 Strikers Spoil Persona 5?

The answer depends mostly on what you view as spoiling.

Users have actually taken to Reddit to warn those interested in Strikers not to play the title until having played Persona 5.

This is due to the fact that Persona 5 Strikers revolves around the original Persona 5 cast and events.

It follows a similar plot with less content.

Many characters will be mentioned that aren't actually in the game and this can be confusing to players.

Overall the rule of thumb is to play a series through to make sure nothing is spoilt and you're completely up to date on the game's lore.

Although, if you're the type that doesn't pay much attention to dialogue and storyline then it won't be much of a concern.

Personally, I don't concentrate too heavily on what's actually happening and focus more on gameplay when playing a newer title before the others in the series.

I tend to forget the story anyway and am able to play the title's predecessor without it being spoilt.

So if you're a big fan of lore in games then yes Persona 5 Strikers will likely spoil Persona 5 for you.

Otherwise, if you don't think you'll remember the story like me, then get it a try!
