Akechi is definitely a fan favourite in the Persona series.
We all felt the pain after his death in Persona 5.
Royal left us questioning if we would see him again.
The question is, will he be in Persona 5 Strikers?
Is Akechi in Persona 5 Strikers?
Sadly, Akechi is not in Person 5 Strikers.
This is due to Strikers being the sequel to the original Persona 5 rather than Royal.
Meaning that Akechi died and won't be making an appearance.
In comparison, the Royal ending left hints that he may have survived.
Anything that happened in Persona 5 Royal that didn't in the original is pretty much non-existent in Strikers.
So, it sucks but yes Akechi won't be in the latest Persona title.
Though there's always potential he could be added in a DLC like Kasumi might do too.
Take the idea of Akechi coming to the game with a pinch of salt as it's unlikely.
If you're worried about playing Persona 5 Strikers in case it spoils anything from Persona 5, we've done some digging and can put your mind at ease here.
