Is Kasumi in Persona 5 Strikers?

There are plenty of characters from Persona 5 Royal that we would love to see make a return.

The question is, will we see any of them in Persona 5 Strikers?

In particular, will Kasumi be jumping into the fight in the newest title?

Here's what we know!

Is Kasumi in Persona 5 Strikers?

Unfortunately, if Kasumi is one of your favourite Persona characters, you won't see her in Strikers.

Persona 5 Strikers is actually a sequel to Persona 5 and not Persona 5 Royal.

This means technically Kasumi wouldn't have existed and so that's how she's treated in Strikers.

The main reason for this is because Strikers and Royal were in development at the same time.

The team weren't completely set on all of the Royal content so they decided to base the newest game around the original Persona 5.

Meaning you won't find any details mentioned in Strikers that are in Royal and aren't in the original Persona 5.

Don't lose hope though as DLCs are very common in Musou games.

So Kasumi could turn up in an expansion later on, possibly with some other Royal characters!
