Persona 5 Strikers may not have those beloved Confidants from the original Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything you can do on the side.
While not as fulfilling as the Confidants system, Requests in Persona 5 Strikers are still a fun diversion from the main quest, even if some of them can be a bit long and convoluted.
Case in point, the Persona 5 Strikers meal tickets Request.
Persona 5 Strikers: How to Get Ryuji's Meal Tickets
This Request, called ‘Love Soupreme,’ has best boy Ryuji wanting to acquire two meal tickets so that he and his best friend Joker can partake in some delicious ramen. Sounds simple right? Unfortunately, the ramen shop that sells these tickets has run out, leaving Joker and Ryuji with very few options.
Of all the places you find the meal tickets, it’s in a pharmacy in the west of Sapparo. You can’t miss it, there’s a huge red sign. Speak with the man standing by the entrance and he will explain that he took all of the meat tickets so that the chef, who actually has arm problems, won’t have to work himself to death. The man then asks Joker and Ryuji to find materials, which leads to this Request-within-a-Request.
A new Request called 'The Apothecary’s Connection' opens. This requires players to go to the Saparro jail and kill 10 Mothman shadows as Sophia. Fans will be happy to know that these Mothman enemies are not hard to find so make sure Sophia is in a good level. Once you’ve killed 10 of the Mothmen, go back to the pharmacy.
While the man will take your materials and make something for the chef, he actually sold the tickets to the pharmacy, which Joker will have to buy for 800 yen each. That’s hardly expensive in this game but when you consider all of the hoops you jump through, it feels annoying.
Is it worth it? Well, you do get extra Bond points with Ryuji so that’s fine. We recommend you do it since there is some entertaining banter with Mr. For Real.
Persona 5 Strikers is now available on PS4, Nintendo Switch, and Steam via PC.
