Persona 5 Strikers is a direct sequel to the original version of Persona 5 and though it has those stylish visuals and funky music, many were disappointed when it was revealed that there would not be any romantic options. Since the story is a road trip around Japan, fans felt we should have at least gotten romantic options with the female characters in The Phantom Thieves.
Persona 5 Strikers: Who Should You Take on the Ferris Wheel?
The closest thing to a romantic option in Strikers is the Ferris wheel and it’s a bit nerve-wracking since you have to choose who will be joining Joker in this.
Fans can rest easy as the reward for bringing your ‘waifu’ or ‘bess boi’ is the same; Bond points. This will always be the reward you get, whether you choose Futaba, Haru, or the guys, you will get the same thing. Should you still take part in the Persona 5 Strikers Ferris wheel scene? Yes, because the dialogue in this game is great.
Some of these moments might be lost to those starting with this game but fans of Persona 5 will love spending time with Makoto, Anne, or both Yusuke and Ryuji. It’s clear that the writers of this game played the original game a lot since they managed to nail all of their characteristics to a tee, so don’t worry about choosing your best girl.
Plus, you get Bond points for Bond skills. They always help out in battle and having more of them is never anything to complain about.
No, it’s not as good as the romantic scenes in Persona 5 Royal, which even added a whole new bit near the end, but it’s a very cute moment that fans of this growing series will appreciate. If you want to see all these scenes and stick with your best girl, just check them out on YouTube. Alternatively, if you want to experience it for yourself, just save it before the Ferris wheel scene starts and load your game again when choosing the other characters.
Persona 5 Strikers is available now on PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
