Persona 5 Tactica Director Naoya Maeda confirmed that friendly fire initially happened in Normal difficulty as well. While testing the game, the developers considered the mechanic too hard, and changed it so as to only appear on Hard and Merciless. Maeda also said that the Hard and Merciless difficulties could be considered similar to the infamous default difficulties of Atlus games of the past.

Additionally, leaker ryokutya2089 shared more information about Akechi and Kasumi in the Repaint Your Heart day one DLC. Akechi has a skill that will allow a character who has finished their turn to act again, while Kasumi will have an ability that grants her infinite movement range for one turn.

Kasumi’s special ability appeared in a recent Nyahoo! News video shared by Atlus. Additionally, Atlus originally revealed that friendly fire in AOE attacks would be a feature of higher difficulties in P5T in September 19, 2023.

Persona 5 Tactica will come out for the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam on November 17, 2023. The Repaint Your Heart DLC will be available on release, and will feature Goro Akechi and Kasumi Yoshizawa as playable characters.
