Yoshiki Kingdom in Persona 5 Tactica Is Japanese-Themed

The third Nyahoo News video that Atlus released for Persona 5 Tactica gives some details about Yoshiki Kingdom. This is another region in the new Metaverse that the Phantom Thieves must deal with. Unlike the more Western Marie Kingdom, Yoshiki Kingdom has a heavy Japanese aesthetic.

Yoshiki, the ruler of Yoshiki Kingdom, is obsessed with love. However, he also keeps a close eye on everyone and forces anyone who breaks the rules to go to labor camps. He calls this “working for love.” Like with Marie Kingdom, the Yoshiki Kingdom story in Persona 5 Tactica is very similar to a lot of previous dungeons in past games. Despite his terrible crimes, Yoshiki physically resembles a Buddha statue, and he has several samurai-like Shadows that he uses to control his people. Yuki is a local who helps the Phantom Thieves to try and free her country from his dictatorship.

During the investigation, the Phantom Thieves will dress up in disguise. We can see them looking like samurai and geisha. This is part of their plan to infiltrate Yoshiki Kingdom’s Aizen Legion. However, when they’re inside, Yoshiki appears before them. He seems to have past with Toshiro, since that’s exactly who he’s looking for. You can watch the cutscene here:

Persona 5 Tactica is in development and it will come out on November 17, 2023 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC. In the same Nyahoo News video, Atlus confirmed that Akechi and Kasumi will be part of the Day One DLC, Repaint Your Heart.
