While Persona 5 Strikers is technically a simpler, more streamlined game compared to the original Persona 5, it’s got no shortage of stuff to throw at you. You can’t travel across all of Japan’s major tourist destinations toppling extradimensional Monarchs in a single afternoon, after all. Think of the gas expenses! If you’re looking to plan an itinerary, though, you’re probably wondering how many Jails are in Persona 5 Strikers.
How Many Jails are in Persona 5 Strikers?
There are eight Jails located across many of Japan’s major metropolitan areas, each ruled by a Monarch stealing the Desires of the local populace and transforming them into their fervent admirers. These Jails are located in:
- For spoiler purposes, a place whose name you don’t need to know right now.
- Again, spoilers, though you may have difficulty finding this place on a map.
Unlike the Palaces of the Metaverse in the original Persona 5, these Jails don’t collapse after you’ve toppled their Monarch. Once you’ve made a little progress into the Sendai Jail, Sophia will chime in to inform you that you can warp back to any Jail you’ve previously visited from anywhere in the world (though you can’t warp to their real-world equivalents). Besides leveling up or grinding items, cash, or Personas, you’ll need to revisit previous Jails from time to time to complete certain requests. Every Jail also has at least one Dire Shadow, a hilariously overpowered enemy signified by blue static emanating from their bodies. You definitely will not be strong enough to fight them when you’re first going through, so you should come back later when you’re stronger.
It takes roughly 35 hours to clear Persona 5 Strikers’ main story, 47 hours if you go for the side content like requests, and 55 hours if you’re going for full completion. That’s about half as long as it took to beat Persona 5 on all three counts, but you’ll still have plenty of content to keep you playing for a good while.
