Zenkichi Hasegawa is one of the newer characters to join the cast of Persona 5 Strikers. This guide will show players how to unlock him. Persona 5 Strikers takes place a few months after the original game. Joker and Morgana have returned to Tokyo for a vacation with the rest of the Phantom Thieves. As they soon discover that Shadows are attacking people, they reform the group and work together to bring peace back to the city. All of the original Phantom Thieves make a return from Persona 5 with a few new characters joining the roster as playable characters. This guide will show players on to unlock Zenkichi Hasegawa.
Persona 5 Strikers takes the gameplay from Dynasty Warriors and combines it with the characters and the world of Persona 5. Although, the game only pulls from Persona 5, as Persona 5 Royal is considered non-canon in this entry. Characters like Maruki and Kasumi are completely absent, as they did not exist in the base game and only available in the Royal entry. Maybe they will be added DLC in the future but no plans have been made just yet. For now, here is how players can unlock one of its newest characters, Zenkichi Hasegawa.
Players will be able to unlock Zenkichi Hasegawa much later into the game. Zenkichi Hasegawa will be unlocked in the fifth dungeon of the game, the Kyoto Jail. This is fairly close to the conclusion of the game and rewards the player for their perseverance. Without getting into spoilers, the players will be able to unlock him midway through the dungeon. Zenkichi Hasegawa and Sophia are the only new playable characters in the game but they fit the mold of the rest of the Phantom Thieves, making them solid additions to the cast.
Persona 5 Strikers took well over a year to make their way to the west. Atlus has the tendency of taking forever when it comes to localizing their titles when compared to other developers. This is also the first-ever Persona 5 title to make its way to the Nintendo Switch. Hopefully, Atlus will release a Nintendo Switch port of the original Persona 5 to catch players up to the narrative. Some players might be a bit confused with the plot of Persona 5 Strikers without information from the previous game. It’s not completely off the table, as Atlus released a PC port of Persona 4 Golden in 2020. Only time will tell.
Persona 5 Strikers is available now on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
