From TheGamer: “Ive been a fan of the Phantom Thieves since their debut way back in 2017, so I was initially a bit concerned when I heard that Persona 5 Royal would be adding a new member to the team. To be honest, this same concern was amplified even further when I learned that Persona 5 Strikers would be doing the same. Sure, Royals new faces won me over in the end, but even more Phantom Thieves? P-Studio did well to pull off Kasumis introduction in Royal, but inducting yet another member into Jokers iconic crew sounded like a pretty huge undertaking.”
