Persona 5 Tactica (P5T) is the latest installment of Persona 5.

- Epic open-world action RPG with a great appeal!
- The world is well-crafted!
- Embark on an unknown adventure and solve the mystery of life’s extinction crisis!
The most notable feature is the “meticulously crafted worldview.
Even the items, settlements, and the different behaviors of each tribe have been meticulously calculated and created.
There are many games that create a world view from items and clothing,
But it is rare to find a game in which even the movements of the characters are created!
There are many different tribes in Horizon Forbidden West.
With different costumes and actions set for each tribe, gamers who love adventure will definitely want to give it a try.
The game is full of challenges, whether you want to adventure to clear the ending, stop by villages and towns to explore, or enjoy flashy action battles against powerful mechanical beasts.

The action game “LOST JUDGEMENT” main character “Takayuki Yagami” is a former lawyer detective.
While working as a bullying investigator at a high school in Yokohama, he receives a request from his former colleague “Saori Shirosaki,” a lawyer, to investigate a murder case.
The case, which seems to have started with a father’s revenge for the loss of his child, has evolved into a complex intertwining of interests of the police, prosecutors, and a semi-legal group.
What is the “decision” that Yagami is forced to make amidst the chaos?
- This action drama takes place in a cityscape modeled after Tokyo and Yokohama!
- The cast includes popular Japanese actor Takuya Kimura and other great actors!
- Suitable for gamers who pursue action + narrative!
