New Game+ is a common feature in role-playing games - common enough to the point where it’s almost expected, and the Persona series is no stranger to the concept. That being the case, some gamers are certainly wondering if Persona 5 Tactica has a New Game+ mode and if so, what carries over and what doesn’t? This page will answer those questions along with related questions, like whether there are any missables in the game, and when is the point of no return?
- Are there any missables in Persona 5 Tactica?: There are no missables in Persona 5 Tactica until the point of no return.
- When is the point of no return?: The point of no return is when you leave the hideout to fight the final boss after Mission 50.
- Is there New Game+ in Persona 5 Tactica?: Yes. You will be asked to create a “Clear Data” file after completing the game. Loading this will start a New Game+ playthrough.
- What carries over in New Game+?: Money (yen), your Persona Compendium progress (all Persona must be resummoned), weapons obtained. You must complete Mission 4 in New Game+ to access items from the previous playthrough.
- What does not carry over in New Game+?: Award progress, mission progress, quest progress, earned GP, character unlock states, ultimate skills, and any skills/gameplay features.
Are There Any Missables in Persona 5 Tactica?
Everybody loves achievements and hates wasting time and effort progressing through a game only to find out they missed something along the way. In that regard, Persona 5 Tactica is a fairly generous game, as nothing is missable up until the point of no return. You can replay completed missions to earn Awards if you didn’t get them the first time through, you can listen to old conversations (you should be talking to your allies every time the prompt at Leblanc indicates a new conversation is available for the GP!), and Quests don’t expire. There aren’t any chests to loot on maps, either. The only things you can’t repeat are boss battles and quests, but there’s not really any reason to do so, either.
When is the Point of No Return in Persona 5 Tactica?
That said, after you complete Mission 50 you’ll be primed to fight the final boss, and once you embark on the final mission, there’s no going back… unless you very astutely just keep a hard save just before you leave to challenge the final boss. All previous content can be completed at this point.
How New Game+ Works in Persona 5 Tactica
To cut straight to the point, yes, there is New Game+ in Persona 5 Tactica. Once you complete the final main mission, you’ll be given the opportunity to create a “clear data” save, which, when loaded, will start a New Game+ playthrough. You will keep the following for your New Game+ playthrough:
- Money (yen)
- Persona Compendium progress (including unlockable fusions)
That’s… not a whole lot, really. You will be starting from the beginning of the game with your level reset, and any GP you earned on the previous playthrough will be lost. Characters will only have access to their basic skills, and you’ll have to relevel by playing through the game again. Any persona you had in your inventory or equipped will be removed, forcing you to resummon them, and you will not be able to replay missions completed in your previous playthrough until you complete them again in this playthrough. You won’t be able to equip any of your old weapons until you reach Leblanc following the competition of Mission 4 - The Mysterious Girl, while Persona summoning/fusion will remain locked until you complete Mission 8 - Signal the Counterattack. All characters (Erina, Ann, Futaba, Ryuji, Haru, Makoto Yusuke, Toshiro) will remain unavailable until they unlock again via main mission progression, as will all gameplay elements (Triple Threats, the Charge mechanic, Follow-Up Attacks, etc.). While the late-game persona and weapons will make your second playthrough easier, as far as we know there are no new difficulty modes, super bosses or stages unique to New Game+.
Below you’ll find a list of everything that doesn’t carry over in New Game+:
- Awards earned
- Mission progress, including replays
- Quest progress
- Phantom Thieves level
- GP earned
- Skills unlocked (including ultimate skills
- Gameplay features (Triple Threats, Charge, Follow-Up Attacks)
- Character unlock status
- Talk with allies progress
