Which Difficulty Level Should You Pick in Persona 5 Tactica?

When starting Persona 5 Tactica for the first time, you’ll be allowed to choose the difficulty that you would like to play on. Here are all of the available difficulty options:

  • Safe
  • Easy
  • Medium
  • Hard

If you’re new to the genre, Safe is going to be your best bet. You’ll deal significant damage to your enemies while taking minimal damage yourself. If you’re hoping to enjoy the campaign and not worry too much about what is happening in the world around you, this is going to be for you.

Easy is going to ramp up the difficulty slightly, while still letting you have the upper hand. You’ll find that the Legionnaires can deal some extra damage, and their combat patterns will become slightly more advanced. Still easy to get into, but expect things to be a little more difficult for you.

Medium is where most players may find themselves landing if they’re a fan of the genre. There is still a bit of handholding that can let you swing the battle in your favor, but if you’re looking for a bit of a challenge to come with your fights, this is where you’ll want to land.

Hard, as the name states, is going to be just that. It’s going to be the most brutal difficulty, where you’ll find that you’ll need to employ every fiber of your brain to ensure that you’re not getting stomped by the lowest-level goons that the game can throw your way. It’s going to be a challenge, but a fun one at that.

At the end of the day, the choice is really up to you. Finding the best difficulty is important because a frustrating video game is just not so fun at the end of the day. Thankfully, you can switch your difficulty at any time, so you can experiment and find out which is going to be the perfect route between difficulty and enjoyment.
