AFK Arena is celebrating the New Year with a fresh update that will introduce two iconic characters from Persona 5 to the battlefield. Joker and Queen will be available on December 30.
Lilith Games just shared the happy news that two iconic stars from ATLUS Games' acclaimed Persona 5 game are joining the cast of AFK Arena.
Joker and Queen will be jumping into the world of Esperia with AFK Arena's New Year update, set to launch on December 30. The duo will also be on sale at the in-game store until February 27.
We're sure that Persona 5’s dungeon-crawling, turn-based combat will blend quite nicely with AFK Arena’s idle-RPG action in this latest crossover.
Both Joker and Queen look smashing in AFK's visuals while retaining their iconic style. The two characters will also bring some unique skills to the battlefield.
Joker will be able to summon the persona ARSENE to his side to unleash powerful attacks, such as the Maeigaon that deals an instant crushing blow to foes.
Queen will also be able to call on her own persona - JOHANNA, a powerful motorcycle that unleashes her devastating Stationary Drifter Ultimate attack. The ultimate attack creates a Nuclear Tornado that rains down multiple strikes on opponents.
The fans of Phantom Thieves will be thrilled to hear that the New Year update also features an exclusive themed PVE dungeon. Players must pick a Hero and dive into the maze of their heart to obtain the truths locked within.
Exploring the Metaverse using Joker and Queen to traverse the heart maze safely and battling enemies will earn players additional XP and rewards.
The two newest Heroes will join the idle RPG’s epic cast alongside other 2020 additions including Zaphrael and Lucretia , Ezio Auditore from Assassin’s Creed, Samurai Shodown’s Ukyo Tachibana and Overlord’s Ainz Ooal Gown and Albedo.
