Persona 5 Tactica Repaint Your Heart DLC Detailed


Atlus has released details on the Repaint Your Heart DLC for Persona 5 Tactica, alongside Nyahoo News Volume 6, similarly covering the DLC.

DLC Episode: Repaint Your Heart

Goro Akechi and Kasumi Yoshizawa will appear in the DLC, which will be released alongside the main story. Investigate the truth behind the painting of Arséne which has suddenly appeared in Tokyo, and the mystery of the elusive masked artist, Guernica.

Akechi and Kasumi wander into an underground world

Guernica is an elusive masked artist, creating giant pieces of artwork across the city in a single night. As their activities draw the world’s attention, mysterious graffiti appears all across Tokyo, including a picture of Arséne, something that nobody who was not a Persona user could be aware of.

After receiving a call from Kasumi Yoshizawa, Joker heads to the scene. Whilst discussing the mystery with Goro Akechi, who was also investigating, he hears a mysterious voice. “Take back my heart!”

Right after that, the picture on the wall begins to glow and the three are swallowed up into the picture. Opening their eyes they find themselves surrounded by thugs wielding paint guns in a dark ally filled with street art.

Guernica runs free in the other world known as “Street”

The three of them succeed in repelling the enemy with no difficulty, however they witness residents in costumes being attacked and fleeing.

The person attacking the residents was Guernica, the street artist popular in the real world.

Guernica works with Jerry, a parrot who can speak human language fluently.

The trio are surrounded by a large number of enemies, but just as they are in a pinch, a large hole suddenly appears at their feet and they manage to escape.

What appears before the bewildered trio is a girl wearing a costume and calling herself “Luca.”

Guernica (CV: Fairouz Ai)

A world famous masked artist. In the real world they have created many works to express the anger felt by those who are socially disadvantaged, however they lost their sanity and started attacking the residents of another world.


A girl wearing a mouse costume. She seems aware of the abnormalities occurring in the other world, and is struggling to stop Guernica from running amok. She is aware of the existence of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, and asks for help from Joker and his allies when they meet. What is her true identity?

Challenge yourself to thrilling battles rewriting all prior expectations

In the DLC battles with the Protagonist’s three man party, new rules will apply to go against prior expectations.

As in the main story, the basic combat flow involves targeting the opponent whilst hiding behind cover, however in addition to that, the new key to strategies is to paint. When you deal damage to an enemy, you can paint the surrounding area in the colour of your allies, and opponents standing on painted areas can be knocked down freely. If you are standing in a tile in the enemy team’s colour, you will be unable to attack, and be defenceless even when in cover.

Survive thrilling battles where the main rule of the main story “if you are in cover you are safe” no longer applies.

Post Clearing Benefits

After clearing both the main story and the DLC episodes, you will unlock challenge stages, where you will be able to play extremely difficult battles. In addition to strict clear conditions, there will be Max difficulty stages, where Personas, skills and party members are all pre-set.

Additionally, Akechi and Kasumi will be available to use as battle only units in the main story. There will be no changes to the scenario or talk events.
