AFK Arena X Persona 5 crossover: How will JOKER & QUEEN be in-game?
PERSONA5’s dungeon-crawling, turn-based combat blends perfectly with AFK Arena’s idle-RPG action in this latest AFK Arena X Persona 5 crossover. Both JOKER and QUEEN look stunning in AFK’s striking visuals, while still retaining their instantly recognisable and iconic style. Both characters bring a unique set of skills to the battlefield. JOKER can summon the persona ARSENE to his side to unleash powerful attacks, such as the devastating Maeigaon that deals an instant crushing blow to foes. QUEEN can also call upon her persona JOHANNA, a powerful motorcycle that unleashes her devastating Stationary Drifter Ultimate attack, this creates a Nuclear Tornado that rains down multiple strikes on opponents.
For fans of the Phantom Thieves, 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 and battling enemies earns players XP and incredible rewards using JOKER and QUEEN to traverse the maze safely.
