Persona 5 Scramble Post-Game Features
Level and equipment carry over in subsequent playthroughs.
After clearing the game, your level, personas, and equipment will be retained when starting new game+.
Wolf will be playable in the beginning of the main story.
Wolf (Zenkichi Hasegawa) will already be unlocked at the start of new game+ after clearing the main story. This is different from Persona 5 where all characters must still be unlocked by progressing through the story even on subsequent playthroughs.
Risky Difficulty will be available.
The hardest difficulty setting called Risky is unlocked after clearing the game on Normal and Hard. This mode features extremely powerful enemies for players who seek a challenge.
The number of Incense acquired on Risky difficulty is increased. The item is used for increasing the parameters of your personas, allowing you to battle strong foes more competently.
Note that once you start new game+ on Risky difficulty, you will not be able to change it afterwards.
Unlocking the Takeover feature.
Another new feature is the chance to fight reapers. Reapers differ from regular shadows due to their lack of weaknesses.
The Takeover feature can be accessed by defeating the Reaper. To make him appear, you will need to clear all Strong Enemy Mission Requests and the Journey of Memories requests which are fairly similar to Persona 5’s mementos requests.
Clearing the game unlocks additional requests that you can clear to obtain new rewards, including powerful weapons and armor.
Requests such as “The Journey of Memories” will now pair you against enhanced variants of the Jail bosses with improved stats. Since the bosses are tough to beat, we recommend skipping them for another playthrough or two to help you grasp the combat system more thoroughly. If you manage to accomplish such feat, you can unlock even better weapons for your characters.
New Items in Sophia’s Shop
Sophia’s Shop will begin to sell various types of incense when you start new game+.
The strongest persona Lucifer can only be obtained through fusion after clearing the game.
