In this weekly issue of Famitsu, Atlus has shared a new Persona 5 online feature called ‘Phantom Thief Alliance‘. The feature will mostly come in handy at battles and some daily life activities. You can check the full detail below, courtesy to Hachima with the translation via Siliconera.

Phantom Thief Alliance
A network element called “Phantom Thief Alliance” adds a new way of enjoyment. The player is free to choose whether they use network functions or not. This doesn’t change anything in the story.
If a comrade falls in battle, they can be taken hostage. If you refuse the demand of items or fail the negotiations, the ally gets KO’d, but you can use the Phantom Thief Alliance to get help from other players.
Caution Degree Meter
If discovered in a dungeon, the Caution Degree Meter rises, and security gets tighter. In the worst case scenario, you’ll no longer be able to continue with the exploration, but defeating enemies by catching them by surprise or going on another day lowers the caution meter.
At times, an enemy might find themselves in a pinch and run away, which also increases the Caution Degree Meter, but this can also be prevented using the Phantom Thief Alliance function.
Daily Lives Part
You can interact with co-op partners about your everyday life spent as a high school student or the work you put into part-time jobs. For example, when you’re not sure what to do, you can check out the action records of what other players did for reference. For the questions during classes, you can use a function to see the answer rate of other players if you need help.
