Atlus gave a whole bunch of new information during their NicoNico Livestream broadcast. This time, they shared a whole bunch of new Persona 5 cooperation characters! The cooperation characters were first introduced in the E3 2016 event.
Cooperation (co-op) system ‘somewhat’ replaces the Social Link system from previous Persona series. The main benefit of this system is to give some beneficial abilities for the Phantom Thieves group, while deepening the bond between the protagonist and the co-op characters.
