(Video: Assuming the available modes are borderless and fullscreen and windowed is irrelevant, there is no need to point them out in saying the game is pillarboxed. Documented the ultrawide solution)

Persona 5 Strikers, known in Japan as Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, is a hack and slash RPG developed by Omega Force and P-Studio, and published by Sega. It is a crossover between Atlus' Persona and Koei Tecmo's Dynasty Warriors series, incorporating elements of both series into its gameplay.[1] The game is a direct sequel to the console exclusive Persona 5, taking place six months afterward.

Persona 5 Strikers released worldwide on Steam on February 23, 2021, one year following the game's original release in Japan, with the Digital Deluxe Edition, containing additional downloadable content, releasing five days earlier. The worldwide release was officially announced in December 2020, following a delay in localization due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[2]

Reviews before the PC launch praised the game for being a port without any major issues and offering full control remapping for keyboard, mouse and controllers, however, some reviews were critical of the game assets not being designed for high resolution displays, its 60 FPS limit, and excessive loading times on solid-state drives.[3][4][5]

    "At least it's a good port, just one clearly anchored to its console origins. The biggest bummer is the 60 fps cap, especially for an animation-heavy action game. Textures that look fine on native console resolutions stand out at much higher resolutions on PC, and not always in the best way."
  4. Game Rant - Persona 5 Strikers Review - last accessed on 2021-02-22
    "One surprising issue with the game's performance pre-launch are the load times, even on a high speed SSD on PC. Granted this is an issue that can be remedied with updates/patches, but booting up the game and the loading times between entering/exiting Jails are surprisingly abysmal."

    Tested using Razer Surround to emulate 7.1 output and checked outputs using Special K. Side channels showed no output, meaning the game only supports 5.1 output.
