Persona 5 Strikers: How To Fix Game-Breaking Bugs on PC | Infinite Loading, Slow Loading & Full Screen Fixes

Persona 5 Strikers is an amazing sequel to the critically-acclaimed JRPG that’s surprisingly faithful to the source material. This is a Musuo game with random battles, stealth, and complicated JRPG mechanics! There’s still something here for Persona 5 fans to enjoy — but the PC port is a little shaky compared to the rock-solid console versions.

Some PC players are experiencing pretty bad bugs related to loading screens. Sometimes the loading screens are absurdly long — other times, you’re stuck in an infinite loading loop. Some players can’t even turn on the game without getting a black screen. All of these problems have solutions that should work for you. You don’t have to wait for a patch to come, there are ways to progress through these game-breaking bugs.
