Persona 5: How to Get and Max Out the Hermit Confidant (Futaba Sakura)

How to Get and Max Out the Hermit Confidant (Futaba Sakura) in Persona 5

Futaba Sakura is a one of the more useful Confidants in Persona 5 if you’re the type who tends to find yourself in tricky situations. She represents the Hermit Confidant and her abilities let her turn the tables in battle such as instantly starting a battle with a Hold Up, or swapping out dead party members with fresh ones to provide a sort of second wind in tough fights. You will gain Futaba, and her role as the Hermit Confidant, automatically as part of Persona 5’s story.
