Kim Rhodes Announces Role in Video Game ‘Persona 5 Strikers’


Kim Rhodes (Supernatural) recently announced on Twitter that she was one of the voice actors for the upcoming video game Persona 5 Strikers.

We don’t have an official character name for her role, but in her announcement tweet (below) she describes her character as “big, blue and hungry.” This is curious, as the official game summary reads:

Join the phantom thieves and strike back against the corruption overtaking cities across japan. A summer vacation with close friends takes a sudden turn as a distorted reality emerges; reveal the truth and redeem the hearts of those imprisoned at the center of the crisis!”

The game, which was developed by Omega Force and P-Studio and published by Atlus, will officially release in the United States on February 23 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Steam. The latest in a long series of Persona games, Persona 5 Stricker was a unique project for Rhodes, and one that she was able to complete even while in the isolation of 2020. For fans of hers, this is a different avenue than we typically see her in, but Rhodes’ excitement about it is obvious in her tweet. However, if you’re a Kim fan and gamer be sure to keep an ear out for her when you play.

LeeAnn is children's librarian who joined Nerds and Beyond in 2020 as a way to stretch her writing skills and connect with others who have the same pop culture passions as she does. She loves music, reading (obviously), and any TV show that can grab and hold her attention. Currently some of her favorite things to nerd out over include Supernatural, Prodigal Son, Louden Swain and Percy Jackson (books, theater, or upcoming show - lets leave the movies out of it).
