The revamped Confidant will also come equipped with a new ability for the player, such as diagnosing enemy weaknesses at the start of battle.
A new character named Jose will be introduced into the game. Jose acts as special shop feature which has players trading in collected flowers and stamp pads found in Mementos for special and unique items, as well as changing various details in Mementos itself, like increasing the earned experience point total or the amount of money rewarded after each battle. It was also revealed that a new mission type will be introduced that sees players successfully negotiating with targets using information obtained by the in-game Phansite.
