In an interview with Famitsu, Persona 3 Reload director Takuya Yamaguchi discussed the newly added Theurgy battle mechanic. He revealed that it is inspired by the Showtime mechanic from Persona 5 Royal. Further, Theurgy skills can’t miss, meaning they can be used as insurance to prevail in dire scenarios.

Yamaguchi: The SHOWTIME feature introduced in Persona 5 Royal was well-received, including in terms of presentation, so we wanted to add a new action like that to the game. Theurgy skills will always hit their mark when they are activated, so they can be used not only to kill bosses but also to kill rare Shadows reliably…
