Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, the sequel spin-off to Persona 5 for the Switch and PS4, still hasn’t been officially announced for a western release, although it’s been out in Japan since February.

Localization has been quietly confirmed, however… through a financial report.

Koei Tecmo, who is developing the game, quietly included Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers for “the West” as part of the future titles of their latest financial presentation, as reported by Persona Central.

It’s been widely assumed that Persona 5 Scramble is being localized, but up until now it hadn’t been confirmed.

This sort of thing has happened in the past; the localized version of The Snack World or another Level-5 title showed up in a financial report before it was ever officially announced. Maybe this means we’ll get to see more from Persona 5 Scramble soon!

Meanwhile, I’m still debating about buying Persona 5 Royal…

Are you planning to pick up Persona 5 Scramble?

  2. I know, right? The impossible challenge.

  3. […] great excitement when Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers localization was included in a financial report, followed by concern when no official announcement came and it was absent from the next financial […]
