After 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 report, we finally have news!
Persona 5 Scramble, apparently titled Persona 5 Strikers for the west, will be released for the Switch, PS4, and PC on February 23, 2021.
The addition of a PC version (via Steam) is new, but it lines up with reports that Sega wanted to release more PC ports after the success of Persona 4 Golden on Steam.
Anyway, the trailer was taken down after fans discovered it, but you can find a copy of it in the announcement article from Gematsu.
It was most likely uploaded too early and will be officially announced soon, maybe at the Game Awards.
Persona 5 Strikers is a spin-off/sequel story that takes place after the events of Persona 5. It is a hack-and-slash action RPG developed by Koei Tecmo in the style of the Warriors games.
I’ve been looking forward to Persona 5 Strikers since I loved Persona 5. Now, I still haven’t played my copy of Persona 5 Royal, so I might do that first… although I’ve heard Strikers is a follow-up to the regular Persona 5, without acknowledging the characters/events that were added in Royal.
Either way, I’m excited we finally have confirmation of Persona 5 Strikers coming to the west! 2021 is shaping up to be a great year for JRPGs!---
