Let’s catch up with Lady Ann in Persona 5 Scramble

Panther Power

Atlus has released the next trailer profiling the infamous Phantom Thieves for the upcoming Musou-style release Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. Following on from previous videos featuring Ryuji Sakamoto and Morgana, this week sees the turn of the happy-go-lucky Ann Takamaki.

As one of the first members of The Phantom Thieves, Ann is a popular character among the Persona 5 fanbase, with a cheerful demeanor and optimistic attitude that frequently pulls the team out of a rut whenever the chips are down. Beautiful and popular among her Shujin Academy peers, Ann is nevertheless racked with doubts about her future and frustrations with others’ perceptions of her.


While this new video doesn’t give us a whole lot to go on, we do see Lady Ann – back in action in her alter-ego “Panther” – taking down shadows in Mementos, and working in synergy with her persona, Carmen. Away from the fight, Ann can be seen hanging with her fellow Phantom Thieves at a festival, a diner, and chatting with mysterious new character, Sophia.

Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers launches in Japan on February 20 for PS4 and Nintendo Switch. No date has been announced for a (likely inevitable) western release.
