Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers is setting its sights on an early 2020 release in Japan

I’ll just be here twiddling my thumbs until it’s released in the west

It’s been several months since Atlus first pulled back the curtain on Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. With its original codename of “Persona S,” many people assumed it to be a Switch port of the fifth entry in the popular RPG series. Instead, we all found out Atlus had teamed with Koei Tecmo studio Omega Force to give Persona 5 its own Musou style game. Now, we’re getting more information on the title and when the world will first be able to play it.

Atlus has confirmed Persona 5 Scramble will release in Japan on February 20, 2020, for Switch and PS4. Judging from the new trailer posted below, this doesn’t look like your average Warriors spin-off.

Normally I’m a “Just get it on Switch” guy now, but hot damn if the PS4 version doesn’t look absolutely wonderful. In addition to a release date, Atlus also announced a special edition of the game that includes the original soundtrack on two discs, a bag, a towel, and a Blu-Ray about the making of the theme song.

There is still no word on a western release date for the title. Hopefully, that changes soon because I could use a new Musou in my life.
