Atlus’s Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers is one step closer to releasing in the Western. After they mentioned planning a Western release back in April following the game’s success, Koei Tecmo confirmed the same in their recent financial report. The report notes a release for PS4 and Nintendo Switch in North America and Europe, though they didn’t list a release date.
Released earlier this year in Japan, Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers is developed by Omega Force, better known for the Dynasty Warriors series. Set six months after Persona 5, it sees the Phantom Thieves whisked away to a strange version of Tokyo and battling all kinds of fiends. Eventually, an AI named Sophia helps them out and the group reunites to tackle this new threat.
As more of a Musou-style title with real-time combat, Persona 5 Scramble still includes the ability to fuse Personas and form a party with four characters. Players will partake in side quests called Requests and use the B.A.N.D. system which provides a variety of bonuses. Stay tuned for more details on the game’s Western release in the coming months.
