Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers Receives 20 February Japanese Release Date 1

While much attention in recent months has gone to the upcoming Japanese and Western releases of Persona 5 Royal on the PlayStation 4, an enhanced remake of the 2016 RPG, video game publisher ATLUS have shared a new look at Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers and a Japanese release date. Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers is a co-development between ATLUS and Koei Tecmo, and is due to have gameplay reminiscent of the Omega Force studio’s Warriors games, rather than the turn-based RPG mechanics of the main instalments.

ATLUS has recently confirmed that Persona 5 Scramble will be available on the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan from 20 February 2020. A western release date has not been confirmed at this time, but will likely have a 2020/2021 release window given previous spin-off Persona releases.

In new information revealed about the game’s story, it will be set approximately half a year after the conclusion of Persona 5. The Phantom Thieves reunite for Summer vacation, however soon begin encountering new Palaces – requiring the use of their powers once again. It has also been confirmed that a new character (pictured below) will be joining the cast in some capacity.

Pre-order and Limited Edition bonuses for Persona 5 Scramble have been confirmed. Those who pre-order the game in Japan (while stocks permit) are eligible to receive a complementary Persona Series Battle BGM Set which grants additional battle music from each previous numbered instalment in the Persona series:

  • Persona 1 – Standard Battle
  • Persona Portable – A Lone Prayer
  • Persona 2: Innocent Sin – Standard Battle
  • Persona 2: Eternal Punishment – Standard Battle
  • Persona 3 – Mass Destruction
  • Persona 3 Portable – Wiping All Out
  • Persona 4 – Reach Out to the Truth
  • Persona 4 Golden – Time to Make History

These songs will be available for purchase at a later date as part of four DLC song sets – “Persona 1 Sound Set”, “Persona 2 Sound Set”, “Persona 3 Sound Set” and “Persona 4 Sound Set”, each of which will be purchasable for 300 yen.
