Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers launches in Japan on February 20, 2020; New Gameplay Trailer
Atlus has announced that Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers will launch in Japan on February 20, 2020 for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. The official website has also been opened.
Persona 5 Scramble is an action RPG developed by Koei Tecmo's Omega-Force team, which has been known for Dynasty Warriors and Dragon Quest Heroes series among others. Just like in the original Persona 5, the player will have up to 4 active members in the team. You can also switch the player-controlled character during battles with the directional pad. The mysterious female character, which showed up in the teaser trailer, will also be playable, although her identity is still yet to be revealed.
P5S will have a brand-new story that takes place about half a year after Persona 5's ending. Just as the Phantom Thieves have their reunion during summer holidays, mysterious incidents will happen all around Japan. You will be also able to explore more spots in Japan's cities other than Tokyo, such as the area nearby Sendai Station.
Early purchases of P5S will come with a DLC set that contains normal battle themes from past Persona series. Those who miss the early purchase will be able to purchase these DLC which will be separated per each iteration at a later date.
- Revelations: Persona (PS1) - Normal Battle (Refined Version)
- Shin Megami Tensei: Persona (PSP) - A Lone Prayer
- Persona 2: Innocent Sin (PSP) - Normal Battle Theme
- Persona 2: Eternal Punishment (PSP) - Normal Battle Theme
- Persona 3 - Mass Destruction
- Persona 3 Portable - Wiping All Out
- Persona 4 - Reach Out To The Truth

The Japanese limited edition will contain an artbook, two CDs of P5S Original Soundtrack, a Blu-ray disc showing behind-the-scenes of making the theme song, a hand towel, and a sacoche bag.
