Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers Release Date

In a new cinematic trailer, Atlus reveals release date of Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers for next year.

Shortly after revealing upcoming role-playing game Persona 5: The Royal back in March 2019, developer/publisher Atlus announced another P5 title Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

Previously speculated to have a fall 2019 launch window, P5S is going to release on February 20, 2020 only for Japan. It is very likely that Western audience will get their hands on it in following months that has yet to be revealed.
