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.

Atlus has released a new trailer showcasing more cut-scenes from story and gameplay bits from P5 Scramble.

According to new reports, P5S takes place half a year after the events of original Persona 5 game and most possibly not P5 Royal, when Phantom Thieves go out on a summer vacation and discover themselves in a new situation.

All lead characters will be playable and players will be allowed to interact with fellow Phantom Thieves members. Gameplay mechanics would feature 2D platforming and some Musou elements similar to Dynasty Warriors series.

Players would engage waves of enemies in combat while also exploring their surrounding world for a series of missions. Also, bringing companion to a fight will let them use their own spiritual abilities for longer attack combos.

Atlus has developed Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers with Koei Tecmo and Omega Force for PS4 and Switch. Though initially recognized as an action RPG game, P5 Scramble actually belongs to hack and slash genre.

Persona 5: The Royal Introduces Kasumi Yoshizawa

Newest Phantom Thief member, Yoshizawa Kasumi is introduced in brand-new Persona 5: The Royal trailer.

To deliver an enhanced port version of their critically acclaimed role-playing game Persona 5 from 2016, developer/publisher Atlus has come up with upcoming Persona 5: The Royal and announced it for PlayStation 4 as an exclusive title.

Other than revealing little details about P5R, a mysterious female playable character is teased through an animated trailer. Today, a brand-new video introduces her as Yoshizawa Kasumi, new member of "Phantom Thieves".

In opening shot of the trailer, she walks in wearing her Phantom Thief costume and kicks off a rapier-like sword into her grab. In next scene, she is in her student outfit and goes to a batting cage for practice with no luck so far.

Throughout her day-time activities of visiting gift shops to see a friend or stopping at a café to have a meal, she seems to be a socially awkward misfit. Of course, none of that makes this red-haired girl any less likable and makes her the next best girl.

Then we get to see her in combat following her awakening, where she is joined by her Persona, Cendrillon. Seconds into battle, she launches her All-Out Attack move, which involves ribbon wand and is called "Beauty is Devotion".

Persona 5: The Royal is scheduled to release on October 31, 2019 for Japan and on 2020 in Western regions. Aside from newly added features, P5R would include another new character Takuto Maruki, new plot and support for PlayStation 4 Pro.

Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers Comes to PS4 and Switch

Atlus revealed action RPG spin-off game Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers for PS4 and Switch.

Remember when there was a rumor of Persona 5 to arrive on Nintendo Switch as P5S months after developer/publisher Atlus revealed Persona 5 R during The Game Awards 2018? We know now what that really was all along.

Right after official release date announcement for Persona 5: The Royal earlier, a brand-new trailer is released to confirm an upcoming title, Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers for players on PlayStation 4 and Switch.

We see protagonist Joker jumping from above into fighting a mob of shadows on street using knives and charismatic special moves to take down dozens of enemies before finally unleashing full power of his persona, Arsene.

Teaming up with Koei Tecmo and Omega Force, Atlus have attempted to re-imagine their popular role-playing game into a beat 'em up similar to Dynasty Warriors. P5S is akin to a spin-off like Persona 4 Golden that introduced a new character as well.

RELATED: Persona 5: The Royal Teaser

Although no launch dates are revealed so far, we would like to settle for fall 2019, according to a previous leak by Twitter user Mr. Ohya. He also stated that upcoming P5R would be only for PS4 consoles and it turned out right after all.

Despite calling Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers an action RPG within franchise, Atlus is keeping mainline Persona exclusive to PlayStation while leaving many Switch owners upset as they were really expecting a solid port of P5.

Persona 5: The Royal Teaser

Atlus released a new teaser trailer of their upcoming role-playing game Persona 5: The Royal for PS4 consoles.

Back in December 2018, role-playing game Persona 5 suddenly started getting traction with the inclusion of its character Joker to crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and a speculation of the title coming to Nintendo Switch ensues.

Fans then literally lose their minds upon noticing that developer/publisher Atlus have registered P5R.jp domain, knowing something is coming up. Recently, they come up with a new video revealing the title being Persona 5: The Royal.

A voice asks the woman that what she thinks of the secret group of "Phantom Thieves" and in response, she states that while helping people is good, these vigilantes are not actually helping people because their method doesn't work.

Immediately dismissive of the established protagonists, this mysterious woman sure is packing some surprises. However, at least we know now that for P5R is not going to be a simple re-release of original P5 for Nintendo or Sony console.

Atlus promised to deliver more information on Persona 5: The Royal at a two-day long Persona Super Live concert in Tokyo next month, on April 24. Ultimately, what they previously promised have turned out to be an announcement of another announcement.

Persona 5 S Rumored for Nintendo Switch

According to a recent rumor from Twitter, Atlus will be releasing Persona 5 S for Nintendo Switch and PS4 on fall 2019.

A number of rumors regarding Persona role-playing video game series start popping over the internet following the announcement of Joker from Persona 5 being included in crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at The Game Awards 2018.

Fans have been long speculating about P5 to arrive on Nintendo Switch at anytime this year and in one way or another, a newly surfaced rumor from a reliable source of leaked news confirms of a new Persona game for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

Joker of P5 is also confirmed to show up in Catherine: Full Body, a remastered version of acclaimed 2011 puzzle platformer. This was followed by a surprise reveal of Persona 5 R when developer/publisher Atlus registered a domain P5R.jp.

Going by the name Mr. Ohya, the source confirms of Persona 5 S for Switch on Twitter and fanning the flame of fan expectation.




Ahead of its official reveal, P5R was leaked by the same source and shortly before posting the Tweet above, the same account also states that Atlus is considering an HD remake of Persona 3, which was originally released on PlayStation 2.

Players are to get an official confirmation of some sort before May and a scheduled release date would likely to be set for this autumn. Even though Persona 5 R is deemed to be a similar version to Person 5 S, the former is meant to launch on PS4.

RELATED: Persona 5 R Revealed

Atlus has yet to confirm whether P5R is a spin-off title like Persona 4 Golden, which was a port for PlayStation Vita but it was an extended version of the PS2 title with a new character named Marie added to the story as well.

Players would have to wait a few more months until May to find out if their beloved RPG franchise is really stepping into the Nintendo next-gen handheld console and Persona 5 fans would have a blast if it really turns out to be true.
