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.

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.
