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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Persona 5 R Revealed

Developer Atlus reveals Persona 5 R as their next project for 2019 but says nothing about a Nintendo Switch version.

At The Game Awards 2018, immediately after the announcement of the Joker of role-playing game Persona 5 being added to crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, fans coming theorizing that the game may see a Nintendo Switch version release.

Then developer/publisher Atlus proceeded registrations for P5R.jp domain to fan the flame until Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai took a trip to their HQ. Right before stepping into 2019, they teased for a new project in works.

Yup, that's it. Nothing much but a date for next year following the PlayStation logo over its iconic blue screen and then comes the line "Take Your Heart" a on a red background with a voiceover before revealing the date to be just March 2019.

Aside from clearly hinting that they are working on something, the developers didn't say much for now and chose to keep everyone in the dark. The trailer also confirmed that the domain that was registered earlier is activated and belong to this new project now.

However, the meaning behind that "R" still remains a mystery to all and we cannot help but wonder it is a nod to "Remake" or "Remaster" for Nintendo Switch maybe? We don't know that for certain but our bet is fans of the handheld console would wish it was.

Then again, why would a port for Switch would then show up with a PlayStation logo in the first place? Since the original Persona 5 was released on both PS3 and PS4, a release on the Sony console shouldn't be much surprising at all. We all have to wait until March 2019 is here.

Persona 5 Free Swimsuit DLC

For those who love dressing up Barbies, you can now do this at the same time playing a role-playing social simulation game. Part of its pieces of DLC available for Persona 5, developer studio Atlus has rolled out a "Swimsuit DLC" as a bonus for the players that can be downloaded free of charge. Yes, you saw that right, free of charge.

Persona 5 Swimsuit DLC

This DLC allows you dress some of the characters and lets you travel with them as your team in revealing sexy summer outfits and exploring places. There are also a number of outfits you can choose, like the school uniform or regular outfits. I guess you will be looking forward to dressing your favourite characters in a Catherine kind of way ad we are sorry to inform you that, that specific outfit is yet to be rolled out. Guess they are keeping the best for later.

However, Persona 5‘s free swimsuit costume can only be enjoyed in both North America and Europe regions, because that is where it can be downloaded. So, it is quite sad for the fans from other regions. Persona 5‘s free swimsuit costumes aren’t the only thing that comes with the update. It also features a lot of paid DLC that includes stuffs inspired by Shin Megami Tensei IV and Persona 4 spin-offs.

This is a game you will really enjoy even if you haven't played all of its previous installments. From dressing up characters in a sexy revealing outfit, to school uniform and regular outfit to wandering off the street of Tokyo and other interesting stuff you cannot wait to get when you play the game. Keep your fingers crossed. Persona 5 has been released worldwide on April 4, 2017 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
