Persona 5 Scramble UK and US release apparently confirmed by game publisher
Persona 5 is one of the most highly rated games of this console generation, and it’s revamped re-release on PS4 – Persona 5 Royal – is currently one of the best-rated games on Metacritic.
Capitalising on the success of the game, publisher Atlus has also released another title set in the same game world called Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers.
The release – which has so far only been launched in Japan – is a hack and slash role-playing spin off developed by Omega Force and P-Studio that arrived on both the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
If you’ve ever played a Dynasty Warriors game, you’ll feel at home with Scramble: it’s basically a mix of Koei Tecmo’s enduring action series and Persona. What’s not to love!
Yesterday, during Koei Tecmo’s financial report looking back at the first quarter of their 2021 fiscal year, the publisher appeared to confirm the game is getting a Western release.
A slide from the presentation suggests that Persona 5 Scramble is set to launch on the PS4 and Nintendo Switch in the West at some point (translated by Persona Central ).
T here’s no formal release date attached to the project, but it stands to reason that we’d expect it within the next year or so – why else would the game make an appearance on the 2021 fiscal report, right?
It’s nice to have the game formally recognised by the publisher, and we hope that means we’ll hear more about an official Western release soon, rather than later.
We’ll keep you updated as we hear more.
