Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers is a new action RPG title that's headed straight for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.
Initially teased as Persona 5 S and thought to be a Nintendo Switch exclusive, it joins the growing list of games in the Persona franchise for those who still appreciate a good role-playing video game.
The game was revealed after yet another title, Persona 5 The Royal, and brings a short list of its own niceties to the table. It is best described mainly as a new action RPG from Omega Force, the makers of Dynasty Warriors, and promises to spice up a well-known franchise with its own sort of additions and twists.
Persona 5 Scramble: A Musou Game
As Kotaku puts it, it's basically a musou game where a player can take certain characters, specifically those from Persona 5, and battle countless hordes of enemies while taking advantage of their respective special moves. There's no telling whether or not a port of the actual Persona 5 game will be coming to the Nintendo Switch at this point, but perhaps Scramble can help tide gamers over.
It said that this is the kind of game for those who enjoyed titles like the Hyrule Warriors, Fire Emblem Warriors, and of course, the aforementioned Dynasty Warriors. For some, it should make them feel right at home. While for others, it could be an entirely new gaming experience.
In any case, not much has really been revealed about this particular game at this point. Sure, there's a short trailer that was posted online via YouTube, and the official website gives a little bit more info, but that's about it.
General Release Date Info
As for when exactly the game is going to come out for the Nintendo Switch, that's unclear at this point. All that's known is that it is indeed coming to the wildly popular hybrid portable from Nintendo, and that it will make its way to the PlayStation 4 as well.
For reference, Persona 5 The Royal is set to come out first in Japan by October of this year, then in the United States by 2020. Scramble, meanwhile, is yet to get an official release date, in Japan or other regions.
