Persona 5 scrambles another release onto Nintendo Switch and PS4

Persona 5 scrambles another release onto Nintendo Switch and PS4

A keen gamer, photographer and podcaster, Tom is always looking for new anime and manga to explore; if you have any to suggest, give him a shout.


You wait for one bus, and then two come at once. So is the way of the world, and it applies equally to Persona 5. Yesterday, Atlus announced that Persona 5 The Royal Game would come to fans in late 2019/2020, but they’ve followed that up today with the equally exciting announcement of Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers (or 'Persona 5 S' for short).

Coming to Nintendo Switch and PS4, the game seems to ditch its roots in favour of a new Hack and Slash Action-RPG style. Comparisons to Dynasty Warriors are rife, and you can see why – the trailer is actually reminiscent of the ending of one particular P5 Palace, with Joker tearing his way into hordes of cop-themed enemies without remorse (well, he wasn’t quite doing that last time was he).

We don’t have a release date as of yet, but I get a feeling that it may be coming sooner than we think. The trailer is keen to highlight its introduction to Switch and, with rumours of a new Switch console being released as early as June, it could make a perfect warm-up act for Persona 5 The Royal Game. This is especially true if the trailer’s final scene links back to another new, red-haired Phantom Thief, but we’ll have to wait and see.

As with yesterday’s announcement, we’ll bring you more as it comes. Until then, enjoy to trailer below.
