Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers released in Japan earlier this year, bringing The Phantom Thieves to Nintendo Switch. Publisher Atlus never confirmed a Western release for the game, but it seems like it will finally release in North America and Europe next year.
Multiple Asian retailers like PS Enterprise and Qisahn started listing an English version of the game with a February 23 release date. As the Japanese version doesn’t have an English language option, it’s likely that Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers will indeed release in North America and Europe in February.
Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers may not the amazing role-playing game that the original Persona 5 is, but it’s still a very enjoyable experience that twists some of the series mechanics so that they can work properly in an action role-playing game context.
In case you never heard of Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers before, you can check it out in action by watching one of the final Japanese trailers here.
Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers is now available in Japan on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. A Western release has yet to be confirmed.
