According to the unlisted YouTube video Persona 5 Striker the English version of Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers will release in the West on February 23rd, 2021. The game is developed in partnership between Atlus and Koei Tecmo.
The trailer shows fan favourites like Morgana and Ryuji. It summarizes the story of the game and shows off some slick footage of the combat, also glimpses to some of the bosses from strikers before the title cards are shown.
Persona 5 Strikers was launched in Japan earlier this year. It follows the Phantom Thieves after the conclusion of the original Persona 5. Regrouping for another adventure in the Summer following the plot of the original game, our heroes return for a cross-country adventure in Japan, featuring new allies and enemies alike. The game is launching on PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC on February 23, 2021. Atlus has yet to reveal if it has plans to release the game on PS5. The trailer notes that you’ll be able to pre-order the game via the official website.
It’s assumed that this trailer was meant to be shown during the upcoming The Game Awards next week on December 10, 2020, and was mistakenly uploaded too early. Recently at the PlayStation Partner awards, longtime Persona producer and director Kazuhisa Wada teased that there are some “exciting plans” in the works for Persona’s 25th anniversary next year in 2021. Bringing Persona 5 Strikers to the west is a great start to the celebrations
