A Western release for Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers has been confirmed, but no release date’s been set.
The news arrives thanks to Persona Central, who translated the information in Koei Tecmo’s first-quarter financial statement, revealing that the game has a planned release region of Europe and America.
This is the first time a Western release for the game has been acknowledged, following its Japanese launch on February 20th, 2020. The Phantom Strikers was revealed back in April of 2019, and it is a hack and slash Musou crossover, bringing Dynasty Warriors-style gameplay to the Persona franchise for the first time.
According to the financial report, the planned platforms for the game are PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. What all of this means is that we can expect a full official announcement of ATLUS’s plans for Persona 5 Scramble’s western release in the near future. While there is no approximate release date to speak of, those of you hoping for a Western release can rest assured knowing it’s on the way.
In other Persona news, ATLUS recently revealed that it doesn’t want fans to “give up on hope” for a Persona 5 Switch port. Earlier in the month, we also learned that the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo of Persona 5’s protagonist, Joker, will launch in October of this year.
