After all the rumours, curiosity and questions surrounding ‘Persona 5 S’, we finally have an answer as to what the thing actually is. The good news is that it is a Switch game after all, the other – different – news is that it is not a port of Persona 5.
The game’s full title is Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. Confirmed for Switch during a concert in Japan today, the game is a spin-off from the main series. Atlas has released the first trailer for the game, which you can check out below:
The Phantom Strikers is an action-RPG created alongside Koei Tecmo and Omega Force. Koei Tecmo’s Warriors-style gameplay can be seen throughout the footage posted above.
It’s been confirmed for release on both Switch and PS4, although no release date has been set just yet. We’ll make sure to keep an eye out for any more news as this one develops.
