    While no official announcement was made, Koei Tecmo has published a new financial presentation that confirms Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers will finally head west. The game, which is developed by Koei Tecmo's Omega Force team, known for their work on Dynasty Warriors, released in Japan earlier this year in February. Koei Tecmo didn't offer a release window in their presentation, but they do plan to release it in North America and Europe for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.

    Yeah, this game is mainly selling to fans of the source material like Persona 4 Arena was.

    I still want a Persona Arena game that includes characters from all of the games, PS1 entries included!

    It looks like another Hyrule Warriors/FE Warriors

    It has parts in between the Musou action where you're exploring the city like in every Persona game after Eternal Punishment. Still, it's exactly as you described.

    If only ATLUS could remember a certain detective named Raidou Kuzunoha...

    Musou games are lazy trash games that get boring after 5 minutes (no disrespect to anyone who enjoys them)

    Its still has its P5 elements so it not 100% just hack/slash. Its has so much dialogue like the main P5 games its not worth trying the Japanese version

    I guess Atlus is not porting Persona 5 to Swtich any time soon, if ever.

    Congratulations, you now know how all Omega Force games look like.

    They tend to be very, very, similar, but with slight elements that try to reflect what series they're based on. e.g. the strategy bits in Fire Emblem Warriors, etc.

    Nah Joker in smash is pretty much a promotion to P5 Scramble or vice/versa

    There's also Persona Q2 on 3DS that was the Persona 5 characters.

    Yeah but the DLC characters in smash reflect on Switch titles. P5R could land on the switch, but I wouldn't hold your breath on that considering it took years for Atlus to decide to give us P4 Golden on PC plus we are getting SMT games next year

    They will never put mainline Persona games on Nintendo consoles because Shin Megami Tensei games on them

    Unless Sega pull a magic string and make Atlus port them

    This I agree with 100%, but to me unless Sony is paying them a boat load of money to keep mainline Persona exclusive it seems silly to not put it on Switch it would give them quite a bit of money.

    Cool. Should come to everything else though.
    Jim Ryan's Sony will eventually devolve the ps5 into a cod/fifa box like the xbox. I think its only a matter of time before we see more atlus games on the switch

    Hey, if they're dubbing Yakuza 7: Like A Dragon which features returning characters from previous games,
    including Kazuma Kiryu in more than one scene, which makes you wonder who they're gonna have dubbing him considering his OG voice actor wasn't exactly the best talent unlike who they got for Majima,
    I think they can dub for this game as well.

    That would make me very sad if true. But I don't think they're going to abandon games like God of War. I'm not sure about some of their other series they have though. Uncharted who knows, Last of Us who knows. At least they're making a new Horizon.

    Anyway I'm getting too far off topic since this is about a Switch game.
