    Persona 5 Scramble’s localization has been in a bit of limbo; beginning with a confirmation that Koei Tecmo was working on bringing the game west according to a financial briefing, and then being cut from the planned release list in a further quarterly report that happened later in the year. Now, a localization seems like a pretty sure thing, after a trailer went up and was immediately pulled on Atlus’ Youtube channel. Known in Japan as Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, the English version will be shortened to Persona 5 Strikers, and will be headed to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam for PC. According to the aforementioned trailer, the game will release on February 23, 2021. Though the trailer has been removed from public view, multiple backups of it exist.

    Can't wait. I hope it does well enough on PC that they bring P5 next.

    Ah, that's awesome. Looking forward to it. And yes, I also hope it does well. (Which it probably will because Persona. And it's the closest the PC will get to P5 for now. Offically that is.)

    So, is this spin off like a Hyrule Warriors game pretty much?

    Well Hyrule Warriors is a spin-off to the Warriors franchise by Koei Tecmo. Dynasty Warriors and Warriors Orochi. So Strikers is also a spin-off to their Warriors games. But in simple terms to your question, yes it is.

    Warriors is a franchise series by the Omega Force division at Koei Techmo.

    the Standard Warriors titles are Dynasty Warriors (9 mainline titles, based on romance of hte three kindoms period of china) and Samurai Warriors (4 mainline titles, based on the warring states period of japan) not counting spinoffs

    all other warrior games are spinoffs of the above formula(One piece, Arslan, Fist of hte North Star, Hyrule, Fire Emblem, Persona 5, Gundam, Dragon Quest, Berserk)

    Probably will get this on the Switch although I am lowkey hoping it plays smoothly on a GPD Win 3 without an eGPU.
