We learn that the game is basically a sequel of Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal.
About half a year after the ending of Persona 5, the Phantom Thieves reunite during summer vacation and will be involved in a new incident.
The distorted cognitive world of adults appears. Are the palaces returning? Wearing once again the masks of the Phantom Thieves they set out to solve a new case.
We get to see the mysterious new character revealed earlier today, but her identity is not revealed. More screenshots also showcase our hero in the Japanese city of Sendai.
In the game you can directly control not just the hero, but also the other Phantom Thieves excluding Navi (Futaba). You can switch characters according to the battle situation, fight, and run through the city full of shadows engaging in dynamic action that makes full use of Personas.
Of course, since Persona 5 Scramble is a Musou-style action JRPG, this isn’t too surprising.
You can enjoy the screenshots and art below.
Recently, we also saw a trailer that teased today’s reveal clued us into the fact that the Phantom Thieves will travel around Japan in the game, as opposed as the original Persona 5, which is set exclusively in Tokyo.
The game is coming for PS4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan on February 20, 2020, and it’s developed by the Musou masters at Koei Tecmo’s Omega Force.
Speaking of Persona 5, Atlus is also about to release an enhanced version named Persona 5 Royal in Japan, even if we don’t know when it’s coming west just yet besides a generic “Spring 2020.”
