Atlus is going all out in promoting the brand new Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, and today the publisher revealed five commercials.
The short clips have been broadcasted today on various local TV channels in Japan.
This is quite appropriate because each commercial is dedicated to one of the Japanese cities that the Phantom Thieves will visit in the game.
Since the videos in the tweets are not embedding for some reason, below you can see an upload by YouTube user BuffMaister that includes all five commercials.
The first will likely prove familiar, as it’s mostly set in Shibuya, Tokyo.
The second commercial is set in Sapporo, the largest city of the northern island of Hokkaido.
Not surprisingly, Morgana wants to eat Genghis Khan, a kind of Mongolian barbecue that’s super-popular in Hokkaido.
Next is Sendai. Again, food is the focus with gyutan (beef tongue) which originated in this area. Yusuke is more interested in art, with the statue of the daimyo Date Masamune.
We move on to Osaka, and those of you who played Yakuza 0 or Yakuza 2/Kiwami 2 will likely see familiar places.
Last, but not least, we have Okinawa, and of course it’s all about white sand and blue sea.
If you want to see more, you can enjoy the trailer from earlier today and the first screenshots alongside story and gameplay details.
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.”
