Persona 5 Sequel ‘The Phantom Strikers’ Officially Revealed (VIDEO)
You’ll never see this comiiiiiiiiiiing! Sorry, I had to. With Persona 5 Royal just a week away from its Eastern release, the folks over at Atlus have announced that it is teaming up with the Omega Force team at Koei Tecmo to release an official Persona 5 sequel! Titled Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, the latest entry in what can now be considered a series of Persona 5 games revisits the Phantom Thieves after the events of the original game in an all new adventure. Check out the trailer for the Persona 5 sequel below:
Here’s the official description of the game courtesy of the official website, translated by Gematsu:
“Half-a-year after the ending of Persona 5, the Phantom Thieves of Hearts get together for summer vacation, but get wrapped up in a new incident. Mystery cases are occurring all over Japan. Palaces, the cognitive worlds of warped adults, have returned? Donning their disguises once again, the Phantom Thieves set out to resolve this new incident…”
As seen in the trailer, the sequel will feature some interesting changes to the original Persona 5 format thanks in part to the Omega Force team working on the project. New parts of Japan will also be explored, with Joker getting some quality beach time in along with plenty of running around in cities. Thankfully it looks like it’ll still retain its now iconic Persona 5 charm, with my boy Yusuke getting some quality time in with his favorite art subject, the lobster.
Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers launches in Japan on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on February 20, 2020. Persona 5 Royal launches in Japan for PlayStation 4 on October 31st, 2019.
