Word about Koei Tecmo localising Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers has been floating around all year, but a new update in the company’s latest financial report makes no mention of a western release.
In terms of console offerings, it’s now focused on Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity and a bunch of other games including Atelier Ryza 2, Dynasty Warriors 9: Empires, Romance of the Three Kingdoms XIV – Diplomacy and Strategy Expansion Pack and Nioh 2 DLC. All of these games will arrive before the end of the March 2021.
While this might seem like an alarming development, as noted by Siliconera, Sega previously filed a trademark for Persona 5 Strikers back in December 2019 – which is expected to be the game’s title here in the west.
Obviously it’s been a disruptive year and there’s also a new console generation on the horizon, so perhaps we’ll just have to wait a little longer. Would you show your support for Persona 5 Scramble if it was released in the west? Comment below.
