The first thing that you should know is that you can play the demo of Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. You will find the demo on Japan’s Nintendo Eshop, and it’s available for PS4 and Switch. We have tried the demo and came with an impression of the game. The conclusion that we have now is that we are talking about a sequel of the original game and not a spinoff.
Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers
In the demo, you will find out that the story is continuing the original game Persona 5. It is not hard to guess that because we will see the Phantom Thieves returning in full band. What is changed, however, is the fact that all the characters are now at a different age.
For example, Haru and Makoto are in college now, but some things remain the same as in the original story. What you can do now is spend some time with your friends, and explore the surroundings of Japan. The activities with your friends will be in new scenarios. Also, heads up, we have new characters. The sequel is adding the new Phantom Thief, also called Wolf, and Sophia.
More About Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers
We could talk about Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, not as an adaptation of the original game. However, you will discover an action game with many elements from the original title, especially in the battles. Some things remain the same, such as changing different personas, execute all the attacks, casting spells, or using your enemy’s weaknesses. Also, the game comes with new styles, palaces, and challenges.
Drawing to a close, Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers will first launch in Japan on February 20, 2020, and after a while in other countries. Plus, the game has new soundtracks in the battle theme, which are quite good.
