On Saturday, Atlus hosted a public demo event in Tokyo, Japan where gamers could play the upcoming Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers for two hours. Results of a post-event survey are very encouraging: 100% of players responded positively.
The survey consisted of one question: “How was P5S?” Of those surveyed, 68% said, “It was very fun,” while 32% said, “It was fun.” The game did not receive any negative feedback during the survey. The number of people who answered the survey was not specified. Participants for the demo were selected through a lottery system and asked to share their thoughts on social media.
The plot of Persona 5 Scramble takes place some time after Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal. The main group of characters went on summer vacation before the beginning of the new school year. However, they will have to face supernatural enemies in a mysterious version of Tokyo. Two new characters, a lot of new locations, and even new hack’n’slash gameplay elements — it sounds like the best way to make the highly successful 2016 jRPG even better.
Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers will be released in Japan on February 20, 2020 via PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. A U.S. release date has not been announced. However, the enhanced version of Persona 5, Persona 5 Royal, is coming to the U.S. on March 31, 2020 for PS4.
