Due to its nature as a sequel, spoilers for the original Persona 5 will be left unmarked. You Have Been Warned!
Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers is an Action RPG sequel to Persona 5, developed by Atlus and Koei Tecmo's Omega Force, and published by Atlus for the Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch. It is set to release in Japan on February 20, 2020, with a release date for international territories to be announced.
Set half a year after the end of Persona 5, the now-retired Phantom Thieves of Hearts' plans to enjoy their summer vacation together must be put on the backburner when strange incidents occur throughout Japan. Having regained the power of their Personas, they set out on a road trip across the country to figure out the cause behind these events.
Persona 5 Scramble contains the following tropes:
- Breaking the Fourth Wall: At the end of Joker's trailer, he faces the camera and pulls up the title card with his hand.
- Old Save Bonus: Having save data of the original game or Royal on the PS4 will give the original version of Last Surprise, as well as "Take Over". The same bonus will also be given on the Switch version with save data of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, where Joker is a Guest Fighter.
- Original Generation: As is common in many Warriors titles based on other franchises. Scramble introduces a mysterious new girl named Sophia as a playable character. She joins the Phantom Thieves under the codename "Sophie", and has her own Persona called Pithos.
