You never saw it coming. Or hey, maybe you did. Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers is headed to PlayStation 4 and Switch on February 20, 2020 in Japan.

Atlus just broke the news as well as the first official trailer, with plenty of new details to take in as well. Unfortunately, as is always the case, this is all exclusive to Japan for now until we get word on an official Western release date.

The action RPG will feature a brand new story that takes place after the events of Persona 5 – half a year, in fact. The Phantom Thieves get together for summer vacation but find themselves wrapped up in a "new incident" with additional mysteries popping up all over Japan. It looks like Palaces have made a return.

This time around, you'll get to play as all members of the Phantom Thieves, not just Joker, as you explore the cities, fight off Shadows, and summon your Personas.

The game will come in two editions: Standard and the Treasure Box. The Treasure Box will come with the following:

  • A copy of the game
  • Newly-illustrated special box
  • Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers art book (48 pages)
  • Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers original soundtrack (45 tracks)
  • Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers theme song "You Are Stronger" (lyrics by Lotus Juice, vocals by Lyn) making-of Blu-ray disc
  • Morgana towel (350mm x 900mm)
  • Persona Team original design sacoche

Now, all we have to do is wait for the English trailer and when we can get our hands on it. Hopefully that's not too far away.
