Persona 5 Scramble English Version Appears on Game Retail Sites
Several Asian retail websites will be listing the English edition of Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, possibly hinting at a statement of this match finally heading west, and perhaps sooner than anticipated.
Some shop listings indicate that the English Edition of Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers will start at the end of February next year on the PS4 and Nintendo Shift.

The discovery comes weeks after a financial report by Koei Tecmo had no reference of Persona 5: Scramble about the organization’s list, resulting in some fans presuming an English variant had been in dire straights or not being worked at the moment. The music-style game originally released in Japan last February, with a State-side release still to come. Without the news of this English version being developed for quite some time, many fans felt that it wouldn’t happen.
The speculation was fueled by Atlus’s launch of Persona Q2 for the 3DS, which did not receive an English-voiced version as it was released in 2018, rather focusing on English subtitles for people who were looking to play with the latest adventure of this Phantom Thieves. If the listings prove to be accurate, fans will only need to wait a couple of months before hearing English voice actors Erika Harlacher, Max Mittelman, and Cassandra Morris, amongst others.
Fans excited to play the game have been patiently waiting for details on the launch, especially since Koei Tecmo declared and set a release date for Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity this season throughout that time. On the Nintendo Switch, Age of Calamity starts this Friday with testimonials out for the match, praising the gameplay but outlining some technical challenges the match now faces.
Meanwhile, Persona 5 Scramble could indeed be the past story-focused match based on the hit PS3/PS4 RPG, with speculation that Persona 6 is currently in development. While rumors of Persona 6 being announced that this year hasn’t come to fruition, the introduction of the PlayStation 5 is guaranteed to bring new ways to interact with a new cast in mini-games, specific events, and social links, particularly with the PS5’s new DualSense controller.
Though nothing has been officially verified, an English version is still a certain means to satiate fans who are happy to dive into more Persona games. In contrast, Atlus has recently ported Persona 4 Golden into PC. A new Persona game heading west is sure to help fill this emptiness, particularly on the go with the Nintendo Switch.
