Persona 5 Scramble Localization No Longer Mentioned In Latest Koei Tecmo Financials

Koei Tecmo released its latest financial reports recently, and they do not mention a Western release of the Dynasty Warriors-esque spinoff Persona 5 Scramble.


This is not looking cool, Joker. The beloved Persona series has received many spinoffs over the years, from fighting games to dance-offs, and many fans expressed excitement for the musou-style follow-up Persona 5 Scramble. However, there's a new wrinkle: Publisher Koei Tecmo released its new financial results recently, and a Western localization of Scramble isn't mentioned at all.

A previous financial report from Koei Tecmo mentioned a Persona 5 Scramble back in July. However, as spotted by Siliconera, that report has now been replaced with a revised version that removes any mention of such a release. This latest financial information indicates that the company is focusing on its other major musou spin-off, Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, which will receive a simultaneous worldwide release on November 20.

It's unclear if this means that Persona 5 Scramble's Western release will be delayed or outright cancelled. Considering the outsized popularity of Persona 5, it would seem hard to believe that the game won't make its way to North America and Europe, but stranger things have happened. (I guess you could say we never saw it coming.) Scramble may come out under the title Persona 5 Strikers in English-speaking territories, based on a Sega trademark filing. The game is expected to come to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
