It is always interesting to see how new musou games--, especially licensed ones--, handle bringing aspects of their main games in to put a spin on the familiar hack-and-slack mechanics. P5S is no exception. From gaining new spells to cast and leveling up, to keeping track of what element enemies are weak against and pulling off an all-out attack, there is tons here for fans of both Persona and musou games as a whole. One of the biggest changes is using the environment to escape danger, launch an attack by dropping large objects on enemies below, or executing a spinning kick on a light pole.
While there hasn’t been a confirmed release date in the west, Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers releases in Japan on February 20th, 2020 for the Nintendo Switch and Playstation 4.
