Persona 5 Strikers gameplay round-up

Another round of gameplay has been released for Persona 5 Strikers. If the new trailer earlier today wasn't enough, perhaps the videos above and below will do the trick!


Persona 5 Strikers will not see a demo release in the West

Striking out

Persona 5 Strikers saw a pretty sizable demo release in Japan prior to the game's launch, giving fans a chance to check out the action early. Unfortunately, that's not going to be the case for the Western version of the game. While no reason was given, Atlus did confirm that there are no plans for a demo outside of Japan.

Atlus also shared some details on the localized voice work for the game. Players will be able to choose between English and Japanese voice work, and all of the voice acting for localized versions was handled remotely. The pandemic had many people staying at home, yet Atlus found a way to get the game's lines recorded while having everyone remain socially distant.

Atlus survey asks fans if they're interested in a Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Breakers localization

Scrambling to make a purchase?

Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers has been available in Japan for a good amount of time, but we haven't heard a peep about a localization. While we're still waiting for official word, we do have our first glimmer of hope.

Atlus sent out a survey to Persona 5 Royal players to see what they thought of the game, but also to ask some questions about the series in general. One question in particular asks about interest in buying Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers if it were released in the West. I'm guessing the plans are already underway, but Atlus isn't ready to fully unveil things yet.
