Persona 5 Strikers (23/2/21)

Recommended Posts

Persona 5S was revealed by Atlus today to be Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikes. More like a Warriors-game than Persona. Reveal trailer (in Japanese):

 

What a joke.

Another Warriors game for me to ignore, great. This is not what I wanted. :p

But it's probably going to be a hit anyway.

You never saw it coming!

How do you squander Smash interest on a spin-off?

Now up on the front page...

It might not have been the Persona 5 we were asking for but it's the one we're getting damnit and we'll like it! (apparently) :p

I still think the base version of Persona 5 will make it onto Switch though for what it's worth.

Thanks to @MindFreak for the heads-up on this one, I've put a credit at the bottom of the article. :smile:

Yeah, I mean what's the point of releasing an incredibly spin-off game of Persona 5 if the main game isn't going to come over to the system as well? It might be a pleasant surprise for those who have a PS4+Switch combo, but it will have zero appeal for any "Switch only"-gamers. 

It'd be the same as if they'd release a GTA V muso warriors game, telling us that there are so many PC+Switch players that this is something everyone wants to play :p

Uhhhh... I have a little interest in this. More interest in the actual Persona 5 game. I'd rather play this Persona Warriors.

If the playable characters play uniquely, and aren't mostly clones like in Fire Emblem Warriors, I might wanna buy it.

This releases on February 20th in Japan - a new trailer confirms this:

Also, an informational live stream about the game is being held on November 4th.

Much like Age of Calamity, I'm intrigued because of the Warriors style of gameplay, not necessarily the Persona 5 aspect.

Still keeping an eye on it.

With a name like Persona 5 Strikers this should be a Mario Strikers crossover instead of a Warriors game. :p

 

I think Greg/Nando said something along those lines on a recent episode of the podcast. He REALLY wants another Mario Strikers game. :D

Maybe they are working on a Mario Warriors game instead. :laughing:

I’ll be grabbing it once I’ve finished P5R

I'm interested, but I'm gonna wait for some impressions first.

Unlike Hyrule Warriors, I know basically nothing about Persona 5 outside anything that's in Smash Ultimate, so it's gotta be solid.

Not yet. Like Happenstance, I wanna play P5R first. Seeing as this is a direct continuation of that story, I figure it best to play through it before tackling this. I played through P5 when it first was released but some of the story details are now a little too hazy for me to walk straight into Strikers.

That's cool. It probably makes sense if you have the means to enjoy P5 or P5R first that you'd want to do so.
