Although we’re still yet to see a mainline Persona game released on the Nintendo Switch, one entry in this series that has been made available (at least in Japan), is the spin-off, Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers.
We’ve been getting updates from Koei Tecmo on a regular basis about a possible western release and the latest reminder has popped up in the company’s recently released financial statements for the first quarter of its fiscal year ending March 2021 (this combines April, May and June 2020).
As explained by Persona Central, a presentation slide about “packaged games” says Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers is still planned for a release in “the West” for the Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.
This follows on from an update in April, when it said something similar, and a month before this, Atlus asked fans in a survey if they would like P5S localised. The signs are certainly there – we just need an official announcement and release date now.
