We know that eastern development titles typically come to the West later due to location issues. ATLUS is renowned for offering several good games that have their installed base of players in the West, which unfortunately has to wait several months to test the English versions. This is the situation that Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers is going through, which debuted in early 2020 in Japan and does not yet have a release date in the West. However, some clues indicate that the wait to be able to play it will not be long.
So far, the developer of Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, has mentioned that it is already preparing a version for the West, but fans were discouraged because in the last financial report of Koei Tecmo (company that owns the developer Omega Force) did not reference to a release in America, which could mean that the premiere was far away.
However, today there is good news for fans that will give them hope again, as, as Gematsu pointed out, a record of the English version of Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers appeared in several Asian stores, both for PlayStation 5 and for Nintendo Switch.
In case you missed it: the Persona franchise has already exceeded a millionaire number of copies sold.
Persona 5 Scramble to debut in the West in early 2021
Specifically, the stores that included the new Phantom Thieves adventure in their catalog were PS Enterprise (India), Quisahn and Toy or Game (Singapore). According to the information, both versions will go on sale on February 23, and it is expected that just as they will debut in Asia, they will also do so in the rest of the world, taking into account that they will feature “[texto] in English with voice acting in Japanese or English ”, something that the original edition does not include.
As you can see, this is not a confirmation of the release date of Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, since so far ATLUS has not spoken about it. However, as Gematsu points out, this could mean that the global launch is close, as the premiere of Persona 5 Royal with English language support debuted at the same time as the western version of the title. We will keep you informed.
