Switch, PS4, and now PC is coming.
Persona 5 Strikers – Musu Spin of Omega Force, the developer of the Warriors series in Atlas’ acclaimed JRPG, is likely to travel west on February 23 next year, according to an official trailer that has been pulled.
Persona 5 Strikers is out of Japan (where it is known as Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers) providing a sequel set six months after the original game event.
One Piece, Barsark, Fire Emblem, Dragon Quest, and Zelda of Legend are the favorites – the latest in a long list of big franchises to offer Warriors treatment – but notable for the way it is built on Frantic, the much-worn hack-and-slash. Slaughterhouse mouse games are commonly known.
Much of that expansion is directly inspired by Persona 5, which means real-world roaming and storytelling progression, Dungeon crawling fights that blend chaotic real-time battles with familiar Persona power, and even platforming – and it’s all delivered with Persona 5’s impeccable delivery. There has been a sense of style.
It sounds like a lot of fun, in other words, and Persona fans have been eagerly awaiting the word of Western liberation since Japan’s debut. Looks like it’s here now – but it’s not Pretty much Officially – has now been removed courtesy of a listed video on the Atlas YouTube channel.
Of course, as the internet is, the mirrors of the announcement trailer have started popping up all over the place, not only revealing the West launch date of February 23rd, but the news of a PC release via Steam with the main platforms Switch and PS4.
Atlas hasn’t yet commented on the video, but if it doesn’t, it looks as good as any place for the official announcement of next week’s Game Awards.
