Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers Announced for PS4 and Switch and It's Not What We Expected

This isn't the first Persona 5 spin-off, but it is the first Persona game on the Switch.

Persona 5 is coming to the Nintendo Switch, but not in the form you probably wanted. Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers was revealed today at the P-Sound concert in Japan, and it's coming to the Switch and PS4.

The Phantom Strikers is a spin-off musou game, being developed by both Atlus and Koei Tecmo. It features the main cast of Persona 5, including Ren, Ryuji, Ann, and others, hacking and slashing their way to victory in a Musou game.

This wouldn't be the first Dynasty Warriors-type spin-off game that Koei Tecmo has developed. Hyrule Warriors was released last year for the Nintendo Switch, bringing the Musou genre to the world of The Legend of Zelda.

As of right now, there's no clear release date, or even a release window, for Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. We'll have to wait and see for details on when this spin-off game releases for PS4 and Switch.

In other Persona 5-related news, Persona 5 Royal was fully revealed for the first time yesterday. For a complete recap of all the new additions for the re-release, including new characters, Confidants, and more, head over to our Persona 5 Royal guide.
