'Persona 5 S' Isn't A Switch Port, It's Persona 5 Scramble, A Musou Game

Following yesterday’s detailing of a cool, expanded edition of Persona 5 coming to the PlayStation 4, today Atlus reveals Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, a musou action RPG by Dynasty Warriors developer Omega Force, coming to the Nintendo Switch and PS4. Welp.

Fans of Omega Force games like Dynasty Warriors, Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors should be jazzed at the idea of a game where Persona 5 characters battle endless hordes of enemies using spectacular special moves.

Nintendo fans hoping that the code name “Persona 5 S” used on Atlus’ teaser website for the game was code for a Switch port of Persona 5, not so much.

At least we’ve got Joker in Smash Bros., right?

No word on a release date or a stateside release. Surely we’ll get both in time.

    I'm new to Persona 5 and I am excited for Persona 5 Scramble The Phantom Strikers and that it's coming to both Nintendo Switch and Playstation 4.
    I know it's not the original Persona 5 game we were hoping for on the Nintendo Switch.
    But you know what fuck it I'm absolutely excited for Persona 5 Scramble The Phantom Strikers and that developers Koei Tecmo and Omega Force the developers behind Dynasty Warriors Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors are joining forces with Atlus to bring us this Musou RPG action game that's coming to Nintendo Switch and Playstation 4.
    And for all you people saying that Persona 5 Scramble The Phantom Strikers is going to suffer fuck you.
    I'm excited and I can't wait to play this amazing Musou RPG game I've already played Hyrule Warriors and this Musou RPG action developed by Koei Tecmo and Omega Force.
    Thank you so much for making that announcement Atlus and I can't wait to play Persona 5 Scramble The Phantom Strikers for the Nintendo Switch when it get a release date soon.

    LOL WTF?!

    Exactly what NO ONE asked for...

      Yeah ... sounds like the Persona equivalent of Valkyria Revolution, which is a terrible terrible game.

        I dunno, it was a similar situation with Hyrule Warriors and that went on to be so successful it got a port to another two systems.

    Given how well Persona 4 Golden works on the Vita it's a shame we won't see P5 on the Switch. Not that I'd have been buying it anyway if it wasn't a 'Royal' version but still.
