Persona 5 Scramble West

Persona fans have started feeling a little uneasy about the yet-to-be-confirmed localisation of Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. The action title, which released in Japan near the beginning of this year, featured in a Koei Tecmo financial report back in July, essentially pointing to a Western release at some point in the future.

However, the company's latest report has no mention of Persona 5 Scramble, leading to fears that localisation may have been cancelled. From our perspective, we wouldn't worry too much about its absence. It could be a simple case of Koei Tecmo not wanting the internet to jump to conclusions when neither it nor SEGA are yet to make any official announcement.

The bottom line is that the coronavirus has scuppered everyone's plans over the last eight months or so, and with the next-generation of consoles set to dominate headlines going into 2021, it only makes sense to hold back on Scramble. Hopefully we hear something concrete next year.
