Persona 5 Scramble looks like a pretty stellar follow-up to the original game, but series fans outside of Japan have been waiting quite a while to even hear when they’ll be able to play the game. That wait may be over soon according to a recent listing of the game in a Koei Tecmo financial report. In Koei Tecmo’s financial statements for the first quarter of the current fiscal year, a western release of Persona 5 Scramble for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 appeared within a list of planned future games. There’s no hint of a release date on the slide, which you can see for yourself just below, but it’s wonderful to finally have some explicit acknowledgment of a western version of this long-awaited follow-up to what many consider the generation’s best JRPG.
While previous reports by Koei Tecmo mentioned an “overseas” release for Persona 5 Scramble, we couldn’t be positive that that was referencing anything other than the Chinese and Korean releases of the game planned for June 2020. Given the (much deserved) popularity of Persona 5, we all sort of assumed that the game would make it over to Europe and the Americas eventually, but it’s great to finally have that confirmed. It’d be nice to see more details quite soon, but in the meantime, we’ll keep on hoping that the original Persona 5 somehow finds its way to Switch.
