A number of months ago, Atlus confirmed Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers was coming to the Nintendo Switch.

Now, after a prolonged period of silence, it's announced the game will arrive in Japan on 20th February next year. Fans will be able to select from the standard edition or Treasure Box edition – containing a bunch of additional goodies.

As previously revealed, this is a collaborative effort between the Persona team and Koei Tecmo's Omega Force – and the title itself is based on Warriors-style gameplay.

The latest trailer for the title shows off battles, cut-scenes, city exploration, and new 2D platforming gameplay:

The story in PS5S takes place half-a-year after the ending of Persona 5:

The Phantom Thieves of Hearts get together for summer vacation, but get wrapped up in a new incident. Mystery cases are occurring all over Japan. Palaces, the cognitive worlds of warped adults, have returned? Donning their disguises once again, the Phantom Theives set out to resolve this new incident…

Apart from Joker, players will be able to control all the other members of the Phantom Thieves. The Japanese release is also receiving "first-print purchase bonus" DLC, in the form of eight battle music tracks from previous Persona titles.

Below is the Treasure Box edition of the game, which includes the game, box, 48-page art book, a soundtrack featuring 45 tracks, a theme-song making-of Blu-ray disc, a Morgana towel, and a Persona Team original design sacoche.

The first official live stream for Persona 5 Scramble will take place on 4th November via YouTube and Twitter. At the time of writing, there's been no mention of a local release date.
