IGN: Persona 5 S is almost a direct sequel to Persona 5

A lot of people were amazed when Persona 5 Scramble was announced for Nintendo Switch given that we haven’t received Persona 5. That and that it’s also a new musou game.

However those of you who have played Persona 5 will find that Persona 5 Scramble is basically a direct sequel to the critically acclaimed PlayStation JRPG, that’s according to IGN.


While on the outset it looks to be a stylish musuo game, there’s plenty of traditional Persona gameplay outside of the action-packed combat sections with IGN noting;

Person 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers may be a more full-fledged sequel to Persona 5 than some people are expecting, and its new Japanese trailer and demo are nearly calling it a Persona 5-2.

About Persona 5 S

Persona 5 Scramble is crossover between Koei Tecmo’s hack and slash Dynasty Warriors series, and Atlus’s turn-based role-playing game Persona series. As a result, it features gameplay elements from both, such as the real-time action combat of the former with the turn-based Persona-battling aspect of the latter. The game is set six months after the events of Persona 5, and follows Joker and the rest of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts as they end up in a mysterious version of Tokyo filled with supernatural enemies.
