Atlus appears to be open to localizing Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers.
A new survey, brought to attention by Persona Central, was released by Atlus for those who bought the recently released Persona 5 Royal, asking fans if they would like to see western localization for Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, which released exclusively in Japan on the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch back in February.

The game, while technically a spin-off, is a direct sequel to the original Persona 5, released back in 2017. The game was developed by the same team behind the Dynasty Warriors franchise, working recently with Nintendo on games such as Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors.
It would only make sense for the game to be localized as the gameplay of Persona 5 Scramble has a market here, as shown by the multiple releases of the Nintendo collaborations with Omega Force. Hyrule Warriors even hit decent amounts of success for Koei Tecmo, selling over 115,848 copies worldwide.
This survey shows that Atlus is still more than willing to release the game in the west and that they aren’t forgetting about the western Persona fans.
What do you think? Do you hope they’ll bring it to the west? Tell us below!
