After the game was initially announced in April 2019 earlier this year, we recently discovered more details about Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, the upcoming action RPG musou follow-up to 2017’s JRPG hit Persona 5.
With the game nearing its Japanese release date of 20 February 2020, Atlus has revealed that Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers will feature save data bonuses. Those who have access to the save files of certain games will be able to enjoy additional content, which includes a Persona 5 Sound Set containing the original Persona 5‘s Last Surprise & Persona 5 Royal‘s Take Over battle themes.
PS4 users will need to have either the save files of the original Persona 5 or Persona 5 Royal to unlock those bonuses, while Nintendo Switch users will bizarrely require Super Smash Bros. Ultimate play history on their console. That makes sense, considering the brawler game is the only place where Switch users can play as Persona 5 protagonist Joker.
