To spite a trailer which was dropped early and removed… and reappeared (perhaps the work of the Phantom Thieves?), Persona 5 Strikers has been officially announced for PS4, Switch and Steam. Coming to these platforms on February 23rd, 2021, the latest adventure of the Phantom Thieves sees them going on a road trip across Japan in a Musou-style game. It will be interesting to see how developer Omega Force incorporates mechanics from the beloved RPG series into the hack and slash gameplay which musou games have been known for. If the Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity is any indicator, it should be an interesting experience for fans of both Persona and Musou games.
Those looking to secure their copy can do so at various retailers and platforms on December 10th, 2020 at 4pm PST. Against my best judgement I would recommend doing so at Gamestop if you are looking for a physical copy as they will be offering a Joker Keychain with pre-orders.
