Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers Gameplay Features Okinawa Jail, Completing Requests


Today’s Dengeki PlayStation Live #75 live stream featured a segment on Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers with new live gameplay.

Hosted by voice actor Kanako Takatsuki and the Dengeki PS staff, Atlus producer Daisuke Kaneda also made an appearance to introduce elements of Persona 5 Scramble. This time, the focus of the gameplay was on the Okinawa area, which was featured in Travelling Morgana Newsletter #4.

Kaneda demonstrated gathering ingredients for cooking, and Takatsuki played through parts of the Sapporo Jail for a request. In Persona 5 Scramble, it’s possible to revisit previous Jails to complete requests, which are essentially side quests.

A Dengeki PlayStation staff member proceeded to play the game on Hard mode, facing a mid-boss in the Okinawa Jail.

Notable time stamps for the 2-hour long live stream embedded below (which also featured Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet) are the following:

  • 1:02:50: Start of the Persona 5 Scramble segment, in Okinawa.
  • 1:12:45: Gameplay footage played by Kanako Takatsuki featuring the Sapporo Jail, to complete a request.
  • 1:32:54: Fighting a Hecatoncheir mid-boss in the Okinawa Jail on Hard difficulty.

Other than the final segment, the gameplay shown was set to the Normal difficulty setting.

Dengeki PlayStation Live #70 last month featured a similar segment for Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, focusing on the Shibuya Jail and the Sendai Jail.

Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers will be released for the PS4 and Nintendo Switch on February 20, 2020 in Japan.
