When it comes to modern Persona game releases in Japan, Atlus establishes official and elaborate spoiler warnings to dissuade players from ruining the experience for others.
With two days left until its release, Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers follows in this tradition, with Atlus having released their warning and distribution guidelines for video and live streaming of the latest Persona game.
Lavenza: In Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, from the final part of the game onwards, the share function is disabled. Please refrain from sharing spoilers.
This is a sort of discipline of the soul, so to speak, so that everyone can enjoy this game equally.
Those who violate this limitation will only be able to answer with, “Let’s go to sleep.”
A curse of being taken away to a Jail and being continuously, severeley “punished” by Alice Hiiragi, and finally having your negative energy snatched away.
Please follow the rules and enjoy the game.
In Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, there is a section from the final part of the game onwards where the game’s sharing functionality is disabled, so that as many customers as possible can enjoy the game.
