As shown in a preview, this week’s issue of Weekly Famitsu magazine includes a 6-page feature on Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers focusing on the new location Sendai.

The feature mostly revolves around information revealed in the “Travelling Morgana Newsletter #2” video released recently.

A parallel world that has been appearing in various places. It’s under the command of a ruler called “King,” with the goal of absorbing negative energy from humans that shadows are formed from.

The Phantom Thieves are suspected by the police, but the public safety officer Zenkichi Hasegawa will provide them with information instead of arresting them.

Master Arts

Character specific abilities that are unlocked the more they are used in battle.


Allocate and unlock points earned by defeating enemies as the story progresses.


If you target enemy weak points, you can perform an “All-Out Attack” and, depending on how strong the enemy is, a special “All-Out Attack” can be activated.

There are also “technicals” when attacking an abnormal enemy. As shown previously, time stops when selecting a skill.
