‘Persona 5 Strikers’ Name Listed in Nintendo Upcoming Software Lineup


Nintendo’s latest earnings release for the six-month period ended September 2019, posted today, includes Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers in the company’s “Upcoming Software Publishers’ Title Lineup” section for third-party publishers.

Curiously, however, the full name of this Atlus and Koei Tecmo collaboration action RPG is omitted, and is shortened to simply “Persona 5 Strikers.” This is a potential indication at what could be the English title of the game.

This title change for P5S would be similar to Persona 4 Arena in 2012, changed from “Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena” in Japanese. Subsequently, there was Persona 4 Arena Ultimax in 2014, changed from “Persona 4: The Ultimax in Ultra Suplex Hold” in Japanese.

Recently, “Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night” and “Persona 5: Dancing Star Night” were changed to Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight in the English localizations last year.

Persona 5 The Royal” has been changed to Persona 5 Royal for the upcoming English release in Spring 2020.

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