The latest game in the Persona series, developed in collaboration between Atlus’ Persona Team and Koei Tecmo’s Omega Force, is called Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers in Japan. This action RPG has not been announced for English localization, as of yet.
However, in Nintendo’s earnings release reported in October 2019, a section reserved for third-party publishers listed the upcoming Persona game with the title “Persona 5 Strikers.” This was a potential indication at an English title for the game, changed from the original Japanese.
Now, SEGA Games has registered a trademark as of December 3, 2019 with a logo for “Persona 5 Strikers.” This is a strong indication of what could be the English title and logo for the game.
