Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order still has a long while to go before DLC Pack 3 launches. However, on social media, Nintendo has offered up a look at Doctor Doom. We have his character art above.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order – Fantastic Four: Shadow of Doom launches Spring 2020.


The fifth “Morgana Travel Report” video for Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers has been released. It covers the two cities of Kyoto and Osaka as well as the character of Zenkichi Hasegawa. We’ve summarized it below (credit goes to Gematsu for the translation):


The historic city of Kyoto is one of Japan’s major tourism spots. The Phantom Thieves head there after a proposal by public safety police officer Zenkichi Hasegawa, who is travelling with them. Zenkichi is actually from Kyoto, and his daughter Akane still lives there. She’s a big fan of the Phantom Thieves.

Naturally, Kyoto also has a Jail that the Phantom Thieves have to conquer. It takes on the appearance of a huge shrine, with lots of torii gates within that warp you to different locations when you pass through them. Also, it seems like something will happen to Zenkichi in this Jail.


Another major tourism spot in western Japan, Osaka is famous for its good food and abundance of cultural activities. Osaka is also the home of the famous IT company Madicce, which somehow seems to be involved with the incidents the Phantom Thieves are investigating. The president of Madicce is Akira Konoe, an ambitious man who has become popular due to his charisma and the innovative services his company provides.

The Osaka Jail takes on the look of a futuristic city, complete with surveillance cameras and security robots. The enemies here are extremely strong, so you will need to be cautious.

Zenkichi Hasegawa eventually awakens a Persona and fights alongside the Phantom Thieves. He fights using a large sword, with gives him a long reach in melee combat, as well as two pistols. He can steal HP from enemies as well as using a berserk ability to cut down his own HP in exchange for higher attack power.

His Persona is Valjean (modelled after Jean Valjean of Victor Hugo’s Les Mis√©rables), who uses Gun and Almighty skills in addition to strengthening his allies.

Here’s the video showcasing Kyoto and Osaka:

A Switch-specific Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers web commercial has emerged that appears to give us a first look at gameplay on Nintendo’s console. Check it out below.

Omega Force’s specialty is the Musou genre. The developer is known for its franchises such as Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors. That hack-and-slash gameplay has also extended into other IPs like Zelda with Hyrule Warriors, One Piece with One Piece: Pirate Warriors, and more.

Omega Force’s latest project is Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, but it’s not the same kind of Musou gameplay we’re used to seeing. It’s more of an action-RPG rather than pure hack-and-slash with a focus on story.

Koei Tecmo director Kazutoshi Sekiguchi explained how the project evolved during development, telling Dengeki PlayStation:

Nintendo has published another character introduction for the Fire Emblem: Three Houses – Cindered Shadows DLC. For today’s update, we have information regarding Constance.

  • Byleth
  • the three house leaders: Edelgard, Dimitri and Claude
  • one representative from each house: Linhardt, Ashe and Hilda
