Persona 5 Strikers has been out in Japan for about a year, but it’s finally heading west next month. We now have gameplay from the Switch version in English, which you can find below.

This past week, Atlus was kind enough to invite us to a pre-release event for the upcoming Switch title Persona 5 Strikers. We were able to go hands-on with the game to see the first full mission, including story, Warriors-style combat, and even the introduction to the mysterious new party member, Sophia.

Months after it came out in Japan, Persona 5 Strikers is finally coming west in 2021. Atlus had a number of the game’s voice actors react to the recently-released trailer announcing the English release.

Here’s the full video:

Around the release of Persona 5 Strikers in Japan, Atlus released a demo on the Switch eShop. Unfortunately, it appears that there won’t be anything similar for the west. Atlus said that there are currently no plans for a demo in North America and Europe.

Regarding the voice acting, it turns out that this was all done remotely in light of the pandemic that’s taken place this year. Those that prefer the Japanese voices will still have that as an option.

Atlus will also offer a Digital Deluxe Edition for Persona 5 Strikers. It includes the same digital soundtrack, digital art book, and behind the scenes video from Best Buy, but also extra item packs and more music from the Persona series. Just as significant is that you’ll get four days early access with its release scheduled for February 19, 2021.

Here’s the official announcement and trailer upload for Persona 5 Strikers:

Dragalia Lost has had a few crossovers, ranging from Fire Emblem to Monster Hunter. Persona may be next – specifically Persona 5 Strikers.

It was revealed earlier today that Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers is heading west as Persona 5 Strikers in February. Atlus didn’t intend for that news to be shared so early, but the cat is out of the bag in any case. There’s been speculation that the reveal was planned for The Game Awards 2020 next week.

Despite the leak, Atlus isn’t making an official announcement just yet. The company is instead teasing news for the game that will be shared on December 8. We’ve already seen the trailer and know the release date, so we’re not expecting any bombshells. Still, that should be when official commutation begins.
