Yesterday saw the release of a new trailer for Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. Today, even more info about the game has been released via the latest “Morgana Travel Report” video. The video shows off the next main location the Phantom Thieves will be visiting – the tropical island of Okinawa, as well as the cooking and requests systems (credit goes to Persona Central for translating the video).

Okinawa

While they’re solving the case of the mysterious Jails, the Phantom Thieves head to Kugojima, a resort island near mainland Okinawa. They’re enjoying a bit of vacation in this tropical paradise, but something seems strange about the residents of the island. The Okinawa Jail takes on the form of an abandoned laboratory. It’s unclear at first what happened here, but voice recorders that were left behind might provide some clues.

You will encounter several obstacles in this Jail – you may have to make use of the so-called Phantom Moves which allow you to do a variety of stealthy actions, such as breaking through panes of glass that are blocking your way. Sometimes, you will also encounter giant locked doors. To get through them, a so-called Hacking Battle will occur. Protect your Navigator from Shadows while she’s hacking the security system of the door.

Cooking

Briefly glimpsed in yesterday’s trailer, there’s a cooking system called Joker’s Kitchen. Gather ingredients and use them to create dishes that have a variety of effects in combat, such as restoring HP of buffing stats. You can obtain new recipes from event shops and other locations.

Requests

It wouldn’t be an RPG without quests. People in the various locations you’ll visit throughout the game will have requests for you, and completing them will earn you a variety of rewards. Sometimes, even your fellow Phantom Thieves will have requests for you.

Here’s the video detailing the Okinawa location:

The latest “Morgana Travel Report” video has been published by Atlus, revealing a host of new information about Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, including new location Sapporo, Persona fusion and more (credit goes to Persona Central for translating and compiling the information).

The next location the Phantom Thieves travel to on their trip around the country is Sapporo, a historical city famous for its architecture and hot springs. In Sapporo, the Phantom Thieves meet a politician named Mariko Hyodo (voiced by Kyoko Terase). She’s diligent and a hard worker, but her current popularity seems somewhat unusual. She’s also acquainted with Haru’s father. The Sapporo Jail turns out to be a city covered in ice. The Phantom Thieves will have to solve a variety of puzzles to progress – and they also get to do some snowboarding.

The second part of the Morgana Travel Report focuses on some game mechanics. Once again, thanks to his Wild Card ability, the protagonist can use multiple personas, and he can switch between them in battle. There are two ways to obtain new personas: picking up masks from defeated enemies and of course, the series staple, persona fusion. The Velvet Room occupants will aid you in creating new powerful personas. You can further strengthen personas by using Persona Points, which can be gained via fusion and as rewards from battling. These points can be used to level up personas and to increase their various parameters. Another returning feature are skill cards, which can be used to teach personas skills they wouldn’t normally learn.

Here’s the video introducing Sapporo:
