The Phantom Thieves are back in action as Persona 5: Strikers will arrive in the U.S. on February 23, 2021. Originally, Strikers was released in Japan this year on February 20 but will now arrive in western territories. Recently, Atlus revealed the game with an official trailer, but it was taken down for unknown reasons.
Whatever the reason, you can still find the trailer down below.
Strikers will be a brand new game that takes place six months after the events of Persona 5 and follows Joker and his friends investigating mysterious events that are happening across Japan. Unlike the turn-based action the series is known for, Strikers will be a fully-3D action game in the style of the Dynasty Warriors franchise, where you’ll mow down dozens of enemies in a single combo.
Unlike Persona 5, which was only released on Sony’s Systems, this spin-off will arrive on Nintendo Switch and Steam, as well as on PS4. Persona 5 was first released worldwide on April 4, 2017, for the PS4 and PS3. A special enhanced version of the game, Persona 5 Royal, was released earlier this year on March 31 exclusively for the PS4.
