Getting the band again collectively

To cap off little four-day marketing extravaganza for Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, writer Atlus launched the opening cinematic for the upcoming hack ‘n’ slasher, a spin-off title from the extremely popular anime RPG.

In holding with Persona’s M.O. the P5S intro is a slick and highly-stylised animated music video, which stars our returning heroes The Phantom Thieves as they journey throughout Japan of their R.V., stealing hearts and taking names, like a cerebrally-invasive tackle the Scooby-Doo gang.

We see regulars Joker, Makoto, Haru, Ryuji, Yusuke, Futaba, Ann and Morgana, and catch glimpses of Scramble’s newcomers – yo-yo wielder Sophie and the mysterious Zenkichi. The usually luscious visuals are again by new opening theme “You Are Stronger”, composed by Atsushi Kitajoh, written by Lotus Juice and sung by Lyn, the musical trio whose sound is synonymous with the sequence.

I’m actually prepared for a contemporary tackle the adventures of The Phantom Thieves, and whereas Atlus is but to announce a western localisation simply but, Persona 5 has confirmed such a profitable model within the west {that a} journey to those shores is an inevitability for this action-packed new launch.

Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers launches in Japan on PS4 and Switch February 20.
