Trailer goes up, trailer comes down
A funny thing happened on the official Atlus YouTube channel tonight. A trailer that confirms the western release for Persona 5 Strikers, the long-awaited Musou spin-off to the best-selling JRPG, was set up with the title “ANNOUNCE.” Less than ten minutes later it was gone, but not until the most important details were leaked. Persona 5 Strikers launches February 23, 2021 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Steam.
Fun thing about removing a trailer: as long as you don’t leave the page, you can keep watching it for as long as you want. It’s slick as hell, and I’m looking forward to Atlus posting it again.
Persona 5 Strikers was originally teased two years ago this month and released in Japan as Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers February 20 this year. Not sure why the rest of the world had to wait another 365 days to get it, but with Age of Calamity out and this on the way, Musou fans will have some good months of hacking and slashing ahead of them.
