An Action RPG Featuring a Completely New Story
Persona 5, which has sold more than 2 .7 million copies worldwide, makes its long-awaited action RPG debut on PlayStation 4 and Switch!
This is a completely new story set after the events of Persona 5.
The game is a collaborative effort between the Persona Team and Koei Tecmo’s Omega Force.
The Phantom Thieves’ Journey Throughout Japan Begins
Half-a-year after the ending of Persona 5, the Phantom Thieves of Hearts get together for summer vacation, but get wrapped up in a new incident. Mystery cases are occurring all over Japan. Palaces, the cognitive worlds of warped adults, have returned? Donning their disguises once again, the Phantom Theives set out to resolve this new incident…
Joker is not the only protagonist of Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers—you can directly control all members of the Phantom Thieves other than the navigator. Switch up characters to fight as the situation calls for it. Run through the cities full of Shadows with dynamic, Persona-summoning action.
Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers will be launching February 2020 in Japan and sometime in 2020 for North America and Europe. It will be arriving on PS4 and Nintendo Switch.

Earlier today in Japan Atlus held a live broadcast featuring none other than Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, a musou mixed game co-developed by Omega Force. During the broadcast we had a lot of new information on the title, along with a proper reveal trailer and a release date… for Japan.
The game will be launching February 20th on Playstation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan. No real news on the Western front right now aside that it’s become a 2020 window. Hopefully there won’t be much of a gap between the games, but Atlus don’t have a good track record on localisation dates.
Below you can see the brand new trailer for the game:
It certainly is looking very stylish and much more than just a Dynasty Warriors reskin. We hope to see some English footage in the near future!

More information has been released for upcoming Bandai Namco and KOEI Tecmo collaboration One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4. Two new characters have been announced, being Luffy Snakeman and Charlotte Katakuri. Two new fighters for you to rack up that kill count in spectacular fashion!
You can read an official description for them both from Bandai Namco below:
Set sail to Whole Cake Island in One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4 and meet Charlotte Katakuri, the second son of the Charlotte family and one of the Three Sweet Commanders of the Big Mom Pirates! Katakuri is considered the strongest of the Three Sweet Commanders, with the power to flick jellybeans at the speed and power of bullets and is viewed by the World Government as an extremely dangerous threat. Only the power of Luffy Fourth Gear Snakeman can stop Katakuri… or can he?

Correction: The character seems to be the God Erlang Shen, not Emperor Wen of Sui.
We aren’t done yet when it comes to news of the upcoming upgraded edition of Warriors Orochi 4, this time with a leak coming from the official Japanese Playstation Store. A new character that has yet to be officially announced by KOEI Tecmo has appeared, and goes by the name Yang Jian. You may also know him by the title Emperor Wen of Sui.
This news comes from the official store page for the Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate (Full and Upgrade Pack) Deluxe Edition set, where on the page it details you will get special bonus costumes for the character. We do not know yet what role he will play in the game, but it is still good to know there are more characters than the five previously announced.

KOEI Tecmo had leaked a while ago that Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate would be coming out, and will be launching later this year in Japan. Now we know that the West is also receiving the updated title, and will be arriving February 2020.
The game will be launching on PS4, XB1, Nintendo Switch and Steam. You’ll be able to buy the entire game physically or digitally, though if you already own the base game you can buy a cheaper upgrade bundle much like A.O.T 2 Final Battle.
