A Persona 5 Scramble English release date may be announced in the next few weeks according to multiple Asian retailers who have begun to list the game for sale.
Persona 5 Scramble is a game that does things a little differently compared to the franchise. The core Persona games are turn-based RPGs, but Persona 5 Scramble is a brawler with entirely different gameplay. This isn't entirely unusual for the Persona franchise; the Persona Dancing games have proven to be popular enough to get three versions released thus far, one each for Persona 3 through Persona 5.
The game was announced more than a year ago, but a Western release proved elusive. Now, Indonesian retailer PS Enterprise has listed the game for both PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. This on its own would raise some eyebrows, but a comment from the retailer has proved to be particularly surprising.
"Yeah guys, according to the supplier in 2021, when is there no info yet," read a machine-translated comment from the retailer on PC Enterprise's Facebook page.
PC Enterprise is not the only retailer that has listed the game. Pakistan's Toyorgame has also listed the game as noted by @LocalizePS5 on Twitter (via ResetEra). This information isn't our first hint at a Persona 5 Scramble English release date, either; previously, a Koei Tecmo financial report noted a survey sent out to some Persona 5 owners which indicated it might be coming.
When is the Persona 5 Scramble English Release Date?
The Persona 5 Scramble English release date may be February 23, 2021, according to the retail listing at Pakistan's Toyorgame. However, this isn't set in stone; PS Enterprise simply lists "2021" for the game's release.
Either way, two retailers independently listing the game at the same time might be a good indication that it's actually being launched in English sometime next year. For now, all Persona fans can do is sit and wait. In the meantime, you can buy Persona 5 Royal via its official website starting at $59.99 or your regional equivalent.
