Persona 5 Strikers, the latest installation into the popular Persona franchise, is slated to release within the next month.

ATLUS is finally releasing the next Persona spin-off in the United States. Despite having released around the world last year, western fans of the series will officially be able to join in the hack-and-slash fun next month, February 2021. Currently, the game is in pre-order and will remain so until it officially hits shelves.

The work is never done for the fan-favorite Phantom Thieves.

Persona 5 Strikers Release Date

Persona 5 Strikers (P5S) is set to release on Feb. 25, 2021 within the United States. The title had already been released in Japan last year, just under a different name: Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers.

P5S is a collaborative effort between ATLUS and Koei Tecmo who designed it as a unique crossover between the cast of Persona 5 and Dynasty Warriors, respectively. The game is set six months after the events of the former title—essentially ruining the Phantom Thieves' summer vacation. Players will need to uncover the source of corruption plaguing the cities of Japan and strike back against the crisis.

More information about the game can be found on its official website.
