Makoto Niijima in the personal trailer for Persona 5 Scramble – review

Atlus continues to re-introduce heroes Persona 5, which almost in full force will migrate to the new action movie Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. And now the turn came to Makoto Niijima, known as the Queen.

In Persona 5, Makoto acted as a serious, unflappable and responsible student, chairman of the school board. Since then, a lot of time and events have passed, and in The Phantom Strikers she is not afraid to give vent to feelings and emotions.

In the battle, Makoto is armed with revolvers and studded gloves. And her person, the living motorcycle of John (named after the legendary popess), causes nuclear damage and is able to protect and heal associates.

Some time ago Dengeki playstation conducted a live broadcast. During a two-hour stream, reporters, voice actors and Atlus producer Daisuke Kaneda showed a number of fragments from Persona 5 Scramble.

In particular, in the recording you can see how the heroes explore the ghost prison in Sendai (from 1:16:00). And in the final of the passage of the dungeon, they meet with an intermediate boss, Pyro Jack (from 1:43:00). The battle with him takes place on the Hard difficulty level, but does not last long.

Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers in Japan will be released on PS4 and Nintendo Switch in February 2023. The date of the western release is still unknown.
