As reported by Persona Central, the first action RPG entry into the Persona franchise, Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, has gotten a near-perfect review score of 36/40 from popular Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu.

The review was very favorable and listed the game’s completion time as around 45 hours, with reviewers noting that it felt like a true sequel to Persona 5, despite being in a different genre. One criticism had was that the new fast-paced gameplay finds itself interrupted by cutscenes a bit too frequently.

Persona 5 Scramble follows the Phantom Thieves reuniting months after the events of the original game, their plans to take a vacation changing to focus on a mysterious popular idol, a cryptic app, and a new danger that threatens all of Japan. Their Summer road trip takes on a new purpose.

The game sports fast and frantic gameplay, reportedly transferring the Phantom thieves abilities from Persona 5 very well, this may begin a new trend of exciting new action game styled spin-offs set in the world of Persona.

Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers will be released in Japan for the PS4 and Nintendo Switch, on February 20th. No word yet at the time of writing on a Western release.
