Koei Tecmo Games released its latest quarterly financial report, for the second quarter of the fiscal year ending in March 2021, on Monday. The report does not make any mention of a Western release for the Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers action role-playing game.
The company's first quarter fiscal report had mentioned a release of the game for PlaySTation 4 and Nintendo Switch in Europe and North America as part of its upcoming games slate. The second quarter report does not make any mention of the game.

Voice actress Misaki Kuno plays Sophia, whose codename is Sophie. Sophia is a mysterious girl who has lost her memories. She wields a yo-yo and a blaster, and she controls Pithos, who is like a Persona.
Persona 5 shipped for the PS4 and PlayStation 3 in Japan in September 2016. The game shipped in North America in April 2017 after a delay. The game features animation sequences from Production I.G.
