Forums - Gaming Discussion - Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers (Dynasty Warriors/Musou spinoff)

For the record, I don't really care for musou games so I might not get this at launch, but I am a sucker for Persona spinoffs, and this being on Switch is a good incentive for me.

Honestly I was kinda fearing this day ever since Joker got announced in Smash; so many people who never played Persona want it on Switch, which is fine cause it's a great series and not everyone owns a PlayStation, but people kept expecting it to the point where expectations were so high to the point where everyone seemed convinced it was coming, and as soon as I saw P5R was PS4 only, I knew something was up.

I don't care either way cause I'll just pick up P5R on PS4 anyways, I just find the strong desire to play a game from a series they haven't really touched and the desire for it to be released on their platform of choice just cause the series hasn't really touched the platforms under their preferred company kinda weird, since it just seems so spontaneous. I saw a good amount of Nintendo fans become Persona fans when Joker in Smash happened, and I can tell some of them REALLY enjoy things like the music and characters, despite not playing the games, which is cool since Smash is good at marketing series to people who aren't familiar with then, but I guess it feels like this weird relationship, like being a fan of this actor despite never watching their movies or something.

People aren't gonna agree with what I say at all, and that's fine, just my perspective I guess, my very messy unconventional perspective.

The guy is just salty and its pretty obvious.

On Topic:

Considering that Nintendo is getting all sorts of Persona 5 related games (Q and now this), i would think its only fair if we start getting some Shin Megami Tensei related games... but i wont be port begging for said games because i simply absolutely hate the act of port begging, i have to wonder if the people who begged for P5 for years will finally buy a PS3, 4 or 5 to play the game or if they will just simply ignore it from now on, even though a lot of them acted like they were bigger fans of the game than those who actually played it, (ive seen a lot of people like that especailly on Gematsu).

I doubt i will buy Scramble since i just find that genre particularly boring, its the type of game i would likely buy if we werent sorrounded by so many other amazing games that i rather spend my time on.

Salty? Pls.. I couldn't care less.

I just find funny how some people are worked over the fact of others just assuming that could be a persona 5 port for switch bc of the recent Atlus and Snash bros activities. Calling out absurd, bc nintendo never got a mainline persona game (so??) , it would be stupid announcing the same game with adding just a "switch version" on the title (Dragon Quest and Dragon ball Xenoverse????).

And now that personaS turn out to be a musou game the same ones are like"HA nintento fans now will learn and stop the port begging"

Im sorry if I can clearly see how obvious are their behave. 

What if ps4 get SMTV R as exclusive in exchange? Also, Persona is casual anime cliche otaku compared to SMT anyway. After playing 3 and 4, i found nothing amazing about it. P5? Another show about high school students (again) with super power who save the world by power of friendship and idols. For sure P6, 7 and 8 will repeat the same thing. It's too good that make you mad like this? I don't think so

That looks pretty nifty.

Still don't get why anyone assumed that "S" meant "Switch". That was a reach to start with.

I think a lot of it has to do with Dragon Quest XI S.

If you like either of those games, then there are literally dozens of similar games that are worth playing. It's where the genre is more proliferated. 

While I agree that the Bayonetta 2 port begging was bad, Bayonetta was a PS3/360 game first lol. Monster Hunter 4 had zero port begging to my memory. People just wanted a Monster Hunter, period.

I agree, in fact the Trials of Cold Steel series is escencially another Persona game that in my opinion is even better and the only reason people aint port begging it, is because its nowhere as popular as Persona, but quality wise its there (except for the presentation and music but hey its better on the actual gameplay department so its a good trade off).

I'd argue that the music in Cold Steel is at least equal to it. The styles are very different, but Falcom is one of the best ever with music. Trails games are excellent!
