Ever since I first gave it a try back in 2017 I’ve been a pretty big fan of Persona 5. I love it’s stylish presentation, its rockin’ soundtrack and thoughtful gameplay.

Persona 5 Scramble’s Opening Movie is Pretty Stylin’

It may still be a year away, but I’m actually kinda psyched for Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers.

It’s not hard to see why when looking at it from the outside and even less difficult if you’ve had…
