Released back in February 2020, Persona 5 Scramble hit stores in the East for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4. Now that it’s near the end of the year, fans in the West are still hoping for a localization. Sadly, no news has really shown up on a for-sure Western release.
In April 2020, it was reported that the Atlus game’s localization was ‘still being planned’. Ever since then, fans of Persona 5, the game’s prequel, have been showing their pleads online for the title. It’s still a mystery whether or not a translation for Persona 5 Scramble is being worked on right now.

Atlus also conducted a survey towards Persona 5 Royal players, wondering whether or not they’d be interested in the game. It seems like a given, seeing as just recently Atlus responded surprisingly to the title’s sales. Apparently, Persona 5 Scramble exceeded their expectations. The Persona series has always been a huge success, so it’s no surprise to fans that the sequel sold exceedingly well.
With the lack of news and seeming disinterest on Atlus’ part, will we ever get a localization? If fans keep speaking up, it’s very probable. Clearly, with their survey, they have intentions of it, after receiving positive fan feedback. It would also be a very profitable title, especially after how well Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal did in the west.
What do you think? Would you be excited to see Persona 5 Scramble get a localization? Let us know in the comments! Maybe 2020 will give us something good in the end…
