The game is set six months after the events of Persona 5, with Joker and the other Phantom Thieves of Hearts taking a tour around Japan when they hear rumors that people have been attacked by Shadows, leaving them unconscious in the real world as they wake up in a mysterious version of Tokyo and other places in Japan filled with them.
As a hack and slash role-playing video game, Scramble is the pint-sized partner to the epic odyssey that is Persona 5. The original game got a Royal edition, which packed even more into the story and side stuff, but at no cost to its overall length, cleverly. Scramble is likely to attract people who haven’t played either edition, due to its approachable mix of mechanics coming from Koei Tecmo’s Dynasty Warriors series and Atlus’ Persona series. However, it could be daunting if you don’t know what went down in Persona 5, and how it links to the Shadow invasion of Tokyo in Scramble.
