Atlus shared details for Persona 5 Scramble’s Sendai parts in a “Traveling Morgana Report” that takes us to the new area with info on its new story and characters.
The Phantom Thieves were in the middle of chasing after the Shibuya incident when investigator Zenkichi Hasegawa appears out of the blue. He informs the Phantom Thieves that they’re suspects of a strange incident and the police are out to arrest them. They must clear their name, and to do so they’ll head to a different world called “Jail” to solve the Shibuya case.
Rumor from Sendai
However, the incident involving Jail isn’t only taking place in Shibuya but all across Japan. In order to solve the incidents from each area, the Phantom Thieves go on an RV trip. Their first stop in Persona 5 Scramble’s adventure is Sendai, the land that was once ruled by Date Masamune.
Sendai is known for their Tanabata festivals, but they’re also famous for their food culture with beef tongue, zunda, and such.
Ango Natsume (CV: Daisuke Kishio)
A light novel author who has become super popular in recent years. His passionate fans are excited during an autograph event but something feels off.
Ichinose Kuon (CV: Yoko Hikasa)
The Phantom Thieves meet a woman named Ichinose Kuon at the beef tongue shop during their trip. She pops up to talk all about beef tongue then vanishes. Who is she?
In the midst of all that, the Phantom Thieves reach the Sendai Jail. It has a bit of a creepy Middle Ages vibe to it, and there are powerful Shadows known as the Big Four. There are all kinds of tough Shadows guarding the place, you can’t let your guard down.
