Persona 5 Strikers demo seemingly won’t launch in the West

Atlus announced last week that Persona 5 Strikers will be releasing in the West on February 23, 2021, for Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Steam. The original Japanese version received a demo before release, which had Western fans of the series hoping they would get a chance to give the game a go before its English language debut. Unfortunately, according to RPG Site, Atlus has no plans to release a demo before the game’s launch, though this may change in time.

While a demo may not be coming early, fans eager to play the game as soon as possible can pick up the Persona 5 Strikers Digital Deluxe Edition. Along with loads of DLC, a digital artbook, the game’s soundtrack, the Digital Deluxe version also lets you play the game four days early, starting February 19. Unfortunately for fans that like a bit of physical media, this edition is digital only.

If you’re interested in picking the game up on Switch, the official Nintendo website was updated earlier today with the game’s file size.

Make sure you free up at least 12 GB of space on your system before February 19 so that you’re ready for the release of this musou-style RPG as soon as it drops.
