«FISTS OF JUSTICE»
As the end of the week rolls around, it's time for the Atlus Trailer Making Machine™ to spring into action, feeding off another character clip from its upcoming hack 'n' slash brawler Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. This week brings us a dose of royalty, as we reunite with one of P5's most popular characters, Makoto Niijima.
Makoto Niijima is the intelligent, articulate, and rule-abiding student president of Shujin Academy, tasked with investigating rumors that the Phantom Thieves may be operating inside the school. Initially ruthless - almost antagonistic - Makoto eventually gives way to the realization that corruption is rampant in his world and social reform is badly needed, eventually unleashing his repressed rebellious streak via his alter ego Phantom Thief, Queen.
Once a card-holding member of the vigilante team, Makoto quickly establishes herself as the pragmatic "mother" of the team, using her wits and leadership skills to guide her friends to victory, making sure they don't slump on her studies, the absolute cop). Despite his somewhat bossy nature, Makoto is a key member of The Phantom Thieves, bringing a vital network and tactical knowledge to their missions.
In the trailer, we see Makoto hanging out with the gang at a festival and also enjoying a picnic on the beach, before battling against the Shadow armies, captivating his martial arts abilities and his trusty bike, Johanna, to get the job done. . It's also worth noting that I'm completely enthralled by her cool new bolero jacket, which alone is worth the entrance fee.
Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers launches in Japan on February 20 on PS4 and Nintendo Switch. No date has been announced for the inevitable western release.
