Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, alternatively known as P5S, is an action-based spinoff/sequel of Persona 5. It is part of the Koei Tecmo and Omega Force created "Musou" or "Warriors" series of games, which involves defeating a large quantity of enemies at once. It is also the first Action RPG in the Persona series.
While they're on vacation, they hear the news about people being chased and attacked by mysterious creatures, causing them to become unconscious. Morgana reveals that these creatures are shadows that are taking the hearts of these victims, which are in form of gemstones, and sealing them in a prison-like seal room, similar to the prison rooms in the inner depths of Mementos. With it looking like this incident is happening all over Japan, the worst case scenario is that the cognitive world of the Metaverse the Phantom Thieves sealed many months ago has returned.
With the seeming return of the Metaverse, along with their ability to use Personas again, the Phantom Thieves decide to strike against these new enemies in order to save the hearts of everyone all over Japan with the help of a mysterious new girl named Sophia, who's also capable of defeating shadows.
