The release date for Persona 5 Strikers has been unveiled via an unlisted video on Atlus’ YouTube channel. The trailer itself has since been pulled, but the diligent denizens of the internet had already downloaded copies of it, so it is still available on the internet. The trailer reveals that the launch date is February 23rd, 2021, and that it is coming to Nintendo Switch, Steam, and PlayStation 4. It was already known that this was coming west, as it was originally revealed at a Koei Tecmo financial forecast back in July. However, no release window was announced at the time. The latest entry in the series has been rather popular in both North America and Europe, so it would’ve been strange for this to not come west as well.

Very shortly after this tweet, Wario64 put out a second tweet saying that the trailer had been pulled, however by this time the internet had already absorbed it. A number of hours later, Atlus West announced that the official reveal will be on December 8th, which happens to be next Tuesday.
