Atlus provided yet another character trailer for Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, this time showcasing Sophia, the girl with the red pig-tails — only, she’s not your average girl.

Sophia, code-named Sophie, is the AI program that lives in the protagonist’s phone. It’s not completely clear who she is or how she came to be, or if she’s the one in charge of the Metaverse Nav app from Persona 5

Although she lost her memories and can be a little difficult to understand, she is very reliable in battle, acting as a healer and a skilled fighter using Bless skills. What she doesn’t use, though, is a Persona. Sophie uses things called Pythos to activate skills that are identical to what Personas can use.

Despite getting a lengthy demonstration video and knowing Persona 5 Scramble is meant to be Persona 5‘s direct sequel, we still don’t know all that much about the game’s story and why Palaces are reappearing all across Japan.

Japanese PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch players will figure out the mystery on February 20, 2020. Those of us in the West will have to wait until sometime later to get our hands on the game.
