Unlike the mainline Persona 5, Scramble has its characters fighting waves of enemy Shadows in real-time action, as each character wields their weapons and Persona in battle. The player controls one of up to four different characters, and can switch between them at any time.
However, like in Persona 5, players will be able to temporarily pause the action to cast spells or perform attacks with their Persona. In Joker's case, he can even swap Personas to match the situation, just as in the original game. All player characters will have separate bars for HP (Health) and SP (Mana), and can level up their stats by earning experience points through battle.
Also like in Persona 5, Joker can negotiate with enemy Shadows and gain their Persona, and even use Fusion to create a new Persona from two existing Personas.
