According to the review, Famitsu gave a summary of the upcoming game’s pros and cons:

Famitsu shared a generally positive feedback for Persona 5 Scramble. The members who reviewed the game claimed that those who enjoyed Persona 5 will appreciate the continuity expressed in the upcoming game’s story. With respect to the genre, players can expect that the battle system heavily focuses on cooperation. In addition to the battle system, Famitsu cited that the free time component showcases the stunning environments which blends well with the main story. It takes roughly 45 hours to complete the main story which is quite lengthy compared to other warrior style games which take around 15 to 20 hours to beat. Famitsu acknowledged that the pacing of the story was just right for the player to not get bored. Amidst the praises, Famitsu admitted to one pet-peeve, the interference of cutscenes, since these often broke the gameplay immersion.
