Now, the Japanese company has announced Persona 5: Phantom of the Nighta new spin off of the popular JRPG.
We have known for some time that Atlus partnered with Chinese company Perfect World Games to work on some kind of mobile gameToday we know that this title will be a new spin off of Persona 5. Let’s remember that the mobile market is one of the most important in the Asian market.
New story within the Persona 5 universe
This Persona 5: Phantom of the Night, previously known as the P5X project, seems to be nothing more nor less than a free to play version of the Persona 5 mobile formula. That is to say its aesthetic and playable proposal will be almost identical to that of the original gameonly that it will have a new cast of characters and a new story within the Persona 5 universe. Take a look (via Center Person):
In playable matter, we see that the protagonist of this spin off maintains that double life of a student by day and a ghost by night, adapting the popular Persona 5 social simulation formula to a mobile game. You can stay with classmates or participate in pastimes of all kinds. Meanwhile, it seems the turn-based RPG combat system It also continues with hardly any changes compared to the original game.
Persona 5: Phantom of the Night does not seem to have a specific launch window, but it would have a first beta next March 29although for the moment its arrival in the west has not been confirmed. It would not be the first time that this type of Asian mobile games have not reached our country, or they do so after a few years. In fact, it wasn’t until the arrival of Persona 5 Royal that the Atlus series came to our country localized into Spanish.
