Perfect World Games has announced (via Gematsu) Persona 5: The Phantom X for iOS and Android. Persona 5: The Phantom X is a brand new mobile game based on the world of Persona 5. It is set in Tokyo featuring an original story of new phantom thieves. If you’ve not played Persona 5 yet, it was ported to all current platforms as of October 2022. Read Shaun’s review of the Switch version here. The announcement goes on to say that Persona 5: The Phantom X will follow the aesthetic of original IP with changes made to the playstyle and interface for mobile. Watch the gameplay trailer via Gematsu on YouTube below:
Check out the official website here. As of now, Persona 5: The Phantom X doesn’t have a confirmed release date or Western release. It will be a free to play game with in app purchases and a playtest is planned for March 29 in China. More details are on the official website. I adore Persona 5 and it is surprising that it has taken so long for someone to work with Atlus on a mobile game based on it. We’ve had collaborations with many other games over the years, but Persona 5: The Phantom X is a full-fledged mobile game based on Persona 5. It is going to be interesting to see whether this gets a global release or not, and how it ends up doing on mobile in general. Have you played Persona 5 Royal yet and what do you think of Persona 5: The Phantom X?
