A new Persona Mobile Game for iOS and Android, entitled Persona: The Phantom X, has been spotted on the Chinese social media site, Weibo.
As reported by Persona Central, a newly made official Weibo account for the game was launched earlier today and will be the first free-to-play mobile game that’s based on Persona 5 and will have item-based in-app purchases. It is being developed by Black Feather Studio under Perfect World Games.
Here’s an overview of the game according to Gematsu:
The game is focused on the theme of “desire,” and tells the story of students who have awakened to their “Personas,” facing difficulties together in an era of “low desire.” A mysterious old man with a long nose, a strange underwater room, an owl that can speak human language, and another world separate from reality—these seemingly unrelated things are all somehow connected.
Players will take on the role of a student, attending classes during the day and participating in activities such as baseball or watching movies with friends during their free time. After school, they can infiltrate the other world, which appears in the form of palaces with different themes, and use their Personas to engage in high-octane battles against enemies.
Character designer Shigenori Soejima has personally designed the protagonist for the game and his own Persona.
Details about the game are scarce for now, and the only other piece of information about it is that there will be a chance to play the game as early as March 29, presumably as an alpha or beta test.
