We’ve had Persona 5, we’ve had Persona 5 Royale, we’ve had Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight and in addition Persona 5 Strikers. That’s a lot of Persona 5, however Sega and Atlus determine we will deal with much more, as a result of one other spinoff has simply been introduced, this one referred to as Persona: Phantom of the Night time.
As Persona Central have translated, this one—with a shortened title of P5X—is a cellular sport being launched by Chinese language firm Good World Video games. Earlier than you go switching off at that like I nearly did, although, simply…take a look at this trailer:
And this one, which options some gameplay:
I believe these clips look cool as hell. And the little owl! And everybody’s character designs! They’re excellent (long-time collection designer Shigenori Soejima labored on the primary character and owl sidekick, which might clarify that). This footage clearly seems cool as hell as a result of it seems similar to the Persona 5 we performed on consoles/PC, right down to the combo of exploration/classwork and turn-based fight, however it doesn’t actually appear to indicate what sort of gacha, microtransaction or fee techniques are going to be in place, which in fact could possibly be an absolute dealbreaker. Guess we’ll must see how that each one works when the sport’s first public take a look at takes place on March 29.
You play a highschool pupil whose dad and mom are “travelling overseas”, leaving you residence alone to juggle going to highschool through the day and preventing demons by evening, the trailer suggesting the story goes to observe a really comparable path as the primary sport, simply with a contemporary group of children, teammates and attainable social hyperlinks (although Joker and crew do make an look based mostly on a screenshot from the official web site).
If you wish to see some extra of the wonderful character design work, you’ll be able to take a look at the sport’s official web site (although you’ll must translate it because it’s all in Chinese language).
