Sit down and buckle your seatbelt for 30 minutes of Persona 5: The Phantom X gameplay. Not only do we get a closer look at the featured characters in the new mobile game, but we also get to see further aspects of the game, such as the action-packed combat!
We first reported the announcement of the Persona 5 gacha game not too long ago, so we’re happy to see that the game’s development team is providing us with more information so soon after the initial news.
A Brand-New Persona 5 Adventure
Now, if you’re familiar with Persona 5, you’ll know that it has iconic imagery, sound design, and art direction. If you take a look at the Persona 5: The Phantom X gameplay, you’ll spot quite a few familiar touches throughout. We’re not the only ones who are spotting the similarities between the original title and this brand-new entry in the franchise.
In fact, it’s almost like this mobile game is a direct successor from Persona 5 Royal and Strikers. The entire art direction is exactly the same as these titles with the only difference being the different cast of main characters and the fact that it’s a mobile gacha.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with that though, especially considering how successful Persona 5 is in general. It’s certainly a good starting point for brand-new fans despite the fact that Persona is a long-running franchise, and is actually a spin-off of the Shin Megami Tensei series.
The Return of the Joker
We’re happy to see returning faces in the Persona 5: The Phantom X gameplay preview, with familiar Shadows and the main protagonist of Persona 5, Joker, appearing in the party during a clip of combat. Honestly, it’s looking like this gacha RPG is going to be a fantastic entry in the series and will certainly open up the franchise to more players.
Additionally, we initially thought that it was a mobile-only game, but it’s due to come out on PC too! This is a brilliant move for the development team as this will definitely broaden the horizon for the game.
