The Persona series has seen plenty of spin-offs to its name, especially with its mainstream popularity deriving from its latest mainline entry of Persona 5. Now joining the likes of the Nintendo 3DS exclusive dungeon crawling Persona Q titles, dance/rhythm line of Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight, Persona 4: Dancing All Night and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight and the musou styled Persona 5 Strikers, Persona 5: The Phantom X has been announced this year.

Will Persona 5 Phantom of the Night have Microtransactions?

Persona 5: Phantom X (Phantom of the Night) is going to be exclusive to mobile devices. The title is developed by Black Wings Game Studio and published by Perfect World Game, a Chinese company. While this could raise a few eyebrow immediately, the upcoming game has had its series publisher, Atlus, closely on board its development, as well as character designer Shigenori Soejima also having a hand in the new characters’ designs.

The legitimacy of it all is really apparent, especially from the initial illustrations and screenshots we currently have that perfectly captures the style and polish of the mainline titles. But since it has been heavily speculated to be free to play, one can only expect that microtransactions will certainly be a factor. While we do not have a definitive answer as of now, March 29 will be the time to confirm our suspicions once its initial public test releases in China then.

We hope you look forward to the game like us. Be sure to check out our other Persona coverage for any further assistance with the series and its newest ports to console platforms.
