The previously announced Persona 5: The Phantom X has revealed a plethora of new information via official avenues and leaks compiled by several fans. Firstly, developer Perfect World Games, alongside Atlus, have announced that the game’s closed beta test will occur on March 29, 2023. It’s worth emphasizing that this game is still China-exclusive, with no confirmation on whether it will release in other regions.
Thanks to Persona Central for the information regarding the closed beta test. They also shared a translated message from the game’s producer discussing his excitement for this upcoming title.
So, with this beta test, fans have begun uncovering various assets, including new music tracks. As of now, three new vocal tracks by Lyn, the vocal artist for the other Persona 5 games, have been revealed.
Credit to @wudabed on Twitter for originally finding and uploading these songs and Tim Barry on YouTube for sharing the tracks on YouTube. However, it is worth noting that due to these songs not being shared via an official avenue such as Atlus or Perfect World Games themselves, they can still be unfinished.
The following galleries depict renders for new and familiar characters (via Persona Central):
Kotone Montagne + Persona Terpsichore
Seiji Shiratori + Persona Leucothea
Yukimi Fujikawa + Persona Styx
This is only a fraction of the new illustrations fans have found for the game. For the total amount, be sure to check out Persona Central’s coverage, with aid from @wudabed and the Persona subreddit. Gameplay information is also being uncovered.
Persona 5: The Phantom X is being developed by Perfect World Games, the same developers behind Tower of Fantasy. There is no word on a global or even a Japanese release for this title, but considering the scale of the Persona series in recent years, we’ll likely see it appear overseas at some point; it’s just a matter of when. The title features brand-new characters, though it seems familiar faces will return. Plus, the new characters also have Phantom Thief attire, so the roots of Persona 5 have been retained.
