Perfect World Games showed off some of the party members who will be in Persona 5: The Phantom X. Previously, it revealed three of the main characters, along with their Velvet Room assistant, Merope. The new members of the group are people who have some sort of notable public identity and use the power of Persona II to fight the Shadows. (Thank you, center person!)

The new characters are:

  • Monte Kotone (Terpsicore)
  • Seiji Shirajima (Leucotea)
  • Yuki Fujikawa (remain)

Like Persona 3, the Personae of these characters are inspired by Greek mythology. This is in contrast to the three Perfect World previously appeared in. For reference, the others are Jánošík (a Slovak Robin Hood figure), Rob Roy (Scottish outlaw and folk hero), and Awilda (female pirate). It is unknown what “Persona II” is and how it differs from normal Personae.

Soejima, who designed the characters for the original Persona 5 games, is also the designer for this one. Persona 5: The Phantom X appears to be a mobile spin-off of Persona 5, with a new cast and development studio. Old V, who is the game’s producer, said Perfect World created P5X to bring the charm of Persona 5 to more gamers through a mobile platform.

Persona 5: The Phantom X is in development for mobile devices. A closed beta will take place from March 29 to March 31, 2023.
