Persona 5 is getting an officially licensed mobile spinoff. Developed by Chinese studio Perfect World Games–best known for notable MMOs like Final Fantasy Type-0 Online–the mobile game is currently known as Code Name: X, though it’s unclear if this will be the final name. A binary code that appears in the trailer translates to “Persona 5X,” but it appears that the game’s official name is Code Name: X for now.
Initially, Perfect World was coy about what series the game would fit into, calling it “a famous Japanese console game series.” However, it didn’t take long for Persona 5 fans to recognize the art style and aesthetics of Persona–it’s not exactly subtle. Additionally, the trailer shows locations that you might recognize from Persona 5, such as Iwai’s shop.
The trailer shows off a stylized Tokyo and a gray-haired woman performing some sort of hacking to track a shadowy figure, possibly a member of the Phantom Thieves. We don’t have much in the way of details for the game–or even confirmation that it will be available in English–but if you’re a Persona fan, this is a new spin-off that you’ll soon be able to sink your teeth into. Persona 5 Strikers, another spin-off that ended up being more of a sequel to the original game, released earlier this year, and its developers Koei Tecmo recently broke down the details of its creation. An enhanced version of the original game, Persona 5 Royal, came out last year to critical acclaim.
