Perfect World Entertainment is Developing a New Persona Mobile Game

Perfect World Entertainment is developing a new mobile game based on the Persona franchise, the publisher confirmed today.

Currently titled “Code Name: X,” the new game is set in Tokyo and appears to be set in the same world as Persona 5. Indeed, Gematsu quickly determined that the binary code in the trailer translates to “Persona 5X.”

Industry analyst Daniel Ahmad later reported on Twitter that Perfect World had confirmed it would be based on the Persona IP.

The trailer shows a mysterious hooded figure standing on a Tokyo rooftop, with the famous 109 Building in the background. Meanwhile, a hacker is shown uploading a program seemingly designed to take over one of the massive screens near Shibuya’s Scramble Crossing. All’s that missing are the words, “Hack the planet.”

You can watch the full trailer below.

Persona 5 has been popular territory for spinoffs of late. Recent releases include Persona 5 Strikers, which IGN awarded an 8 out of 10. No word on when Code Name: X will be released, only that it’s early in development is currently only confirmed for release in China.
