Is there a release date for Persona 5X: Phantom of the Night?
Currently, there is no confirmed release date for Persona 5X: Phantom of the Night. As soon as an official date is confirmed, we’ll be sure to update this page.
A playtest is available for players in China to sign-up for, however, which will begin on March 29, 2023.
What platforms will Persona 5X be on?
Persona 5X will be available exclusively on mobile for iOS and Android users.
The game’s style and gameplay will be very similar to the console editions of Persona 5 but its user experience will be tailored for mobile players.
Will Persona 5X be free-to-play?
Unlike other games in the Persona franchise, Persona 5X will be free-to-play but will feature microtransactions.
At the time of writing, there are no confirmed details about what microtransactions the game will include but given the nature of the gameplay, our best guess is that these could potentially involve Persona that can be equipped in combat or cosmetic items to change the look of your party members.

Persona 5X was announced alongside official concept and gameplay trailers that showcased a new group of Phantom Thieves, as well as an Owl-inspired mascot who will likely fill the advisor role that the black cat Morgana did in the original game.

Are there any gameplay details?
As displayed in the gameplay trailer, much like Persona 5 on console, the mobile game will split players’ time between a normal high-school life and exploring palaces with the Phantom Thieves where you’ll engage in turn-based combat.
Outside of combat and exploration, players will be able to spend their free time participating in various activities including visiting the batting cages, going to the gym, studying, or watching movies. Both style and gameplay-wise, it looks to be extremely similar to the original games, with a number of fresh faces for players to interact with.
