Recently, Atlus has released a trailer to introduce the latest game of the Persona franchise called Persona 5X Phantom of the Night. Accordingly, the game is also revealed to be the official side story of Persona 5. Previously, Persona 5X Phantom of the Night has been announced since 2021 and is named Code Name X.

Up to now, the Persona series has been around for 27 years with the first game Revelations: Persona on PS1 released in 1996 and more than 15 versions large and small. Persona then acted as an experimental branch of Atlus to create a more popular role-playing game Shin Megami Tensei, reaching more users. From here a hugely successful JRPG brand was born with many excellent versions on different applications.
The context of the Persona series of games are all set in the same world with many identical elements.

Players can also strengthen their squad by unlocking more Persona after each battle.
Persona (also known as personas or personae) is Latin for mask. This is a term in psychology that implies that every human being is more or less wearing a “mask” to hide his true personality to face and communicate with the world around him. To create a persona, a person must hide a part of his personality. That part of personality contains both the good and the bad, which is repressed by the ego and can never be recognized.
This is also the foundation for Atlus to create the Persona series of games. Persona and Shadow have now been formalized, bearing the same appearance and name heavily influenced by myths from many different cultures. The Personas are divided into different subclasses called arcanas, each of which corresponds to a card in the tarot deck.
Returning to Persona 5X Phantom of the Night, this game will be co-developed by Perfect World Games, Sega and Atlus. The content of this game will focus on the theme of “lust” when another group of high school students awaken their Persona, in an era when everyone is overwhelmed by low desires and motivations. From here the adventurous journey to take down the palaces like the ghost thieves of the player in the world of Persona officially begins.
