Rumor: Persona 5: The Phantom X May Get Localized After All

A prominent Sega leaker has claimed that the upcoming Persona 5: The Phantom X mobile game may be getting a localization and will be released in the West after all. Persona 5: The Phantom X is an upcoming mobile phone and PC gacha spin-off of the Persona franchise. It is being developed by Black Wings Game Studio and will be published by Perfect World Games, with oversight from Atlus. Despite it being originally set to release exclusively in China, fans outside the demographic have been asking for an international release.

The outcry for an international release of Persona 5: The Phantom X outside of China has been pretty fervent ever since the game's reveal, its reception even surprising its director. According to Atlus insider Midori, there are plans to release the game in the West.

Previously, Midori claimed that Persona 5: The Phantom X was approved for a global release outside of China, launching in Korea and Japan. In a recent tweet, Midori stated that Persona 5: The Phantom X will be getting a closed beta test and launch for not only Japan but also Western regions. She also revealed that an English version of Persona 5: The Phantom X for a US launch is being developed, with other regions in mind as well. Midori also mentioned that this will be revealed slowly and will "move forward one step at a time." No release window has been set for this game yet other than 2024.

Persona 5: The Phantom X had its third beta test this past January, which gave fans access to a brief segment of the game. This includes a brief look at some of the new Phantom Idols introduced in Persona 5: The Phantom X, along with confirming the setting of it being an alternate timeline parallel to the original game. An unknown event has linked the two timelines together, as Wonder is set to work with or even confront Joker from the Phantom Thieves in The Phantom X.

Midori has been a reliable leaker of past Atlus projects so far, as she has confirmed the existence of games like Persona 3 Reload, Persona 5 Tactica, and the recently revealed Shin Megami Tensei 5: Vengeance before their official announcements. More recent claims from Midori involving the Persona franchise include possible remakes of the first two Persona games and Persona 4, a brand-new Shin Megami Tensei title, and more Persona spin-offs. While Midori has had an accurate track record so far, fans should still take this rumor with a grain of salt until either Perfect World Games or Atlus provides more information about Persona 5: The Phantom X.
