We’ve had Persona 5, we’ve had Persona 5 Royale, we’ve had Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight and in addition Persona 5 Strikers. That’s a lot of Persona 5, however Sega and Atlus determine we are able to deal with much more, as a result of one other spinoff has simply been introduced, this one referred to as Persona: Phantom of the Evening.

If you wish to see some extra of the wonderful character design work, you’ll be able to try the sport’s official website (although you’ll must translate it because it’s all in Chinese language).
