Persona games and spin-offs, name a more iconic duo.

Chinese giant Perfect World announced earlier today a new mobile game Code Name: X, which with its soundtrack and art style and pretty much everything else suggested it was a Persona 5 game, without actually coming out and saying it.

Which was weird, and led some initial viewers to think it was simply a rip-off. But Perfect World, perhaps aware of this, did later confirm with Niko Partners’ Daniel Ahmad that, yeah, it’s a Persona 5 game.

As of now, it’s only coming to China.
