If recent leaks are to be believed, Atlus is gearing up to announce two new Persona games in the coming days with a full-fledged Persona 3 remake titled Persona 3 Reload, and a mysterious new Persona 5 spinoff, called Persona 5 T. As it turns out, Atlus recently accidentally uploaded the reveal trailers for both games to its Instagram page, confirming that both announcements are indeed imminent, and coming at the upcoming Xbox Games Showcase.
So what exactly is Persona 5 T? Called Persona 5 Tactica, is is – you guessed it – a tactics game. The title employs turn-based grid combat in vein of XCOM, and features a chibi-esque art style, which is quite a fresh take for a game in the Persona 5 subseries. Check out the announcement trailer below, via @junoharuto on Twitter.
As per the leaked trailer, Persona 5 Tactica is due out on November 17. What with this being an Xbox Games Showcase announcement trailer, the only platforms mentioned are Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC, though presumably, PS5 and PS4 (and maybe the Switch) will also be included. The game will also be available via Game Pass at launch.
