Atlus and Sega announce another Persona 5 collaboration

Persona 5 Animation 1

Atlus and Sega have announced that Persona 5's Phantom Thieves will be collaborating with another game.

Famitsu (thanks, PersonaCentral) reports that Atlus and Sega have announced a collaboration between Persona 5 and Kyoutou Kotoba RPG: Kotodaman. The collaboration will be held in March 2019, and will feature popular characters from Atlus’ fifth instalment in the Persona series.

Kyoutou Kotoba RPG: Kotodaman is an iOS/Android “world matching RPG” that allows 1-4 players. With it being a free game that charges for items, it’s probably safe to assume that the Phantom Thieves will be playable characters for a fee.

More details will be officially announced at a later date. This is the second collaboration Atlus and Sega have announced for Persona 5. At Geoff Keighley’s Game Awards, The Phantom Thieves’ leader Joker was announced as DLC for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, sparking heavy rumours that Persona 5 R will join the Nintendo Switch. Joker and The Phantom Thieves will also be a part of Catherine: Full Body.

In other Persona 5 news, Atlus are likely to reveal Persona 5 R’s release date at Sega Fes 2019, and Funko has revealed a set of Phantom Thieves Pop! Figures that are absolutely breath-taking. An Australian Classification rating has also hinted at Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth coming to the west and joining the Nintendo Switch, and there’s an amazing “Phan” game the community can download and play for free.
