Chinese publisher Perfect World is set to bring popular JRPG franchise Persona to mobile devices.
As detailed in Niko Partners senior analyst Daniel Ahmad's tweet, the game is for smartphones only and is currently known as Code Name: X.
"Perfect World says that they are creating an original mobile game adaptation of a famous Japanese console RPG series that has sold over 10 million units worldwide," Ahmad said.
He then went on to clarify that Perfect World had indeed confirmed to him that it is a Persona title that it is working on.
