The trailer shows a hooded figure looking out from a rooftop in Tokyo, with the famous 109 building in the background. Meanwhile, a hacker prepares a program that seems designed to take control of one of the large screens of the famous Shibuya crossing.

Persona 5 is already a well-known territory for spinoffs. Among them are Persona 5 Strikers, which IGN awarded an 8 out of 10. It has not been said when Code Name: X will be released, it is still in early development … and at the moment it is only talking about the Chinese market.
