The producer of PersonKazuhisa Wada, revealed that Atlus is working on making new ports, remakes and spin-offs dedicated to seriesin order to further increase the popularity of the franchise among fans.
The announcement of Persona 5: The Phantom X for iOS and Android probably falls within the scope of this strategy, although Wada has clarified that at the moment he cannot reveal yet how many and which projects are in the pipeline.
