Good news for Persona fans who find themselves missing Persona 4’s investigation team while playing Persona 5’s Phantom Thieves – there’s a mod just for you on the way. The character replacement mod for Persona 5: Investigation Team is currently in the works, building an entirely new cast to play through the game’s storyline.
The project lead is a modder who tweets at @REALMadMax1960in collaboration with artist Century_. The mod builds on a now adjusted mod that inserted Persona 4 protagonist Yu via P5’s wild card. All updates are currently being posted to the Persona 5: Investigation Team Discord server.
The project leader has said that the goal is mainly to replace the UI and models for Persona 5, which will feature the Personas of the Persona 4 characters, adding that they may or may not also implement character animations. Updates on the Discord indicate that the project will only replace Voicelines if someone comes forward to help with that side of the development.
Welcome to P5:IT’s Twitter!

The Discord also lists which characters will be swapped over from the existing Persona 5 cast, with decisions based on personality as well as proportion. A number of early releases have been released on the game’s Discord, but the developers say they will only be released on GameBanana if they are in a playable state – meaning the game’s entire story should be fully playable.
