|This game is defunct.|
Do note the game no longer works at all without modifications. This is most likely due to the game's servers being shut down. As a result, further official developments with the game are unlikely to happen.
Persona O.A. was a free app for smartphones that was basically a companion app for the Persona 5 anime that aired in 2018. It closed down on August 30, 2019.

So many changes in so little time.

Early Build Screenshots
In the first release, v1.0.3, in assets\creator\img there are leftover screenshots from an earlier build of the game. With the exception of the Tokyo Map and Event Entry Page, these were removed in the next release, v1.0.6.
Unused Chat Bubbles
Unused chat bubbles for Mementos searching. Only the Phantom Thieves members' are used.
As seen in one of the screenshots above, there was originally a world map. It isn't present in the game at all, but assets of it still exist in assets\creator\img\S02.
The train map lines.
Locations with name card and image.
Found in assets\image\digital_content in the first release, a set of thumbnails for wallpapers, with three early versions and scrapped ones. This folder was removed in the next release, v1.0.6.
The early wallpaper calls Joker Hero, with his voice actor, Jun Fukuyama, and missing the copyright text.
This one is missing the copyright text.
The early one has a yellow flame instead of a white one and is missing copyright text.
These wallpapers are scrapped all together, but the first two's thumbnails still exist in assets\creator\img\common\wallpaper, even up to the final release, v1.2.10.
In the first public release, v1.0.3, there was a directory named assets\sample with subdirectories gacha_temp, gacha_temp2, loading, P5_eff, and translation. It seems to be a test folder for effects and gachapon features. This folder was removed in the next release, v1.0.6.
|Image of Ann||Image of Ryuji||Image of Joker||Mockup of images merged|
Three images of Joker, Ann, and Ryuji in stylized cutins.
A folder for testing the gachapon mechanic.
Artwork of Marie from Persona 4 Arena Ultimax.
gacha_temp2 is basically gacha_temp, just without the Marie and Makoto images.
Images that relate to a test loading screen.
A folder seemingly for effects.
A folder of unknown use.
A 30-second loop of Persona 5's Whims of Fate. It never plays anywhere in-game.
In the first release, an early version of the gachapon transition (opening the Velvet Room door); The background of it uses Shibuya. The next release, v1.0.6, changes it to the Velvet Room proper.
|Start Search Background||Config Menu Background|
This background that appears when you initiate Mementos Search, and later in v1.1.2, for the configuration menu is unlike anything from the source game. The protagonist, the people, and the simplicity of the school hallway looks similar to early development footage of the game, with the greyed-out NPCs with outlines.
These images have a hidden layer of data when the alpha channel is set to zero, as seen previously with another Atlus product.
|Original Wallpaper||Revised Wallpaper|
On March 14th, 2019, the official Persona 5 The Animation Twitter account (also in charge of the app's news) announced a set of White Day-themed wallpapers to unlock on this app, and this wallpaper was part of the set. This original wallpaper only lasted for less than 24 hours, as later, only as an in-game notification, was sent about the wallpaper in question, saying a bug was found where it wouldn't unlock, even if the prerequisites were met. The tweet about the White Day wallpapers was deleted some time later.
Then on March 26, 2019, the wallpaper was added back, but with a new visage featuring Crow's All Out Attack finisher. On the 28th, a news post was added in the app again, saying "the design specification has been changed because there was a misunderstanding with the wallpaper design of White’s Day CROW." As an apology, they distributed 200 Persona Points (in-game currency) and the wallpaper was given for free. This artwork of Crow is never seen anywhere else, but matches the style of the source game; It never showed up for its re-release, Persona 5 Royal, either. Also the artwork shows him as right-handed, when he is actually left-handed.
