In a short teaser commercial debuted following today’s Persona 5 The Animation: Stars and Broadcast, there was a short scene of a new female character responding to the question, “What do you think of the Phantom Thieves.”
In Persona 5: The Royal, fans can look forward to play as a female character, contrary to the male character that everyone one must when the first version was released a couple of years ago.
More information about Persona 5: the Royal will be revealed on April 24 at the Persona Super Live Concert.
Here’s an overview of Persona 5, via a PlayStation Store listing:
