Persona 5 Royal is an enhanced release of Atlus’ acclaimed JRPG Persona 5. One of the new features fan should look forward to is a new character named Kasumi Yoshizawa, a new confidant, new foes, PS4 Pro support and a host of new content that will make your second-time playing through the game feels like new.
Here’s an overview of what’s coming, via Atlus:
Just announced at the Persona Super Live P-Sound Street 2019 concert in Tokyo, Persona 5 Royal expands on the extraordinary world of Persona 5, introducing a host of new characters, gameplay features, and diving deeper into the personal lives, as well as the trials and tribulations, of the enigmatic (and exceedingly-stylish) Phantom Thieves. Players will even get to experience an all-new third semester at Shujin Academy that’s never been seen before!
In addition, a trailer was released today, which you can watch below, that shows more of the things that are coming to Persona 5 Royal.
RPG fans rejoice! Uncover the picaresque story of a young team of phantom thieves in this latest addition to the critically acclaimed Persona series.

After school, use your Metaverse Navigator smartphone app to infiltrate Palaces–surreal worlds created from the hearts of corrupt adults–and slip away to your double life as a phantom thief. With the power of Persona, make these criminals have a change of heart by stealing the Treasure of their distorted desires. Join your new friends in the fight to reform society with your own sense of justice!
