Atlus revealed today that a Persona 5 Royal announcement is set for December 3 in North America at 9:00AM PT.
According to the official website, a countdown to when “the truth will be revealed” has been added. It’s very possible that Atlus will be announcing the release date on December 3 as the game has been out in Japan for quite some time.
Per the calling card from the Phantom Thieves, the group of vigilantes that the protagonist belongs to in Persona 5 Royal says:
To all Phantom Thieves in the making in the west:
You have 12 days until we expose the truth of Persona 5 Royal once and for all.
Below is the brief overview released by Atlus several months ago:
