Right after their big Persona 5: The Animation event, Atlus lifted the veil off of the mysterious game they’ve been teasing, Persona 5 R. It’s full title is Persona 5 The Royal and it’s teaser trailer showcases a new female character who’s also a student at Shujin Academy, where the Phantom Thieves also live their daily school lives. In the trailer, this new character is seemingly responding to someone asking for her thoughts on Joker and his gang, revealing that she’s not too approving of their actions.
Atlus hasn’t revealed anything further apart from April 24th being the date when more information will be available and that the game will release on PlayStation 4, dashing hopes for a Nintendo Switch release (nooooo!). All signs so far seem to point to The Royal being a type of Game of the Year edition that will add more content to Persona 5. The content will likely focus on this new mystery character but it’s anyone’s guess at this point. Hopefully, like with previous re-releases, Atlus will grace us with some new exciting stories to experience and maybe even a new Palace with more hearts to steal.
In the meantime, watch the teaser for yourselves and be sure to stay tuned to The Digital Fix for more information on Persona 5 The Royal.
