Atlus has now released the opening movie for the upcoming Persona 5 Royal. They have also confirmed that they will also have Persona 5 Royal playable at the SEGA / Atlus booth at this year’s Tokyo Game Show 2019 from September 12 through the 15th.

SEGA has finally updated their Tokyo Game Show 2019 website revealing its full line-up for the upcoming event. While the event already had some heavy hitters before, but now they have even more games including Yakuza 7, Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz HD and Hatsune Miku: Project Diva MegaMix.

Atlus Japan had a full blown event to show off the latest update for Persona 5, being called Persona 5 Royal. The teaser above doesn’t show off any of the new footage, that on the other hand is teasing the western release of Persona 5 Royal in the West. Expect it sometime in 2020!

If you waited this long to play Persona 5, there is no doubt you should be keeping an eye on this release. The original Persona 5 was jam packed with things to do, explore and a hecka of a fun JRPG. As for people that did play the original release, are you going to double dip on this one? Personally, can’t wait to see what new tracks this version has and the music alone is worth playing through the game again.
