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!
So what’s new in this version of the game? So far we know:
- Joker has a grappling hook
- Battle system upgrade
- New character (Kasumi)
- New social link (Takuto)
- Third semester, includes New Years Shrine.
- New city area (Arcade)
- New date spot (Aquarium)
- Twins can go outside with you
- Memorable moments can be revisited via phone
- PlayStation 4 Pro graphic enhancements
- Darts (Shenmue, is that you?!)
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.
