Persona 5 The Royal Launches October 2019 In Japan, 2020 Worldwide For PS4

At the end of the live concert special Persona Super Live 2019, a full trailer for the updated version of Persona 5, called Persona 5 The Royal, was shown. There was a ton of new stuff revealed including the new party member for the Phantom Thieves, additional areas for social activities, new attack animations, and a whole bunch more. As for release date, Persona 5 The Royal is set to launch in Japan on October 31, 2019 and worldwide sometime in 2020 exclusively for PlayStation 4.

In the trailer, you can hear a new theme song along with gameplay from areas that were not included in the original version. Particularly, you can roam around Kichijoji, visit an aquarium, engage in social scenes with new characters, and play pool and darts with the whole team. You can also see new attack animations, specifically one featuring Haru and Morgana in a sort of partner attack similar to those added in Persona 4 Golden. Makoto can be seen throwing lightning fast fists Kenshiro-style. It also appears that there is a new palace (or at least a new area to fight in) going off of where Haru and Morgana’s new attack was performed.

The new party member goes by the name of Yoshizawa Kasumi, and she’s also a transfer student who’s a sort of gymnast. You can see her critical hit animation in the trailer for a brief moment as well. She’s going to play a major role and change up the original storyline; brief snippets of new cutscenes can be seen as well.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
