Atlus Officially Reveals Persona 5 The Royal, Trailer Features A New Character

Atlus has officially revealed Persona 5 The Royal, a new RPG coming to the PS4. The trailer features a new woman who seems to be the playable character. The game was originally teased as Persona 5 R.

The official Persona 5 website has been updated and now features the new trailer as well as some new information about the game.

More news will be announced during the “Persona Super Live: P-Sound Street 2019: Welcome to No. Q Theatre” concert on April 24, 2019.


  • It’s not really a reveal though, is it? It’s an announcement that they’re making an announcement in a month.

    • Well, its a reveal that all the people that insisted R was for Ruby were completely wrong.

  • So I have persona 5 and haven’t gotten around to playing it…. so hopefully theres an upgrade option for the original game

    • If it is actually a new game as the article suggests, then I wouldn’t expect an upgrade option. While they have done enhanced editions of previous games, that’s usually been for done for ports to new platforms.

      • Yeah I wasnt 100% sure if it was its own game or an upgrade, I seen that it may have a new female character as the main, but the portable version of persona 3 did that too, so I was still unsure. I hope its a new game so I can not feel too bad about putting off p5 all this time

    • We don’t know what this is yet, just that it’s on PS4, but IMO it’s pretty likely that there will be an upgrade option.

      If it is an expanded re-release (along the lines of Persona 4 Golden) maybe with a female protagonist option (eg P3P) they would probably try to re-sell it, since the additional content ends up being sprinkled throughout the game and is much harder to patch in. But since it’s on PS4 and currently looks like it might be staying exclusive, trying to re-sell an expanded version of the game to an audience that largely already owns it is an uphill battle. It’d be different if it was also coming to Switch and/or PC, but PS4-only they’d be cutting off too much of the market if they didn’t offer an upgrade path IMO.

      However based off the digging that people have done on the teaser, what seems more likely is that it’s some kind of quasi-sequel or extra chapter, along the lines of Persona 3 FES. If that’s what it ends up being, there’s an even better chance they’d offer the extra content as effectively DLC.

  • Would be nice, it’s easier to play on PC and still have TV running then just be forced to console. But highly unlikely, although a few games have been released on both, look how long it took Final Fantasy to be converted. (FF XII was by far the longest as far as I can remember to be released on PC, and only after they’d converted to PS4)
