In opening shot of the trailer, she walks in wearing her Phantom Thief costume and kicks off a rapier-like sword into her grab. In next scene, she is in her student outfit and goes to a batting cage for practice with no luck so far.

Throughout her day-time activities of visiting gift shops to see a friend or stopping at a café to have a meal, she seems to be a socially awkward misfit. Of course, none of that makes this red-haired girl any less likable and makes her the next best girl.

Then we get to see her in combat following her awakening, where she is joined by her Persona, Cendrillon. Seconds into battle, she launches her All-Out Attack move, which involves ribbon wand and is called "Beauty is Devotion".

Persona 5: The Royal is scheduled to release on October 31, 2019 for Japan and on 2020 in Western regions. Aside from newly added features, P5R would include another new character Takuto Maruki, new plot and support for PlayStation 4 Pro.
