Persona 5: The Royal Release Date

With new content and a Phantom Thief, Persona 5: The Royal will arrive for PS4 in Japan later this year.

Following an announcement of role-playing game Persona 5 character Joker coming to crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at The Game Awards 2018, there was a rumor for the title to come on Nintendo Switch.

Then P5R.jp domain was registered by developer/publisher Atlus and that rumored Switch theory was debunked upon revealing of Persona 5: The Royal for PlayStation 4. An extended trailer is dropped lately to announce official release date for the title
