Persona 5: The Royal Teaser

Atlus released a new teaser trailer of their upcoming role-playing game Persona 5: The Royal for PS4 consoles.

Back in December 2018, role-playing game Persona 5 suddenly started getting traction with the inclusion of its character Joker to crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and a speculation of the title coming to Nintendo Switch ensues.

Fans then literally lose their minds upon noticing that developer/publisher Atlus have registered P5R.jp domain, knowing something is coming up. Recently, they come up with a new video revealing the title being Persona 5: The Royal.

The animated teaser trailer above heralds a new RPG title that is a follow up to P5 and coming exclusively to PlayStation 4. Apparently, there will be a new playable female character that is likely to take lead in upcoming Persona spin-off.

A voice asks the woman that what she thinks of the secret group of "Phantom Thieves" and in response, she states that while helping people is good, these vigilantes are not actually helping people because their method doesn't work.

Immediately dismissive of the established protagonists, this mysterious woman sure is packing some surprises. However, at least we know now that for P5R is not going to be a simple re-release of original P5 for Nintendo or Sony console.

Atlus promised to deliver more information on Persona 5: The Royal at a two-day long Persona Super Live concert in Tokyo next month, on April 24. Ultimately, what they previously promised have turned out to be an announcement of another announcement.

According to a recent rumor from Twitter, Atlus will be releasing Persona 5 S for Nintendo Switch and PS4 on fall 2019.

A number of rumors regarding Persona role-playing video game series start popping over the internet following the announcement of Joker from Persona 5 being included in crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at The Game Awards 2018.

Fans have been long speculating about P5 to arrive on Nintendo Switch at anytime this year and in one way or another, a newly surfaced rumor from a reliable source of leaked news confirms of a new Persona game for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4.

Joker of P5 is also confirmed to show up in Catherine: Full Body, a remastered version of acclaimed 2011 puzzle platformer. This was followed by a surprise reveal of Persona 5 R when developer/publisher Atlus registered a domain P5R.jp.

Going by the name Mr. Ohya, the source confirms of Persona 5 S for Switch on Twitter and fanning the flame of fan expectation.

Ahead of its official reveal, P5R was leaked by the same source and shortly before posting the Tweet above, the same account also states that Atlus is considering an HD remake of Persona 3, which was originally released on PlayStation 2.

Players are to get an official confirmation of some sort before May and a scheduled release date would likely to be set for this autumn. Even though Persona 5 R is deemed to be a similar version to Person 5 S, the former is meant to launch on PS4.

Atlus has yet to confirm whether P5R is a spin-off title like Persona 4 Golden, which was a port for PlayStation Vita but it was an extended version of the PS2 title with a new character named Marie added to the story as well.

Players would have to wait a few more months until May to find out if their beloved RPG franchise is really stepping into the Nintendo next-gen handheld console and Persona 5 fans would have a blast if it really turns out to be true.

Persona 5 R Revealed

Developer Atlus reveals Persona 5 R as their next project for 2019 but says nothing about a Nintendo Switch version.

At The Game Awards 2018, immediately after the announcement of the Joker of role-playing game Persona 5 being added to crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, fans coming theorizing that the game may see a Nintendo Switch version release.

Then developer/publisher Atlus proceeded registrations for P5R.jp domain to fan the flame until Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai took a trip to their HQ. Right before stepping into 2019, they teased for a new project in works.

Just have a look at this recently dropped trailer on YouTube by the company which doesn't tell much other than playing over the mystery of what comes next.

Yup, that's it. Nothing much but a date for next year following the PlayStation logo over its iconic blue screen and then comes the line "Take Your Heart" a on a red background with a voiceover before revealing the date to be just March 2019.

Aside from clearly hinting that they are working on something, the developers didn't say much for now and chose to keep everyone in the dark. The trailer also confirmed that the domain that was registered earlier is activated and belong to this new project now.

However, the meaning behind that "R" still remains a mystery to all and we cannot help but wonder it is a nod to "Remake" or "Remaster" for Nintendo Switch maybe? We don't know that for certain but our bet is fans of the handheld console would wish it was.

Then again, why would a port for Switch would then show up with a PlayStation logo in the first place? Since the original Persona 5 was released on both PS3 and PS4, a release on the Sony console shouldn't be much surprising at all. We all have to wait until March 2019 is here.

Joker, the protagonist from the popular JRPG title will be a playable character and his involvement to the fray was announced back in September 2018 along with a few other related contents and the gameplay video was meant to display his playing style.

Whereas we usually see Vincent trying to climb his way to the top of never-ending series of towered blocks, the Phantom Thief makes it look easier with precision and his quick speed, which make it seems like he is meant for solving this sort of haunted puzzles.

Catherine: Full Body adds a brand-new character Rin to cause a friction between two other main characters, Catherine and Katherine. She is a pianist from Stray Sheep and players can choose from 11 different vocals to be her voice in the Japanese release.

Aside from teasing his appearance, Atlus never revealed whether the game will arrive on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita worldwide same time as they will on Japan or would come at a later date. Same can be said about the arrival of Joker in a DLC when the game finally launches.

Persona 5 Free Swimsuit DLC

For those who love dressing up Barbies, you can now do this at the same time playing a role-playing social simulation game. Part of its pieces of DLC available for Persona 5, developer studio Atlus has rolled out a "Swimsuit DLC" as a bonus for the players that can be downloaded free of charge. Yes, you saw that right, free of charge.

Persona 5 Swimsuit DLC

This DLC allows you dress some of the characters and lets you travel with them as your team in revealing sexy summer outfits and exploring places. There are also a number of outfits you can choose, like the school uniform or regular outfits. I guess you will be looking forward to dressing your favourite characters in a Catherine kind of way ad we are sorry to inform you that, that specific outfit is yet to be rolled out. Guess they are keeping the best for later.

However, Persona 5‘s free swimsuit costume can only be enjoyed in both North America and Europe regions, because that is where it can be downloaded. So, it is quite sad for the fans from other regions. Persona 5‘s free swimsuit costumes aren’t the only thing that comes with the update. It also features a lot of paid DLC that includes stuffs inspired by Shin Megami Tensei IV and Persona 4 spin-offs.

This is a game you will really enjoy even if you haven't played all of its previous installments. From dressing up characters in a sexy revealing outfit, to school uniform and regular outfit to wandering off the street of Tokyo and other interesting stuff you cannot wait to get when you play the game. Keep your fingers crossed. Persona 5 has been released worldwide on April 4, 2017 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
