Persona 5: The Royal Introduces Kasumi Yoshizawa

Newest Phantom Thief member, Yoshizawa Kasumi is introduced in brand-new Persona 5: The Royal trailer.

To deliver an enhanced port version of their critically acclaimed role-playing game Persona 5 from 2016, developer/publisher Atlus has come up with upcoming Persona 5: The Royal and announced it for PlayStation 4 as an exclusive title.

Other than revealing little details about P5R, a mysterious female playable character is teased through an animated trailer. Today, a brand-new video introduces her as Yoshizawa Kasumi, new member of "Phantom Thieves".

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.

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

Another major character Takuto Maruki joins as a counselor and new Confidant. There is a new location, Kichijoji to explore aside from an aquarium dating site. Players can also hang out together at Penguin Sniper game bar playing pool and darts to pass time.

Persona 5: The Royal would likely to play with original storyline of P5 that largely focuses on Joker and Goro Akechi. New events, in-game selfie feature, a human version of Morgana, social activities and other aspects are to be included in this PS4-exclusive as well.

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.

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.
