After another fantastic Persona Super Live concert, and with the new Famitsu issue out, we have some more information on the upcoming Persona 5 The Royal! And what a lot of information there is, with plenty of new features being added, including two brand new characters! Check out the hefty trailer below:
The new key art for Persona 5 The Royal is really stunning!
Now, on to some new features!
CV: Sora Amamiya
A beautiful girl who entered Shujin Academy the same spring the protagonist transferred there. She’s won awards for rhythmic gymnastics since middle school, and Shujin Academy has high hopes for her future. She likes the protagonist, but rejects the Phantom Thieves. Will she turn out to be an ally or an enemy?
CV: Satoshi Hino
A part-time school counsellor that was appointed to Shujin Academy after the April incident with a certain teacher. The students like him, as he’s a good listener and gives good advice.
Another big new point is the addition of the third term, which will tell stories left untold in Persona 5 originally. This includes new events, such as the first shrine visit of the new year. New additions to your student life include Kichijoji, another neighbourhood in Tokyo to explore. New date spots are also available, such as the aquarium.
As well as peaceful student life, there are new additions to your thrilling life as a Phantom Thief! These come in the form of new dungeon elements, such as strange events, stronger enemies, and new mechanics for Mementos as well as the Palaces.
There’s an official website too, so we’ll be keeping our eye on that!
