The upcoming expansion is set to add tons of new features to the already enduring JRPG experience. While the new Confidant of Takuto Maruki has already been confirmed, there’s also a brand new palace to infiltrate and conquer, a new location in Kichijoji to explore and perform new activities and shop at new stores along with the entire third semester to play through, which was previously unplayable in the base version of the game.
Persona 5 Royal will add to the entire experience of the original Persona 5 story, changing aspects and scenarios from nearly the very beginning of the story. Atlus has been hyping up the upcoming expansion with a flurry of new trailers, gameplay snippets, a video series titled “Morgana’s Report” which showcases new features and weekly new details on what fans can expect in the massive add-on.
The original Persona 5 game had players fill the role of Joker, the leader of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts – a gang of high school teenagers all with their own personal struggles in life. The Phantom Thieves explore “Palaces” which are disturbed thoughts manifested into an alternate reality from the minds of crooked adults. The Phantom Thieves steal their “hearts” from the palace in order to change their vile ways.
Persona 5 Royal has been slated to release in Japan on October 31, 2019 while Atlus has just recently revealed that the west version of Persona 5 Royal is set to launch sometime in the spring of 2020.
