While Japanese fans already have their hands on the much-anticipated Persona 5 Royal since this October, Western fans still have to wait for Spring 2020 for its worldwide release. Fortunately for P5 fans, Atlus is set to make announcements for the Western market! On November 21, the gaming company’s official Twitter and Facebook accounts announced that they are planning to release new details on the Western release of Persona 5 Royal on December 3.
Check out the teaser announcement below:
Since that day, Atlus has been running a daily countdown in their social media accounts, hyping up the much-awaited details. Is it a release date (hopefully!) Special launch editions? We’ll just have to wait to find out!
Besides adding in new social features and activities, the game also features new character Kasumi Yoshizawa (who is voiced by Sora Amamiya). This is how she is described on the game’s official website:
“A new girl who’s just transferred into Shujin Academy the same spring the protagonist transferred there. Since the age of junior high, she’s got excellent score as an acrobatic contestant, and she is expecting the future days at Shujin Academy. She loves the protagonist, but she seems to dislike the stuff about the Phantom Thieves… ? Foe, or ally — Please look forward to more upcoming reports.”
In a previous trailer, she was revealed to be a Persona user, wielding a persona named Cendrillon.
The game will be adding in the Phantom Thieves’ untold third semester in Shujin Academy. A new confidant character named Takuto Maruki (voiced by Satoshi Hino) was also added. He is a part-time school counselor at Shujin, and his arcana is Le Consultant. Other new features in the game include new locations in the map, new social activities, Status Assist, more songs, and enhanced graphics with PlayStation 4 Pro support.
