Persona 5: The Royal will hit PS4 this year with new content and a new Phantom Thief

Atlus will release a new and expanded version of role-playing game Persona 5, titled Persona 5: The Royal, for PlayStation 4 in Japan on Oct. 31. The game will come to North America and other regions sometime in 2020, according to Atlus’ U.S. arm.

Persona 5: The Royal will add a number of new features to the game, including a new Phantom Thief named Kasumi Yoshizawa; a new confidant named Takuto Maruki who works as a counselor at Shujin Academy; and a new location to explore, Kichijoji. The game will touch on the students’ third semester at school.

In a teaser trailer posted to Atlus’ Japanese-language YouTube channel, we get a look at many of these new game elements, as well as others: a new dating location (an aquarium) and a new bar where players can enjoy games like pool and darts. There’s also new animation and a peek at new characters in action. (The 15-second English-language teaser trailer contains little more than a logo and a release window.)

According to the game’s Japanese website, Persona 5: The Royal will also include elements like selfies sent via the in-game messaging system, new events with twins Caroline and Justine, and new enemies to fight. The game will also support PlayStation 4 Pro, offering enhanced visuals.
