Persona 5 The Royal Is on the Way
Developer Atlus just announced Persona 5 The Royal along with its trailer. The game is set to release for the PlayStation 4, although the exact date has yet to be determined. The developer said that more information on the game will be revealed during the live concert event Persona Super Live 2019 on April 24.
The trailer focuses on a new female character enrolled at Shujin Academy along with most of the main cast. It seems likely that this new character will be the focus of the game’s new content.
Here’s an excerpt from our review of Persona 5:
“Things aren’t all perfect, even for a tour-de-force like this. Honestly, the dialogue-heavy gameplay drags on at times, with conversations that could have been a lot shorter, and long periods where you are just watching and reading instead of playing. Persona 5 also seems to have more translation quirks than previous iterations as well, and there is the odd strangely-worded sentence that stands out. Oh, and Atlus is still as stingy with Save Points as ever, so be prepared to lose some playtime once in a while if you need to quit in a hurry.”
“But taken as a whole, Persona 5 is an incredible gaming experience. With so much to do, so many elements all perfectly balanced and perfected, it’s a showcase of great game design. After 10 years, the wait has been well worth it, and Persona 5 has somehow exceeded our expectations and shown us once again why this is the best JRPG series of all time.”
