Persona 5 Royal is the beefed up version of Persona 5, sort-of like Golden is to Persona 4. As such, Royal comes with a bevy of enhancements and additions, including a new Phantom Thief member and Palace, 20 new songs, new story and social elements, a playable third semester, and of course a new opening cinematic along with a bunch of other cool stuff.
Like previous expansions to different Persona games, Royal is set to be a substantive update to the acclaimed Persona 5.
That’s just scratching the surface on what P5R is doing to make this a fresh experience. If you need to get up to speed on all the details that came out of the initial reveal.
Partner attacks are one of the many new elements in P5R and they’ve embraced absurdity on a new level; think the silliest heat moves from Yakuza with a hint of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure). Ann’s new character trailer revealed one between her and Morgana. They find themselves in a flower field as Ann is flattered by Morgana’s offering of roses. By the end of the trailer you see how it all brutally ends–Ann rains down on enemies with her submachine guns while Morgana tosses a bomb to finish them off.
