In the trailer, you can hear a new theme song and watch gameplay from areas that were not included in the original version. Particularly, you can roam around Kichijoji,engage in new social scenes with new characters, visit an aquarium, and play pool and darts with the whole team. You can also see additional attack animations as well, specifically one featuring Haru and Morgana in a sort of partner attack similar to those added in Persona 4 Golden. Makoto can be seen throwing lightning-fast fists Kenshiro-style after Ryuji sets up the attack. It also appears that there is a new palace (or at least a new area to fight in) going off of where Haru and Morgana’s new attack was performed.
The new party member goes by the name of Yoshizawa Kasumi, and she’s also a transfer student at Shujin Academy who’s a gymnast. You can see her critical hit animation in the trailer for a brief moment as well. She’s going to play a major role and change up the original storyline; brief snippets of new cutscenes can be seen as well. It seems there’s another major character by the name of Takuto Maruki, who is a school counselor at Shujin and a new Confidant.
And if the original game wasn’t long enough for you, there will be a third semester in the storyline along with extra events towards the end of the game to help flesh out the conclusion. You can catch a glimpse of it, where the whole crew is celebrating New Year’s Day and Yusuke appears to be setting up the perfect group picture.
There is a lot more to breakdown, which you can expect from us soon. In the meantime, watch the new trailer for the Japanese version of Persona 5 Royal above.
