Persona 5 Royal Coming in 2020 With New Characters and a Third Semester

Persona 5 Royal, an expanded re-release of Persona 5, will launch later this year in Japan, with a Western release due in 2020.

The announcement was conducted in Japanese, but Twitter user Mystic, a reliable source of Persona news, has offered translated details in a series of tweets.

This new version, announced by developer Atlus today, features a substantial set of new additions that expand on a variety of Persona 5’s features. The most significant is a new semester of school to play though, which – presumably – will add a fair few more hours of story to the game.

The game has been overhauled for PS4 Pro, with graphics upgraded to 4K resolution. There are also UI enhancements and quality of life changes, including a new menu dedicated to confidants and stats.

Atlus will reveal more about Persona 5 Royal on May 9, but if you’re eager for more Persona 5 now, you could always check out Joker in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, or even our review of the original version.

Matt Purslow is IGN UK’s News and Entertainment Writer, and will probably ditch his half-complete Persona 5 save and wait for this version instead. You can follow him on Twitter.
