One of the best games of 2017 gets even better today. Persona 5 Royal releases for PS4 on March 31 in North America and Europe, and it makes Atlus’ already-massive, beloved JRPG even bigger. It reworks the storyline and adds a host of new features, including a new party member, mechanics, and cutscenes to make sure fans spend even more time exploring modern Japan and the psyches of its crooked denizens. It’s even changing some of Persona 5’s problematic scenes.
Updates like Royal are par for the course for the Persona series–both Persona 3 and Persona 4 received major re-releases–but Royal looks to be the biggest update a Persona game has ever gotten. We’ve been following the game since it was announced in Japan, and you can check out our P5R reveal trailer analysis or our breakdown of the several new features in the game.
There are several editions of Persona 5 Royal available for pre-order right now, both physical and digital. No matter which edition you pre-order, you’ll gain access to all of Persona 5’s original DLC. Below, we outline all of your Persona 5 Royal pre-order options.
