Okay so most of it is. Atlus explained that Persona 5 The Royal will launch on October 31 in the region and will track an additional Phantom Thieves member: Kasumi Yoshizawa. Atlus promises more information in May and Atlus USA confirmed that the Western edition would come sometime in 2020. The Japanese landing page clarifies ( thanks Nibel! ) that this version has 4K / Pro support, new songs and new characters (in addition to the above-mentioned Kasumi). While Persona 5 is an approximately 1 00 hour endeavor, almost everyone I have collaborated with doing everything over again (myself with!) With original release, much less an enhanced Royal one. The implications of Royal are huge, as people still play the re-editions of former Persona years after that fact. I can see myself digging out my PS4 (or PS5, if backward compatibility requirements are correct) 20 years from now on to launch Persona 5 again. More SKUs mean more copies in nature and less chance of this amazing game being lost in time. Persona is also possibly in the best shape ever. While Persona 4 Golden era was enlightening, Joker showed the appearance of Super Smash Bros. is a big win for Atlus, not to mention The Royal or any number of rumors about Switch releases.

I will never forget how scrappy this series was when my cousin showed me his copy of the original. Now it is practically an institution.
