<em>Persona 5<\/em> first launched in 2016, but Atlus has made it clear they're not ready to finish the Phantom Thieves' story.\r\n\r\nAtlus is soon releasing <em>Persona 5 Royal<\/em>, an enhanced edition of the original game on the PlayStation 4. First teased as <em>Persona 5 R<\/em> in December 2018, <em>Royal<\/em> takes a similar path to the game before it, Persona 4, where new story content, gameplay, and a new character will be joining the Phantom Thieves.\r\n\r\nA new Japanese ad spot teases some of the new content coming to <em>Persona 5 Royal<\/em>. There is some new footage of the new Phantom Thieves member, Kasumi Yoshizawa.\r\n\r\n[embed]https:\/\/youtu.be\/9XWlZ4FM1w4[\/embed]\r\n\r\nAtlus previously showcased the newcomer Kasumi in a live stream in late August. Similar to the other characters, she is a student who leads a double life. During the day, she attends class at Shujin Academy while at night she transforms into a Phantom Thief.\r\n\r\n<em>Persona 5 Royal<\/em> will include new story content but also plenty of additional content outside of the main storyline. Players will have plenty of content when they need a break from student life.\r\n\r\nOne of the new features coming soon is "My Palace," a customizable area within the protagonist's memories. Within the palace, players can change the decor with the "Palace Maker" and even the playable character. The items come at a price and must be purchased using "P-medals," which are gained during normal gameplay. Other characters will also appear in the palace.\r\n\r\nThere is a new play area where Joker can play various games with his fellow Phantom Thieves.\r\n\r\nIn a new music box feature, gamers can listen to the soundtrack, including brand new songs coming to the tracklist.\r\n\r\nFor those who enjoy battles more than socializing, there is a new "Challenge Battle" feature. Joker will have to fight various challenges, including the lead protagonists of <em>Persona 3<\/em> and <em>4<\/em>. These challenges will increase in difficulty.\r\n\r\nAtlus has announced even more <em>Persona 5<\/em> goodies coming soon around the same time as the Royals launch. Japanese players will see three limited edition PlayStation 4 consoles in collaboration with Atlus. Each one comes with a DualShock 4 controller that matches the color scheme of the console.\r\n\r\n<em>Persona 5 Royal<\/em> does not come with the limited edition PlayStation 4s and must be purchased separately.\r\n\r\n<em>Persona 5 Royal<\/em> will be released in Japan on October 31. It will launch worldwide later in 2020.
