    The Phantom Thieves are back to take your heart, in Persona 5: Royal, which is set to launch on October 31 in Japan, and 2020 in the west. A Japanese trailer show new gameplay, with a new character, bonus cutscenes, and additional elements that were not in the original game. The new character's name is Kasumi Yoshizawa, a transfer student that hates the Phantom Thieves. In the press release, it mentions that there will be an entire extra school semester added to the game, which will allow you to go to never before seen areas to raise your skills or take your confidants to. Another new character, Takuto Maruki was also revealed, who has the role of being the school counselor. As for Persona 5: S, information on that game will be available tomorrow. Persona 5: Royal will be available on the PlayStation 4, and will be enhanced for PS4 Pro users.

    Seeing a trailer like this reminds me of when Pokémon Platinum first got announced when I was a kid.

    Look at all the NEW stuff!!! Look at all the OLD stuff!! Look at all this tiny stuff that's been tweaked and/or changed!

    Oh yeah, I forgot. PS5 has the whole PS4 library. Now any PS4 game would have to be a full remake and any ports/remasters will have to be from other consoles.

    Well, P5 launched in Japan September 2016 IIRC and April 2017 in the West, so it is possible that we'll get it before Summer 2020, hopefully!
    The hype is real!

    Eh, I want to be hyped for this, but tbh I am kinda getting a bit tired of these enhanced editions that cost as much as the original.

    If it were DLC and the phsyical release of this was just the game + the new DLC for newcomers/collectors I might understand it more and be more excited for it.

    So this will be just like Persona 4 Golden? As in the whole Persona 5 game will be there plus the extra content?

    Yes.
    ATLUS didn't cut content. They always release an extended version like Persona 3 FES / P3P and Persona 4 Golden

    Maingame was 6/10, won't come back for this.
    Female protagonist looks cute though.

    As this is going to be PS4 Pro enhanced I'll definitely be picking it up. I currently only have the PS3 release, and didn't consider the PS4 version to be an upgrade (as it was developed as a PS3 title, the PS4 only had negligible tweaks)...
    ...shame we've got to wait until sometime next year, but I'm okay with that.

    Start here, they aren't traditional sequels or anything

    Kind of like how you can start with any zelda
