New Persona 5 Royal Trailer is Splashed with Striking Colors, New Story Content, New English Dialogue

This new trailer for Persona 5 Royal wants to steal your heart.

Persona 5 is nearly two years old, and the Phantom Thieves of Hearts are gearing up for their next heist. Earlier today, Atlus released a trailer for the upcoming Persona 5 Royal that outlines some of the new content we can expect to see in this follow-up caper for the PlayStation 4.

Like with Persona 4 The Golden, Persona 5 Royal is no piddly update. It's telling that the three-minute trailer is almost entirely new content, including new music, footage of what seems to be a new intro, new voices, and new story bits involving the new playable character Kasumi Yoshizawa. We also get a look at one of the new Confidants, Shujin Academy's councillor Takuto Maruki. He's drEeEeeEEamy.

We also get a look at some of the game's new spots, such as Kichijoji. There's an aquarium, a game lounge, and a bunch of new restaurants and cafes to visit. In other words, if you're looking to romance your beau, you have options (hoping we get same sex dating, too: I want to take Yusuke out for lobster).

Though the new trailer still features Japanese text, the voices are all in English. The intent is probably to assure Westerners we're getting Persona 5 Royal in 2020 (Japan gets it October 31 of this year), especially since there's some disappointment over Royal—or any Persona 5 iteration, really—not coming to the Switch. Instead, Switch owners will eventually receive Persona 5 Scramble, a Dynasty Warriors-style Musou game starring the Phantom Thieves.

We'll keep on top of Persona 5 Royal like Morgana keeps on top of your bedtime. Visit our Persona 5 Royal guide for more information about the game.
