Atlus teased some new Persona 5 announcements just before New Years after confirming via a brief teaser that, yes, Persona 5 R is real. What exactly Persona 5 R is, however, remains a mystery. But we have a few guesses.
Awhile back it was discovered that Atlus owned the P5R.jp web domain, fueling speculation that a new Persona 5 related project was incoming. After weeks of guessing Atlus confirmed that there will be more to learn about Persona 5 R on March 2019. I just love teasers for teasers, don't you?
Considering the many spinoffs for Persona games, Persona 5 R could be anything from a full remake with expanded features a la Persona 4 Golden and P3P, a Nintendo Switch port piggybacking off the recent Super Smash Bros. Ultimate news, or even a fighting game like Persona 4 Arena. We already got the prerequisite Persona 5 rhythm game and dungeon crawler, so those bases are covered.
While Persona 5 on Switch was rumored for some time, it's interesting to note that Atlus' New Year teaser featured a brief PlayStation logo at the start. So whatever Persona 5 R is, it's coming to the PlayStation at the very least.
We'll learn more about this mysterious Persona 5 R in March, so feel free to keep speculating what the "R" could possibly stand for. Personally my money is on Persona 5 Racing. Be sure to check out our Persona 5 guide for walkthroughs and tips.
