Persona 5: The Royal is Coming to PlayStation 4, but Not the Switch (Yet).

There's a new girl here who's eager to tell you why she thinks the Phantom Thieves suck.

Earlier today, Atlus finally confirmed Persona 5 is getting the same upgrade treatment it bestowed upon Persona 3 and Persona 4. Persona 5: The Royal is coming to PlayStation 4.

"Wait!" you cry, "PlayStation 4? What about the Switch?" Excellent question, and one we don't have an answer for yet. All we know for now is Persona 5: The Royal apparently has new content that involves a young schoolgirl with long red hair (Thanks to Gematsu for the translation).

"I think helping people is a wonderful thing, but if I had to say, I don’t like [The Phantom Thieves]," the nameless girl tells a friend in the teaser for Persona 5: The Royal. "I don’t think the Phantom Thieves’ methods will make the world a better place or help anyone. In the end, I feel like you can only solve that yourself.”

Vague stuff, eh? That's by design. We'll learn lots more about Persona 5: The Royal on April 24 at the Persona Super Live Concert in Tokyo. I'm going to assume that's also where we'll know once and for all what the status of The Royal is on Switch, or if Persona 5 is coming to the Switch at all. Given the imminent arrival of Joker in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, I find it a bit hard to believe Persona 5: The Royal won't wind up on Nintendo's console / handheld hybrid. There's even a chance we'll learn something when Joker comes to Smash, which should happen before the Persona Super Live Concert. For now, there's an official page for The Royal that you can keep an eye on.

Persona 5 is very nearly two years old now, but it made a heck of an impression. Many RPG fans named it their favorite game of 2017. I'm about ready to run with the Phantom Thieves again in The Royal—as long as I'm home before bedtime. I don't want my mom to get mad at me.
