While Atlus didn't provide any further details on what the game is, they teased that more information will be coming April 24 during a live concert event called, Persona Super Live 2019. Many suspect, due to the nature of previous Persona games and the trailer, that this title will be a Game of the Year edition that contains additional content.
The trailer for Persona 5 The Royal focuses on a new character who studies at the games high school, Shujin Academy, where most of the main characters also attend. In the trailer she is asked about her opinion on the Phantom Thieves, the vigilante group your player controls throughout the course of the game. She then points out that she does not exactly approve of their methods on crime fighting.

Atlus typically throws some new content into its re-released games, as fans have seen with their launches of Persona 3 FES and Persona 4 Golden. Many are guessing that this content will include a new palace and storyline.
