Persona 5 The Royal, Game Name Reveal Trailer
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.
New Content Incoming
It's very possible that this new character will be the focus of the additional content. 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.

Atlus officially announced Persona 5 R, the latest version of its critically acclaimed RPG. So far, only a teaser video and website have been released, but neither of them reveal what the new title will contain.
Persona 5 R, What Is It?
Both the website and the teaser trailer indicate that Atlus will have more to reveal on Persona 5 R in March 2019. The video shows off a PlayStation Logo in the beginning, which means whatever the developer has planned will be on the PS4. "New Projects" can also be heard throughout the teaser, leading many to believe Atlus will have a lot more to reveal in the next couple of months.
Much like Capcom, Atlus has been known to release enhanced secondary editions of their popular titles. Both Persona 3 FES and Persona 4 Golden are examples of Atlus remastering and expanding an already lengthy game and Persona 5 R could potentially follow the same path.
Bring It To The Switch!
Many fans are hopeful that this means a version of Persona 5 will finally appear on the Nintendo Switch. Speculation has also been increased by the recent reveal that Joker (Persona 5's protagonist) will appear in Super Smash Ultimate's first Character DLC. This wouldn't be Atlus' first portable Persona as both Persona 3 and 4 got handheld adaptations.
Persona 5 initially launched in March of 2017 and was well received by critics and fans alike. We'll be sure to keep a close eye on Persona 5 R so be sure to keep checking back here at GigamaxGames.com for all the latest information.
