Atlus will be unveiling Persona 5 The Royal very soon, but when it eventually launches it apparently won’t have a simultaneous worldwide release.
Atlus briefly revealed Persona 5 The Royal through a teaser that had everyone jumping to conclusions about a female MC.
Since then, the studio has also announced Persona 5 S; a mysterious game that is said to star “new Phantom Thieves”.
Persona 5 The Royal will presumably launch in 2019, but it won’t have a simultaneous worldwide release according to the latest rumours.
- Persona 5 voice actors will live stream Atlus’ The Royal announcement
- Atlus' newest trailer for "Persona Q2" reintroduces familiar faces
- Atlus might bring Persona 3 and 4 to current-gen platforms if the opportunity arises
Atlus’ Persona 5 The Royal won’t have a simultaneous worldwide release
Gear Nuke has apparently acquired insider information about Persona 5 The Royal. According to the site’s anonymous sources, Persona 5 The Royal is – as expected – an extended cut similar to Persona 4: Golden.
It will supposedly have new Personas and Social Links, “a very lengthy new epilogue,” and a “ton of new content.”
While this is all very exciting, fans will understandably be disheartened by the likelihood of it not having a simultaneous worldwide release.
This was expected with Persona 5, Catherine: Full Body, and Persona Q2 all being released in Japan first, but it’s still a shame that western players will likely have to wait six months or longer to finally play the highly-anticipated extension.
