What to expect from the new Persona 5 Royal trailer

The new Persona 5 Royal trailer will introduce the Confidant Takuto Maruki.

This is a unique character to the Royal expansion, and he is said to be a part-time Counsellor at Shujin Academy.

Due to being someone who is a decent bloke compared to the humpty dumpty principal and perverted gym teacher, Maruki is someone the Shujin students enjoy being around.

He's a good listener who gives appropriate advice, and his sessions with the likes of Ann and Ryuji will unearth new secrets about your Phantom Thieves family members.

Not only that, but it's believed his role as a Confidant will introduce additional Mementos requests.

Other character introduction trailers for Persona 5 Royal include stylish combo attacks and new Personas for the likes of Ann and Ryuji.

As for other unique characters the soft remake will include, there's the gymnast Kasumi Yoshizawa, as well as a silver-haired boy who roams the labyrinth of Mementos in a buggy.
