Atlus' Persona 5 Royal is one of the most anticipated games of 2020 for PlayStation 4 gamers and JRPG enthusiasts, but a huge bummer is that it releases in Japan first on October 31st. Aside from the developer's native country being able to enjoy the game months in advance, the late release for the west is devastating because it has the potential for peoples' fresh experience to be ruined via major spoilers.
This was a huge issue when the base Persona 5 was released in 2017 as spoilers were aplenty across the internet. Atlus had issued guidelines and warnings in hope of preventing spoilers from leaking, and - despite not working - they're doing the same again with Persona 5 Royal.
Below you'll find the guidelines and warnings for streaming Persona 5 Royal issued by Atlus in hope of preventing spoilers.

What's new in Persona 5 Royal?
Persona 5 Royal is an extended-cut of sorts that is best compared to Persona 4: Golden - with that game's very director being at the helm.
Some of the new additions include a unique party member named Kasumi along with additional Confidants and extra areas to explore in Tokyo.
Oh, and you'll also be able to battle the MCs from Persona 3 and 4 to make the Persona 5 protagonist the number one Persona hunk.
Persona 5 Royal spoilers: Streaming guidelines and warnings by Atlus
Atlus has issued streaming guidelines and warnings for Persona 5 Royal in hope of preventing spoilers from leaking onto the internet (via Persona Channel).
Per the image above, Justine and Caroline discuss the guidelines. Justine stresses that players SHOULD NOT stream or post anything related to the game's story after the knife hits December 24th on the in-game calendar.
Justine then says fowl beings who commit the crime will be cursed and suffer all their personas turning into Agathions. Caroline chimes in by saying she'll add a sentence of a hundred Decarabia.
From Atlus officially, they simply request that you don't stream or post anything related to the story after December 24th in-game on video sharing sites or social media such as Twitter.
Below is further distribution guidelines from Atlus:
