Persona 5 Royal has been released early in Australia

Persona 5 Royal Fans Ask Atlus For Early Release

Persona 5 Royal has been released early for Australian gamers to enjoy during the coronavirus pandemic.

As we previously wrote, a lot of fans on Twitter had been asking Atlus to release Persona 5 Royal early due to the coronavirus pandemic. While the game isn't available to play prematurely here in the UK, retailers in Australia are releasing the game before its official launch date.

Per Kotaku Australia, EB Games and JB Hi-Fi have both been releasing Persona 5 Royal early. PlayStation AU still has the release date marked for March 31st, but some very lucky buggers will be playing a week before then.

A Reddit user from Australia has showed their early copy. And, as you'd expect, there's plenty of people wishing that they could get the game early too.

Original story:

It's been an incredible month for video game releases with Animal Crossing New Horizons and DOOM Eternal, but things are set to get even better with the third highest rated PS4 game on Metacritic, Persona 5 Royal. And, with its release ever so close but still so far, some fans have to taken to Twitter to ask Atlus for an early release.

Helmed by the director of Persona 4 Golden, Persona 5 Royal is an extended cut of sorts which is said to be one of the best games ever made let alone one of the best PS4 exclusives. There's a new waifu for you to woo in Kasumi, there's a card game that will give Gwent a run for its money as the best in-game mini-game, and there's plenty more trophies for you to earn on your way to unlocking the platinum all over again.

It's coming out in a week, but there are some fans who are understandably desperate for an early release.

Persona 5 Royal early release

There isn't an early release for Persona 5 Royal but some fans are asking Atlus to prematurely launch the game.

Some have cited DOOM Eternal's early release, but that was under different circumstances with it coming out on the same day as Animal Crossing New Horizons.

Persona 5 Royal won't be given an early release, but who can blame fans for trying? If pestering Atlus like 'are we there yet' children would get them to launch the game early, you'd better believe we'd be joining in on the begging.

The game launches on March 31st, so you only have one week left to wait for it to come out on the PlayStation 4.
