Persona 5: The Royal Unveiled for PS4 With Brief Teaser, Stars a New Character

Following a teaser in December 2018 and after promising “news” this weekend, Atlus announced that Persona 5 R is a new role-playing game for the PlayStation 4, officially titled Persona 5: The Royal.

Yet another teaser was released, with Atlus promising more information on April 24 during the Persona Super Live Concert.

In the absence of any further information, fans have been attempting to decipher the teaser. For starters, the new female character appears to be a fellow student of the Phantom Thieves at Shujin Academy. As Twinfinite points out, the pin on her uniform indicates that she’s a first-year student.

A translation of the teaser provided by Gematsu reveals that a voice is asking, “What do you think of the Phantom Thieves?” The new character responds, “I think helping people is a wonderful thing, but if I had to say, I don’t like them. I don’t think the Phantom Thieves’ methods will make the world a better place or help anyone. In the end, I feel like you can only solve that yourself.”

An official website dedicated to Persona 5: The Royal is also live but, as expected, it doesn’t offer any details at the moment.
