Persona 5 Royal Details Are Coming In 12 Days, Likely Including A Western Release Date

You'll never see it coming.

5 Comments

Persona 5 Royal, which takes the original Persona 5 and expands upon it with new scenes, interactions, and attacks, plus an entire extra in-game semester, is coming to PlayStaion 4 in the west next year. We know that the game is due in Spring 2020, but a specific release date has not been announced, despite the game's Japanese release having already launched on October 31.

Now the Atlus USA Twitter account has told us that an announcement is coming in 12 days (on December 3.) While it hasn't been specific about what the announcement will contain, a release date is very likely.

A countdown timer on the Persona 5 Royal website promises that "the truth will be revealed" once it finishes counting down. We don't know exactly what will be announced, but with the game already out in Japan, there's not much left to reveal beyond this. Whatever news is coming, though, we can track when it's coming down to the second.

The next game in the Persona series to release in Japan will be Koei Tecmo's action spin-off Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. It will release for PS4 and Switch in Japan on February 20, 2020. It's possible that we'll find out about a western release for Scramble at the end of the countdown as well, but nothing has been confirmed as of yet.

If they're not even releasing the Persona dancing games on Switch then I doubt the actual mainline titles ever will. Besides Scramble and SMTV are supposed to be coming to switch at some point.

Would be amazing if Atlus can confirm ports of Persona 4 Golden and Persona 3 FES for switch.
