UPDATE: Persona 5 Royal English Version Release Date Revealedon December 3, 2019 by Zac Cocken
Ahead of the official announcement by Atlus on the 3rd December, various Asian regions of the PlayStation Store are displaying an English / Chinese version of the revamped JRPG. This could give us an insight into the Persona 5 Royal Western release date.
[UPDATE] PlayStation have confirmed the Western release date to be 31st March 2020. Watch the new trailer below.
2 new editions have also been announced, as pictured below:
Atlus have been lining up for a huge announcement over the past week, with many speculating it will all lead to the announcement of the Persona 5 Royal Western release. It seems that the PlayStation Store has jumped the gun, however. Areas such as Taiwan and Hong Kong are already advertising a 20th February 2020 release date for an English / Chinese version of the game – as reported by Persona Central.
This doesn’t confirm the actual release date will be the same for the West, but it’s a pretty strong indication that the localisation will be done and ready to go in February, and we can expect the game in the West very shortly after this release.
Persona 5 Royal is a new version of the hit JRPG from Atlus and packs in more features and content, a brand new female playable character and an expanded school year. You can also expect to be challenged by new enemies and variations in palace design, so even if you’re a Persona 5 master, there’s something here for you too.
Persona 5 Royal first released in Japan on PlayStation 4 on 31st October 2019.
