Today Atlus and Sega hosted a panel dedicated to the art of Persona character designer Shigenori Soejima and announced a new release window for Persona 5 Royal.
While we did not yet get a release date, we now have one more piece of the puzzle, and we know that the game is coming west in the spring of 2020.
While the panel wasn’t livestreamed, we get some info thanks to Twitter user Kalai.
Soejima-san discussed the design of the new Phantom Thief kasumi, her persona Cendrillion, and more.
The panel was hosted during a dedicated art exhibition at the well-known Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, California, and featured art from both Persona 5 and Catherine.
