Today, during a livestream from Japan, Atlus showcased some brand new gameplay of the upcoming Persona 5 re-release Persona 5 Royal.
First and foremost we get the reveal of some brand new gameplay, and it’s rather special considering that it’s the first 15 minutes of the game.
That being said, this isn’t the beginning that we remember, or at least not completely.
While the infiltration of the casino palace begins pretty much as we remember, things become quite different as we’re introduced to the grappling mechanic and at the first appearance of the new heroine Kasumi Yoshizawa, who changes the scene rather radically, even if she doesn’t appear to alter its outcome.
You can watch it below.
Additional shorter gameplay segment showcase combat and the Show Time attack between Makoto and Ryuji.
You can check those out below as well.
If you’d like to see more of Persona 5 Royal, you also enjoy the opening animation, a recent trailer, latest English trailer, the previous trailer and gameplay reveal, including Goro Akechi, Jose and Mementos, two recent videos focusing on the new character Kasumi and additions to the battle system and two more showing another look at the new features.
We then have a recent trailer in English, a batch of gameplay screenshots, the first character trailer focusing on Kasumi the second showcasing Ryuji, the third starring Ann, the fourth focusing on Yusuke, the fifth showcasing Makoto, the sixth featuring Futaba, the seventh showing Haru, the eighth starring Morgana, the ninth focusing on Takuto Maruki, and the latest starring the hero.
Persona 5 Royal is launching in the west in spring 2020, and in Japan on October 31, 2019, exclusively for PS4.
