Today’s issue of the magazine Weekly Famitsu included a lot of new screenshots about the upcoming Persona 5 Royal, which is set to add a lot of content and feature to the beloved JRPG by Atlus.
Most of the images are indeed about one of those new features introduced by the developer a few days ago, the personal palace.
We see how the palace can be customized by spending P Medals that can be gathered in a variety of ways, and it can be populated with many of your friends depending on how far you have progressed with their social link.
This includes characters beyond the Phantom Thieves themselves, and you can bring pretty much everyone in the palace. The interaction with them within this environments will be rather interesting because the conversations will be unique.
Funnily, you can actually step on their portrait in the palace and you will transform into one of your friends. You can have fun taking a walk around as Futaba or anyone else.
Items to decorate the palace can be purchased at a dedicated vending machine, and there are various themes available for you to choose from.
There are various achievements that you can earn in the main part of the game, and they provide you with P Medals and trophies that can be displayed in the palace.
Further feature allow you to enjoy music, concept art created for the game and even videos. This includes music videos from the concerts. Incidentally, the music tracks can also be set as the palace’s ambience.
There is a card minigame that you can play against your friends, and this also awards P Medals.
The more items you purchase and set in your palace, the more unique and personal it’ll look.
Last, but not least, we see the DLC which include characters from other Atlus games who you can fight against in the Velvet Room challenge battles. This includes protagonists from Persona 3 and 4, Persona Q2, and even Catherine: Full Body.
