Persona 5: The Royal announced with mysterious teaser

Atlus gives us another small update on P5R

The next Persona game is called Persona 5: The Royal. It’s coming to PlayStation 4 and will be a role-playing game. But beyond that, the new animated teaser for the successor to Persona 5 doesn’t offer much detail.

Atlus released the first teaser for Persona 5: The Royal after it aired an animation special based on Persona 5, named Stars and Ours. The 45-second commercial for Persona 5: The Royal shows a new character standing in the rain at Shibuya Crossing, being asked what she thinks of the Phantom Thieves. According to a translation from Gematsu, the woman says she doesn’t think the group will ultimately help the world. “In the end, I feel like you can only solve that yourself,” she says. It’s not clear whether that makes her antagonistic to the Phantom Thieves or whether she’ll work in parallel with them.

The teaser — first promised in January — ends with the promise of more information to come on April 24. Atlus will hold a two-day concert event in Tokyo called Persona Super Live from April 24-25.
