Persona 5 The Royal will feature plenty of DLC and bonus content from the original game. The biggest fan addition is the ability to fight the Persona 3 Protagonist and Persona 4 Protagonist.
They can only be challenged in the Velvet Room so it is unclear on whether they have any importance in the story. Considering the Velvet Room has no effect in space and time, it most likely a fun addition. It looks to be a Optional Boss in the newly added challenge room.
The trailer showed the Persona 4 protagonist with his persona, Izanagi, and images from the Japanese Persona 5 Royal website showed the Persona 3 protagonist using Thanatos.
The female protagonist from P3P is not featured (as usual).
Persona 5 Royal releases in Japan on Oct. 31 and will come to the West in 2020 for PlayStation 4.
It’s finally official. Persona 5 The Royal will release in Europe and the USA in a new trailer. The Royal is an updated version of 2017 original with a variety of new additions

The game will be $59.99 and if you owned the original version of Persona 5, you’ll earn an undetermined bonus. The Royal will release in Japan on October 2019 so be wary of potential spoilers while you wait for the international release!
Everyone was hoping Persona 5 would come to the Nintendo Switch after Joker was announced for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Unfortunately, Persona 5 S didn’t stand for Switch but rater Scramble! Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Striker is the official title and was revealed during the Persona Live Special last night in Japan. The game is another spin-off from Persona 5. It is a Musou/Warriors style game where the Phantom Thieves will fight swarms of enemies using their Personas and weapons. The game is being produced alongside Koei Techmo (Dynasty Warriors series). The game will be for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 but has no release date.
While fans are understandably disappointed, hopefully, the game will be as good as Hyrule Warriors. (Legend of Zelda muso game) In the trailer, a young girl was showcase so the game may have a unique story for The Phantom Strikers.
