Persona 5 Royal adds a new character called Kasumi Yoshizawa, a celebrated high school gymnast who enrols in the same school as Joker at the same time. The difference is Kasumi doesn’t agree with the actions of the Phantom Thieves but she ends up joining anyway for her own reasons. There will be new dungeons and bosses to tackle, a brand new area to explore, and new content for the existing Phantom Thieves.

In our original review of Persona 5 Dave wrote:

“Persona 5 stole my heart. It was impossible to believe that the best game of the already venerated series was still to come, and yet somehow everything works wonderfully. I’d rather the dialogue didn’t pad things out as much as it did, but I was captivated from beginning to end, while it successfully brought back mechanics long thought out-dated, and introduced smart changes for the better. An essential RPG for 2017 that you should not miss out on.”
