Persona 5 Royal review | Tom’s Guide

Persona 5 Royal adds even more content to one of the longest Japanese role-playing games (JRPG) in the genre — but fans of the series probably won’t complain. First released as Persona 5 back in 2016, Persona 5 Royal is an updated version of the original game, which adds new characters, tweaks to the battle system, quality-of-life improvements and an extra semester, complete with its own Palace. What sets this new release apart is that Persona 5 Royal is no longer a PlayStation exclusive. Players can now experience this game on the Xbox Series X/S, PC and Nintendo Switch.

Persona 5 Royal review: Specs

Price: $60

Release Date: October 21, 2022

Genre: JRPG

Despite being an enhanced version of the fifth Persona game, Persona 5 Royal is a great jumping-off point for players who are new to the series. Throughout the game’s 100-plus-hour story, players explore dungeons, take on increasingly difficult foes and capture new Personas to build out their arsenal. In-between taking down palaces, you attend high school in Tokyo and engage in activities to boost your social stats.
