Persona 5 is an RPG that was released worldwide on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in 2016. The game proved to be very popular, especially among RPG fans and dating-simulators and was praised for its visuals, story, and characters.
An updated version of Persona 5, called Persona 5 Royal, was first teased in December of last year, and then a full trailer was released in April 2019. Royal is an expanded version of the original Persona 5 game, and it includes new features and new areas to explore.
