Story

  • A fan asked if the new elements in P5R will alter the original story, and Atlus responds that the main story in Persona 5 will not be altered, but that Persona 5 Royal will feature an expanded episode not told in the original game.

Personas

  • A look at a new persona.

Combat Mechanics

  • New “traits” have been added as special effects to persona attacks.
  • There are various types of these “traits,” and it is possible to combine them to create a powerful persona.
  • Special accessories can be equipped that will allow the user to use specific “skills” during battle simply by wearing them. This will expand the range of tactics at hand by combining them depending on the persona.
  • When the enemy’s weakness is hit, Persona 5 had a mechanic called “Baton Touch” where a character could pass their turn to another for continued offense. This time, “Baton Touch” will result in a power up for up to 3 consecutive passes. A Baton Touch will increase attack power, health, and SP. Various other effects will be occurred as passes go up to 3.
  • The new flashy combination attacks between two characters are officially known as “Show Time” techniques.

New Location

  • The new area “Kichijoji” features various facilities that can be used such as “darts,” “billiards,” “jazz club,” “temples,” etc. These places can be used to deepen your relationship with your friends.
  • Depending on the facility used, new Baton Touch ranks with a specific character will level up, and a persona’s ability can be enhanced such as increasing their maximum amount of SP.
  • Another shop unique to Kichijoji is the “used clothing store.” There, you can hand in armor found in Mementos to earn points, which can then be exchanged for certain things.
