Persona 5 Royal Release Date Confirmed for March 31, 2020 in the West, New Trailer


The Western release date for Persona 5 Royal has been confirmed for March 31, 2020 via an Amazon Canada product listing.

This follows the tease that Atlus USA would be making a Persona 5 Royal related announcement for the West today, on December 3, 2019. The official English website is still counting down to the announcement as of this writing, and this post will be updated once it is made.

With this release date in mind, the previously listed “English/Chinese” version of Persona 5 Royal for February 20, 2020 on PlayStation Asia could represent an earlier version of the game with English localization for its subtitles.

In October, the November 2019 issue of Game Informer included an interview with Persona series character designer Shigenori Soejima. In the interview’s introduction by Game Informer itself, it indicated a March 2020 release for the game.
