Looks that a more approximate date for Persona 5 Royal has been slated for western release this coming March. Although players in Japan will have the advantage of playing the game this coming Halloween, fans on the other side of the globe will have to patiently wait just a few more months for a properly translated version to make its way to the West.
Noted, this specific timeframe for the title has already been detailed previously as developer Atlus confirmed that the game will receive a “Spring 2020” launch, however, a recent break of news discloses a centered release window for the game. In an interview with Game Informer, Character Designer Shigenori Soejima discusses the design for the additional characters that have been included in the updated Persona 5 Royale. This comes from the upcoming November 2019 issue from the gaming publication which also reveals the game’s release for this coming March.
