This game is insane! Persona 5 Royal is an enhancement and extension of its original game Persona 5.

The story goes with your protagonist also known as Joker in the metaverse. He and with others teenagers got involved in the injustice of the adults; turning them in a group called Phantom Thieves, that will change the hearts for those have distorted desires.

The game is great

  • Good development of characters
  • Excellent music
  • Fun combat turn base mechanics

This game is not for all, Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal is a RPG/Novel game, in which you will pass 80% of your time reading and making decision. The gameplay and combat mechanic is a little complex so it has several mini tutorials, which you will be unlocking little by little. The first Palace is a complete tutorial.

It took me 145h to complete the game with all the trophies. So you get an idea how long is the game. If you like novels game and the RPGs, you should try this game. It has an interesting story with different endings, excellent music for combat and exploring, and great combat system.

Persona 5 was already a strong front-runner for being the best JRPG ever made, and Royal really gets me wondering what else could even compete. The excellent story and its lovable, multidimensional characters along with the challenging, tactical combat are all refined and back for another round with new surprises and new friends in tow. There are new areas to explore and new twists to leave your jaw on the floor.

Persona 5 Royale is a marvelous victory lap. The original was pure enjoyment, but Royal greatly enhances it. Now mind you, this isn’t some monumental change that the more casual players would want to reinvest another 100-150 hours into, but if you’re looking for an extension of the story and a more robust, complete combat system, then Royal is for you.

If you've never played Persona 5 before, then snatching up a copy of Persona 5 Royal is simply the best way to play this story. However, if you've already spent one year wearing the mask already, you might need to have a small change in your cognition to see whether or not it's worth a second playthrough.
