Atlus is beginning to tease little bits and pieces of Persona 5: The Royal as we edge closer and closer to its Japanese release later this year. The company's official Twitter account has pushed out a cheeky 20 second clip showing how the protagonist first meets new character Kasumi Yoshizawa.

After grabbing the kid's balloon, Kasumi says "Don’t let go of things that are important to you, okay?" (thanks Siliconera for the YouTube upload and translation).

Kasumi is one of the main highlights of The Royal. She supposedly joins the Phantom Thieves during the game's new semester, which takes place after the main story of Persona 5, at the start of the next calendar year. In combat she uses a sword and a repeater, and she clearly loves to dance.

So... Is Kasumi the new best girl? Get that social link rank up in the comments section below.
