Persona 5 Royal PS5

Bloody hell, this has been needlessly confusing hasn't it? After Xbox seemingly embargoed news on PlayStation remasters of Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden, we received a press release that said both games — and Persona 5 Royal — were coming to PS5. We reported on that, but that information has quickly become outdated, as Atlus has supposedly confirmed which platforms these games are actually aiming for.

Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden are heading to PS4, not PS5. But Persona 5 Royal seems to be a different story. We say 'seems' because at this point Atlus is clearly capable of providing incorrect information. In any case, Persona 5 Royal is listed for PS5 — and the Japanese PlayStation Blog corroborates this.

So this is apparently a PS5 remaster of Persona 5 Royal, one of the PS4's absolute best RPGs. It will release on the 21st October, and it will, according to Atlus' website, include all previously released DLC.

Now then, what could be improved in a Persona 5 Royal remaster? Well, the frame rate could be doubled to 60 frames-per-second for a start. As for resolution, the title already runs in 4K on PS5 via backwards compatibility) and PS4 Pro, so we doubt that'll be changed.

Of course, what we don't know is whether this will be a free upgrade for those who already own Persona 5 Royal on PS4. You would hope that it would be — numerous developers have offered bigger upgrades than this for free — but we're talking about Atlus here; we wouldn't be at all surprised if it launched at full price.
