Update: Almost a week after the original publishing of this article, the Persona 5 Royal DLC Pack is now free in North America as well. Previously price tagged at $59.99, the bundle includes all of the game's additional content, including loads of character costumes and powerful personas.
You can grab the bundle right now from the PlayStation Store, even if you don't have the game.
It's worth reiterating that the Persona 5 Royal DLC Pack is for the PS4 version only. The PS5 version of Persona 5 Royal comes with all the DLC by default.
As noted in the original article below, we were wondering whether this 100% discount was down to some sort of bug or listing error — but apparently not!
Original Story: We don't know if it's some kind of bug or weird error, but the biggest DLC bundle for Persona 5 Royal, titled Persona 5 Royal DLC Pack, is currently free on the PlayStation Store in Europe. The bundle usually costs a whopping £49.99, and includes all of the game's DLC packs. That basically boils down to loads of costume sets and additional personas.
Again, we don't know why this is going free, but if you own Persona 5 Royal on PS4 — or heck, even if you don't — we'd highly recommend snapping it up while you can. The bundle has been on sale multiple times before, but only dropping to about half price.
And, just to be clear, this DLC bundle only applies to the PS4 version of Persona 5 Royal. The PS5 version comes with all of this DLC already included.
Will you be grabbing this bundle while it's still free? Might it tempt you back to Persona 5 Royal? Don't miss out in the comments section below.
Thanks for the heads-up. Nabbed it.
Added it, thanks! Perhaps a clue for PS Plus Extra.
Snagged! Just in case it was a mistake 😅
Thanks for the PSA, @ShogunRok. I played it safe and hit 'add to library' right away. I actually never got around to starting P5R on PS4 and was planning on picking up the recent PS5 release. But it doesn’t seem to add much beyond 60FPS, so I’m sticking with what I’ve got and I’ll finally start it once I’m done with Resident Evil 4. Thanks again!
Don’t even have P5Royal, but grabbed it just in case I ever want to do a Royal playthrough lol.
That definitely seem like an error. But snagged it either way.
Which one? There's a few DLC that are saying free?
Is it the one that says, Persona 5 Royal DLC Pack?
Clearly a sign Persona 6 is getting announced soon yeah?
@Snake_V5 Yeah, sorry, it's the Persona 5 Royal DLC Pack. There's a link to it in the article and in the source at the bottom.
Maybe this is because all the versions on the other consoles have dlc included? That seems unlikely, but perhaps. Hang on, it's just Europe, it's even less likely.
@ShogunRok Also, Persona 5 Royal on PS4 is showing as Persona 5 Royal Ultimate Edition. There doesn't seem to be just a standard Persona 5 Royal PS4.
How fast can I move to Europe? The cost savings of dodging the Atlus Tax surely must cover the expense?
@Snake_V5 Hmmm, interesting. Maybe the original P5R is being delisted? Might explain why they've had to make the DLC bundle free.
Shoulda been free from the start! Part of what makes RPGs is finding gear in-game not behind a paywall.
Too bad this isn't in the U.S. Sad.
Got it, thanks for the heads-up.
Man, I wish wish this was in the U.S as well.
I also wish the PS5 version had a save transfer. The lack of effort and making Persona has with these things, despite being a 10/10 game, is utterly ludicrous.
I only have the not royal p5, wish it worked with it. Added to the library nontheless. Thanks for the heads up!
Was Showing up in the USA store on the Mobile App,.. but did not actually work in the end
You still rock PushSquare 😉👍
@ShogunRok @Snake_V5 The standard version has been removed since the new port launched in October, this was probably because they wanted the game to be the same price with the same content on all platforms. I’m also pretty sure they reduced the price in Japan for the DLC around the same time to a really low price, but not free.
You okay Sega? You appear to be on a roll as of late.
@crashcontrol Ah ha, thanks for the info!
@Agramonte Drat, I'm still seeing it as full price.
Claimed, not that I'll ever find the time to play this again though.
@Agramonte Just checked and it's not showing up anymore sadly 😞
Was 40 minutes too late I guess.
Update: Just got it!
Time to reply the game again
@RawnDawn try again, just grabbed it myself from mobile app.
Thanks. I absolutely loved the original Persona 5 and had planned to play Royal eventually, so I'll be nabbing this.
Clicked download and is say’s purchased but it it hasn’t actually downloaded so maybe it didn’t work.
Na, Updated my post... It says owned when I check and have a receipt in my email but it wont actually download. So not sure you missed anything.
Meh I prefer to play my RPGs without these DLCs, being overpowered early on kinda ruines it for me. Also no intrest in outfits.
Added to my account. I'll probably just get the PS5 version with it already included, but it's nice to have.
Got it, thanks. Besides the 60fps is there any difference between the PS4 and PS5 version? Still angry about the not existing upgrade path from SEGA. They really hate their PlayStation fans.
@Greifchen Some very, very, very minor stuff like slightly altered art assets, but you'd never notice them without knowing beforehand.
Only real differences on PS5 are 60fps and all the DLC is included.
Think I already have them but I will have a look anyways 🤔
@ShogunRok Thank you.
@NEStalgia you have Xbox and GP? Play it there and then you have latest version
all DLC for a "definitive edition" release should have been included free of charge in the first place.
Yeah, should have been free in the first place, considering this was already a re-release. It's what made me decide to not get the game. Now I might actually buy it since the DLC is all free.
@stvevan I actually own the og p5 on PS4 and the original p5r. And I also bought the newest version it on xb plus gp. Switch is basically the only thing I haven't bought it on.... Yet.... 😂
Edit (if they had an upgrade path I'd have upgraded the ps version of course but since they didn't I say least added a platform.)
Top tip. Thanks. Downloaded!! So much content.. nice!
Grabbed them just in case. Thanks
Grabbed! I like free stuff!
@Snake_V5 ah, looks like I now own the ultimate edition on ps4. Sure I only bought the standard one. Maybe that's why it's free?
Thanks for making it clear that the PS5 version already has all of the above DLC included for free!
Just a heads up, it is now free on the NA store as well
Thanks for the heads up! 😉💪🙂
I was just able to redeem it in the U.S. Huzzah!
Thanks for the update! I grabbed it over here in NA. Not a huge thing, but definitely a nice touch. I can't believe they thought this bundle was worth $60, the price of the game.
Given the update and the other story(ies?) that has appeared over the weekend, it appears that Atlus may be on the brink of a Persona-related announcement, leading to them pushing out some Persona 5 DLC just to build up what extra little bit of hype it can generate.
N.i.c.e. i pick it up.word up son
Nice... 2nd try is the charm!
In Japan, Pack is JPY 22 ($0.15). Essentially free.
Thanks for the updated heads up, I was able to grab it this time!
Got it in NA. Yay! Now my PS4 copy caught up to my Switch copy.
