I loved Persona 5, so when “Persona 5 R” was first teased, I was interested in what it might be.

Would it be the much-rumored Switch port? Would it be an upgraded version, along the lines of Persona 4 Golden? Would it be a spin-off?

With the initial teaser, Atlus said more information would be announced in March, and now Persona 5: The Royal has been revealed for the PS4!

…and we still don’t know what it is.

The teaser trailer for Persona 5: The Royal shows a new female character who is asked her opinion of the Phantom Thieves. She says she doesn’t agree with their methods.

This has caused a flurry of theories.

Many people believe Persona 5: The Royal is an enhanced version of Persona 5 that will have the option for a female protagonist, like Persona 3 Portable did. However, based on her uniform, she’s a first-year student, so it doesn’t seem like she’s just a female Joker.

It’s possible she’s a female protagonist with a different campaign, but she might just be a new confidant or supporting character (although it seems strange for the teaser to feature her if she isn’t too important).

And what about her comment on the Phantom Thieves? Some people think she opposes the Phantom Thieves, while others believe she’s lying in the teaser.

The other popular theory is that Persona 5: The Royal is a sequel or companion game, with an all-new story.

More information is coming on April 24, so we should get some answers then… hopefully. Personally, I’d rather it be an entirely new game, since I’m not likely to buy and play a new version of such a long game for just some extra content. What do you think Persona 5: The Royal is?
