We previously reported on Persona 5 Royal’s unexpectedly voluminous third semester and QoL improvements from this week’s Famitsu, which also shared a glimpse at some of the new features.

In addition to new elements in Persona 5 Royal, Atlus is working on quality-of-life improvements, such as improving its tempo by making it easier to earn experience points. The developers say  that Persona 5 Royal’s third semester is being prepared to go beyond expectations of those who played through Persona 4 Golden.

We also got another look at the mysterious character, simply called イケメン (“Ikemen” meaning handsome/good-looking man). The magazine suggests his connection to Morgana as he uses the same archaic personal pronoun “wagahai” just like the Phantom Thieves’ second-in-command.

The “Kyoma” are powerful new enemies you’ll encounter in Persona 5 Royal.

The game also adds new mechanics for the Palaces that we didn’t see in the original Persona 5. There appears to be a mysterious glowing object involved here.
