The Nyahoo News announcement is over thirteen minutes long and it’s on Atlus’s Youtube channel. You can watch the video here:

Kasumi and Akechi will appear in the “Repaint Your Heart” Persona 5 Tactica DLC episode, with Akechi appearing in his Prince outfit. The DLC story follows a mysterious artist, Guernica, who creates artwork around town in a single night. Some of the graffiti even features Arsene, whose appearance should be unknown unless you’re a Persona user.

Kasumi asks for Joker’s help to uncover what’s going on, and they meet up with Akechi, who also happened to be investigating it. It’s unclear how many spoilers from Royal will be in Repaint Your Heart. This pertains to events and revelations that happen in Maruki Palace. As you can expect, Akechi’s Persona is still Robin Hood. Meanwhile, Kasumi will use Cendrillon.

As for other characters from the previous games, Lavenza will be the attendant of the Velvet Room. The steampunk aesthetic of the Velvet Room appears in the Fusion method, as well as in Lavenza’s wear. She has what looks like a leather apron over her usual dress. As well, Fusing Personas will look like melting two gears together.
