Atlus shared the second Morgana Report video that introduces us to the new features of Persona 5 Royal. We got to check out more of new character Kasumi Yoshizawa, and what’s new for the Palaces and battles.
In the video we’re introduced to Kasumi Yoshizawa who has the tarot card of La Foi for her Arcana of Faith. In battle she fights using rapiers and rifles, and her Persona is Cendrillon that specializes in physical attacks.
Here are a couple questions from fans:
Q: Persona 5 didn’t have a gallery mode to watch movies and events, but will there be a gallery mode in Persona 5 Royal?
A: According to the intel that Morgana stole from Atlus, there will indeed be some sort of gallery feature, but more information will be shared later.
Q: I want to learn more about the new elements surrounding Akechi Goro! Again, it looks like everyone is getting casual clothes so I hope to see them! Thank you!
A: There will be more for Akechi, so please look forward to it.
And here’s a sneak peek at Haru Okumura in her casual clothes.
Next up, starting at around the 4:00 mark of the video, we get to see more info on the Palace and Battle parts of Persona 5 Royal. When defeating the more powerful Shadows known as Kyouma in the Palaces you can get rare items. You can also find items called “Ishi” in Palaces that allow you to exchange them for accessories that lets you equip them for powerful skills.
We also get a look at the grapple hook “Wire System” that lets you go from one place to another, or even monsters to start a fight with the upper hand. Another addition is the added customization options for guns. You can customize them to increase accuracy or inflict status ailments to enemies. Bullets will also refill after each battle.
