Persona 5 Royal is hours away from release in Japan and this week’s issue of Famitsu magazine shared last-minute details, including more info on the Confidants, and a streaming restriction update. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089.]
- Development on Persona 5 Royal started before Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight.
- The developers say you might want to forget some of the strategies used in the original Persona 5, as what may have worked in Persona 5 might not work the same in Persona 5 Royal.
- If you want to max out all Confidants on your first run, it is recommended to consider responding to phone calls.
- There are Confidant Coops that won’t progress after the third semester. (They’ll have omen signs.)
- You can now give gifts to male Confidants. Previously in Persona 5 you could only gift female Confidants.
- At areas that allow you to take cover, you’ll get to pass through even when there are enemies on the spot.
- PS4 Share function support guidelines have been extended to the in-game month of December. In Persona 5 players were asked to refrain from streaming or posting videos past November 19 in-game (originally July 7). Persona 5 Royal extends it to sometime in December.
