Releasing the latest version with more complete content is one of Atlus’s strategies which is always used for their Persona games starting from Persona 3.
Persona 3 on PS2 has got 2 complete versions, named Persona 3 FES (Foreign Exchange Student) on PS2 and Persona 3 Portable on PSP. Meanwhile, Persona 4 on PS2 got the Persona 4 Golden version (Exclusive on PS Vita Console).
Persona 5 is following this tradition too. It is predictable that Atlus will repeat the same method that has proven successful in making Persona Fans buy the same game more than once. Hahaha .. Good Job Atlus …: D
Why did Atlus succeed in making Persona Fans WANT to buy the same game twice, even we can count three if we included 3 versions of Persona 3 released by Atlus? What makes that same game “look different” in other versions so people want to buy more?
The answer is the addition of lots of new content, drastic changes to the battle system, the addition of new features coupled with many bug fixes and a more stable gaming system. Even in certain versions, the story is different .. Wow ..
Atlus succeeded in making the same game with different taste, so people want to buy that game again because they want to feel and immerse themself with the different sensations and different playing experience from the previous version.
Okay, we return to Persona 5 Royal. After we are previously had a lot of confusing information about when to launch, this JRPG game has set a definite release date in the west, which is March 31, 2020, confirmed by Atlus.
But here is the interesting thing, from the information on the Playstation Store Asia, which began adding new pre-order game lists including Persona 5 Royal with Standard and Digital Deluxe Editions that can be purchased, the release date for Asia is different from West release date
Now for you Persona Fans, surely you can’t wait to see and play the adventures of the Joker and his friends. Persona 5 Royal will be released on March 31, 2019 in the west exclusively only for Playstation 4.
However people in Asia might have more joy because they can play the game first in advance on February 20, 2020 before others in the west. So, interested in buying Persona 5 Royal game again?
