Persona is a popular spin-off of Altus’ Megami Tensei series that includes various combat RPG games. It features a high school setting with a group of students as its main cast. The Persona series is built on a unique concept of self-exploration and the human psyche.
The series became very popular outside Japan when the first part of the spin-off series, ‘Revelations: Persona’ was released for North American players in 1996 on PlayStation. The series has had several games since then, with the latest mainline entry, ‘Persona 5,’ released in 2016.
Persona 5 Royal is a remastered version of Persona 5 and was released in 2020 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro. The popular series was missing from mainstream consoles like Xbox and Nintendo Switch. However, the popular JRPG was officially released for next-gen consoles, including Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on October 21, 2022.
The Xbox and Nintendo Switch versions also include the paid DLCs for free. The game’s arrival on modern platforms was marketed heavily with displays and advertising boards worldwide.
