Check all the list of Royal changes compared to OG Persona 5: pushsquare.com/gui…a-5

New Content in Persona 5 Royal
  • New character and party member named Kasumi
  • An entirely new school semester has been added, expanding the story alongside a new Palace
  • The new 'Thieves Den' feature lets you visit a huge room full of unlockable bonus content at any time through the pause menu. You can use in-game currency to unlock things like artwork, character models, cutscenes, and music
  • A number of brand new animated story cutscenes
  • A whole new location called Kichijoji is yours to explore, and it's bigger than any other real world location in the game
  • Kichijoji has a club that you can visit with party members, opening up new social and bonding events
  • Kichijoji's club features a darts minigame that enhances the effects of baton pass for each character
  • Kichijoji's club also has billiards. There's no actual minigame, but choosing to play billiards strengthens your relationship with every available party member by a small amount
  • Kichijoji has a jazz bar that can grant party members level ups and stat boosts
  • Kichijoji has a temple where you can permanently increase Joker's SP through meditation
  • Kichijoji has a number of shops that offer new services and items
  • Two brand new confidants with their own perks
  • Akechi's social link route has been completely overhauled, slots differently into the story
  • Some confidants (particularly party members) have additional social scenes
  • New events, such as holidays and additional character scenes, have been added to the calendar
  • New Personas
  • New third form for each party member's Persona
  • New enemies
  • New weapons
  • New armour
  • New accessories
  • New items
  • Two new story endings
Gameplay Additions in Persona 5 Royal
  • The Phantom Thieves now have powerful 'Showtime' attacks -- basically tag-team super moves. They're unlocked one by one as the story progresses
  • All Palaces have been reworked to some degree, although largely they remain the same in terms of layout
  • Some Palaces have completely new areas
  • Joker now has a grappling hook that lets you access new areas in dungeons
  • The grappling hook often leads to secret locations that house 'Will Seeds' -- there are three Will Seeds to find in each Palace
  • Each time you find all three Will Seeds in a Palace, you'll be rewarded with a unique accessory
  • Will Seeds also restore a bit of the party's SP
  • All Palace bosses have been reworked in some way, either with additional mechanics or phases
  • Some Palaces now have additional boss-like enemies and encounters
  • Mementos, the randomised dungeon that you can visit when you have free time, has been expanded quite significantly -- floors can be bigger and there's more room for exploration in general
  • Mementos now has a shop that sells exclusive goods in exchange for 'flowers' -- collectables that you find while exploring
  • A new 'stamp' system has been added to Mementos. Stamps can be found on each floor, and you can spend them on three different bonuses: more exp, more money, and more items. Once activated, these bonuses are permanent, unless you decide to reset them
  • There are new side quests to complete in Mementos
  • Rare, unstable shadows can now appear both in Palaces and Mementos. On death, they explode, dealing big damage to all other enemies
  • The Velvet Room now offers special optional battles that you can take part in for various rewards (this is also where DLC battles take place)
  • The Velvet Room can now go into a random 'alarm' mode, which powers up persona fusion and other services, but may also result in unexpected fusion results
Gameplay Adjustments in Persona 5 Royal (Dungeons and Combat)
  • Ammo now restocks after battle, making guns way more valuable across dungeon runs
  • Some Personas have been rebalanced both in terms of stats and available skills
  • Some enemies have been rebalanced both in terms of stats and available skills
  • The baton pass mechanic has been expanded and is available to all party members from the beginning
Gameplay Adjustments in Persona 5 Royal (Everyday Life)
  • The calendar has been reworked in places, allowing for more free time and additional opportunities to interact with your confidants
  • Morgana doesn't tell you to go to bed quite so much -- you generally get a lot more free time at night, even if you can't leave Leblanc
  • 'Assist' mechanic gives you recommendations on which confidant to visit and which stat to improve
  • Confidants can now call you after you hang out with them, giving you an additional dialogue choice and therefore another opportunity to strengthen your bond with them
  • Some confidants have reworked perks
Other Additions in Persona 5 Royal
  • Graphical enhancements on PS4 Pro
  • New opening movie
  • New main menu screen
  • New dialogue text font in the localised release
  • Some dialogue windows have new visual effects
  • New and additional character portraits in conversations
  • Around 30 new music tracks
  • New weather effects have been added depending on the time of year in-game
  • New Game Plus now carries over additional bonuses, like HP and SP increases
  • A completely new Trophy list, separate from Persona 5's

I know someone who prefers the OG because apparently difficulty on Royal easier and new storyline is alright but not great

Royal is like a directors cut with a new character and more story lines
Having never played a Persona before I got this after I completed FF7 remake. Great game and was £35 cheaper then royal at the time. 100 hours worth of gameplay can’t complain, even if the royal edition exists I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this to anyone after a new JRPG
Great game but if you’ve never played it, P5 Royal should be the one you choose

Yea, it's a bit shady them doing this.. They should've discontinued the original when royal came out.

Currently 60hrs into royal, great game

Perfect description mate. Thank you.
If you like the genre this one is great
It’s also absolutely beautiful in terms of UI and styling. The artistic styling of P5 is stunning. It’s gorgeous.
A must buy for this price, thats crazy low. Its one of those games you would like to own physical copy.
Royal is worth the extra

Yeah - Royal should be available as DLC...
Royal is 3 times this price (£37.49) and it's only slightly better.

Iirc royal is available as a dlc upgrade but its like £40 so pointless.

Good thing about royal too is one of its free dlc's is a bundle with ALL the dlc from standard persona

No, it's standalone only
There's an Ultimate Edition of this version for £20 but it's just the same game with all costumes / persona / cards unlocked.

Larian offers Divinity Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition for free for all owners of the game.

Atlus wants to charge everybody full price again for essentially the same thing.

It feels pretty lousy.

Silly question perhaps but I didn't really get on with Persona 4 Golden that much, found the dungeons especially to be quite bland. Would I be wasting my time here or worth giving it a try? I'm generally a big RPG fan.

For royal they improved it quite a bit. I think you'll enjoy it.
this was £10 with the extra ps+ discount couple months ago, but this is still a good price for one of the best jrpg's withing the last several years

Nice one heat added. Youve got the name of the game wrong.

How odd? I copy and pasted that from the PS Store
Having played and finished both the original and the Royal version, I'd say that if you're tight with money, definitely go for the original. The Royal additions only really appeal to players like me who completed the original three years ago. Royal is also too easy, and the new storylines, although definitely good, are not amazing.

Royal is basically some QoL changes, a whole lot of little things that make the game much easier than it should, and a single extra dungeon. Not worth three times the price for a new player.
I am scared of this game
Got the Royal plat, don't know if I can bring myself to redo the base game again
Heat+ Considering that Royal is almost a complete remake with new music, gameplay adjustments, new storylines etc, I would be tempted to start with this, then play Royal later on. Obviously, that is 2 purchases.
I got it for 9.99 a few months ago. I've since got p5r and I've already put 70 hours into that and it's only November
Played it the best part of a year ago. Still hear the music in my head sometimes! Epic game with an epic story line and sound track.
