Good news for members of the Western Phandom of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts! All Persona 5 DLC’s will be free to anyone who purchases Persona 5 Royal! (For real?! Yes!)
News regarding the official Western release date of Persona 5 Royal, the highly anticipated enhanced version of the sixth title in the acclaimed Persona video game series, dropped this past Tuesday when Atlus (and many other sources) confirmed that the game would be released on March 31, 2020. Though the release date was different from what fans had originally been expecting, people were relieved to finally have a set date in place as to when they could experience all the glories of their favorite Phantom Thieves in actions again.
But the new title is not the only thing all Western Persona 5 Royal players have to look forward to. Atlus and PlayStation had another surprise in store that they announced through PlayStation’s official blog: all Western Persona 5 Royal players will receive all original Persona 5 DLC’s for free. This includes DLC’s of all additional costumes for the Phantom Thieves as well as the chance to summon personas from old Persona titles in Persona 5.
Fans’ reactions to this news have been mostly positive. While the five-month delay between the Japanese release date (October 31, 2019) and the Western release is not ideal, this bonus almost makes up for it.
However, some fans, who have already purchased the DLC content are, understandably, annoyed regarding the timing of this news.
The announcement came especially hard to fans who thought they had been frugal in their spending habits when purchasing the additional content during PlayStation’s recent Black Friday sale.
According to the announcement on PlayStation’s blog, it appears this content will only be available to players who pre-order the game. No confirmation yet on whether this bonus will be available to those who solely buy the physical copy of the game.
Atlus has also confirmed that Persona 5 Royal will have its own DLC content, which will be available as a separate purchase for those who are interested.
Persona 5 Royal will be released on March 31, 2020, for the PlayStation 4. The game is available for pre-order now.
