Persona owners disappointed they have to buy the game twice | The Sun

THOSE who own Persona 5 Royal on PlayStation 4 will not be eligible for a free or discounted version of the game when it releases on PlayStation 5.

Atlus recently announced that its award-winning game Persona 5 Royal will be available this year on multiple platforms.

The game is an upgraded version of Persona 5 which was originally released simultaneously for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in 2016.

The Royal version was released exclusively for PlayStation 4 owners in 2020, and features a new protagonist, and an extra semester of school.

Earlier this year, in a group of various announcements, Atlus revealed that the game, which was nominated for game of the year, would be re-released on various platforms.

Various platforms and hardware including PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PlayStation 5, would all receive a port.

Those who already own the PlayStation 4 version were hoping that they would get a free upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version upon release.

This would follow in the footsteps of popular games such as Horizon Forbidden West and Nioh 2 which allow players access to both PlayStation versions at no extra cost.

However, Atlus has confirmed via a Q&A section on its Japanese website that those wishing to upgrade will have to pay for the game at full price.

“Will those who own the PS4 version of Persona 5 Royal be able to upgrade to the PS5 version?”

To which Atlus responded,

“We are terribly sorry, but those who own Persona 5 Royal on PS4 will not receive any bonuses.

“We hope that those who wish to play Persona 5 Royal on PS5, will purchase the PS5 version separately.”

Atlus have not confirmed whether there will be any improvements to the ports over the original PS4 version.
