Persona 5 Royal has a new Kasumi trailer and a limited ‘Straight Flush’ edition

Persona 5 Royal - Kasumi

Atlus has just dropped a new trailer for Persona 5 Royal, featuring the game’s latest Phantom Thief, Kasumi Yoshizawa.

Although the trailer is in Japanese, it still manages to showcase Kasumi’s personality. We get a peek into her interactions with the main character through some gag scenes and being generally adorable.

We also got to see Kasumi’s in-game awakening and a first-look at her persona, Cendrillion. Incidentally, ‘Cendrillion’ is a French opera based off of Cinderella. Considering how personas are tied to the individual’s psyche, this little sneak footage does give us a clue to Kasumi’s inner working and motivations . Besides that, we also get to see her ‘All-Out Attack’ victory animation, showing off the new member’s gymnastic background.

Atlus knows how popular the game’s music is as well, so they’ve treated us to a new Persona 5 Royal track playing in the background. Check it all out in the trailer below!

With the new trailer comes new package information. You can now find details for the Japanese ‘Straight Flush’ limited edition on the Japanese P5R website, giving us an inkling of what the global edition might feature.
