This game would not be an RPG but something focused on the investigative skills of this key character in the history of Persona 5 Royal.
The universe of Persona 5 is far from over, according to a new rumor that ensures that we will see some new spin-off of the RPG that arrived in 2017. It is common for Atlus to launch extended versions -in this case Persona 5 Royal from 2020- and numerous alternative projects exploring different genres, as was the case with the musical rhythm game Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight or the action of Persona 5: Strikers . The new information ensures that there is at least one other game in the works.
The source is insider Zippo , who assures that one of the games that will celebrate the 25th anniversary of Persona is a spin-off starring Goro Akechi , one of the key characters in Persona 5 and especially Persona 5 Royal , where he delves deeper into the character and his social link. We are not going to reveal any spoilers about his role, but he is a young detective who collaborates with the police, and that would be precisely one of the keys to the game.
“We will have a lot more Persona announcements, ” the website says. Details are scant at the moment but their sources speak of a game that would not be an RPG but something focused on the adventures of this brilliant detective . A mystery visual novel ? After seeing multiple Persona games, such as the fighting of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax -which returns in a few days to new platforms- anything is possible.
