Two years ago, the Phantom Thieves stole the hearts of millions of fans around the world. Now, they’re getting ready to make their triumphant return in Persona 5 Royal, an enhanced release of ATLUS’s acclaimed JRPG Persona 5.

The new character is called Kasumi, who is a new female heroin who enters Shujin Academy the same spring that the protagonist transfers in. She’s been an award-winning rhythmic gymnast since middle school and Shujin Academy has high hopes for her future. She likes the protagonist but rejects the Phantom Thieves. It’s not known whether she will be an enemy or an ally, but I hope she is a ally.
The second new character is Takuto Maruki who is a part-time school counsellor that was employed after the April incident with a certain teacher, out of concern for the students. The students seem to be admire him, because he’s a good listener and gives useful advice.
