Fafnir is famous for appearing previous Shin Megami Tensei titles.
Along with new interactions, characters and enemies, Atlus’s Persona 5 Royal will also have new Personas. Each character gets a new Persona or two but it seems that a series’ favourite will be joining the cast. Fafnir has been announced as appearing and he’ll be a Strength Arcana Persona.
Fafnir will be familiar to fans of previous Shin Megami Tensei games. Interestingly, his last appearance in a Persona title was with Persona 2: Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment from the PlayStation One era. So technically, this will be his first appearance in a more contemporary title.
Persona 5 Royal is out on October 31st for PS4 in Japan. It will release in Spring 2020 for the West. Recently, Atlus shared a trailer highlighting protagonist Joker along with his new interactions with Justine and Caroline among others. Check it out here. The developer will also be sharing some new information on its Musou-style Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers on October 24th so stay tuned for more information.
