The rating comes with an addition for violence.
Atlus is in full swing with marketing for Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. The spin-off is a combination of the popular Persona 5 with the Warriors mousu gameplay style. But for us westerners, the wait is still on for the enhanced version of Persona 5. The wait is getting closer seemingly as it’s already being rated in some regions with the outback getting one of the first western ones.
The rating for Persona 5 Royal popped up via the official Australian rating board, which you can see through here. Interestingly, the rating is largely the same (MA 15+), but it has been bumped up additionally for violence from the original Persona 5.
Persona 5 Royal has been available in Japan for PlayStation 4 since last month, but will come out sometime in 2020 outside the region. We know an announcement of some kind for the game on December 3rd and with ratings already surfacing it makes it more likely that the release date is coming soon.
