Here's how Persona 5 Royal's new character fits into the story

Meet Kasumi Yoshizawa

Part of the fun of the Persona series is meeting party members. Atlus has a way with characterization, and the joy of going through an everyday life event like school and running into someone you're going to be spending the next 80 hours with is a special feeling.

You'll be able to experience that all over again with Kasumi Yoshizawa, the new character in the enhanced Persona 5 Royal version coming later this year. Atlus gives us a closer look at how she'll spring onto the scene: quite literally as she rescues an errant balloon that slipped out of the hands of a child. Protagonist Joker and his disguised cat Morgana are there to witness the event. Atlus reminds us that the gymnast Kasumi is a freshman who started school the same year as Joker, which we can only assume will allow them to bond further.

Persona 5 Royal is out in Japan on October 31 of this year, followed by a 2020 release in the west. Right now it is only slated for PS4.
