Buried within the depths of Gamescom 2022 is some new footage of Persona 5 Royal on Xbox Series X! Atlus and SEGA have shown a good chunk of gameplay here as the game moves over to Xbox in October, which includes a Game Pass launch.
The clip has been pulled from a Japanese livestream, with a full 25 minutes of gameplay showing us quite a bit of P5R before its Xbox release. We're intrigued to see how this one performs on Xbox platforms, as it's now been out for over two years on PlayStation 4.
Back when Xbox revealed that Persona 5 Royal would be hitting Game Pass day one, the company also let us know that Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden will be hitting the service in 2023. JRPG fans, rejoice!
How's this one looking? Excited to play it on Xbox? Let us know in the comments.
Xbox fans, brace yourselves. That's one great game right here. I really liked my time with it on PS5. Style combined with substance, a rare thing these days in gaming.
@gollumb82 I couldn't worded it better!
And one of the best soundtracks of all time to boot!
I'm happy more and more people can experience this gem.
It's sequel, P5 Strikers, is just as amazing.. although quite a bit shorter.
Forgot to add that, but you're right! Last Surprise was my ringtone for quite some time 🙂
Tried to get into the Persona games in the past but just couldn't. Depending on how long it is I'll see if I can get into this one. Roughly 30 hours or so is my sweet spot for RPGS, but I'm sure this'll be pushing 60 which gets to be long in the tooth for me these days.
Persona 5 is somewhere close to 100 hours to complete. However, it's far from becoming stale and keeps throwing new things at you. Believe me, I'm like you. I avoid open worlds and games riddled with filler and/or fetch quests. Same with very long games. When I was playing P5 I never experienced boredom or fatigue.
I'm 40 or so hours in to P5 Royal (PS5). This is my first experience with a Persona game and I am a total convert. It's outstanding in every respect. As a kid who moved around a lot when I was a kid, P5 does a great job at capturing the "new kid" at school feel. I could say a lot more, but suffice it to say, Xbox fans are in for a treat.
@gollumb82 since I grew up on the SNES and ps1 RPGS those will always be my sweetspot. I especially love the SNES Final Fantasy games, Chrono Trigger ect because they felt like the perfect length. Even if they dont have boring fetch quests or stuff like that, 100 hours for a game would take me months and months to complete due to time, so thats why i rarely start those games these days. The absolute max I push is 50, but playing the witcher 3 years ago (which is by all accounts a lot of peoples' favorite game) was really tough when I was getting to 70. The game in general just usually gets to be a chore. Tales of Arise and Triangle Strategy are probably my favorite ones in the last few years, and those were 40-50 so i could handle that. Probably why I'll never play the Xenoblade games, I hear those are 100 hours as well. Just too long for me.
Still haven't finished regular P5 on... PS3! (actually played some last week).
I get you. With two jobs, a wife and daughter my gaming time is shrinking, but I've decided to die with a huge backlog before I quit gaming haha. Still, I absolutely see where you're coming from and this game is probably not for you. HOWEVER, it'll be on Game Pass so... No harm in checking it out eh? 😁 Ok, I'll see myself out. But that was how I tried it myself (PS Plus). I never would have played it otherwise.
Not a fan of jrpg or turn based combat
Persona 5 is incredible. Any Xbox player who like their RPG’s is in for an absolute treat if they’ve never played this.
Last year Ive become more and more a fan of jrpgs and it was one of the reasons I bought a ps5. Seeing more jrpgs coming to Xbox is great. I prefer to chose where to play a game and seeing more jrpg coming to Xbox gives me that choice. Even though I already own it on Ps5 I'm going to play it on Xbox, just to show I want more jrpg on there. And I know 1 person won't change a thing but you know I like to think it does at least a tiny bit
@gollumb82 Yup. my backlog would grow exponentially getting through that game because it really would take me probably 2 months at least to finish, and with Plague Tale Requiem, Gotham Knights, and High on Life this fall/winter those will be shorter and easier to get through. And I am absolutely the type of person that cannot play multiple games at the same time. I NEED to finish one game first then move to the next, I don't know how people switch back and fourth between multiple games. everything else gets waited on until I finish what I started.
Couldn't agree more. I usually play one main plot-heavy game and one light and easy game as a palate cleanser (sports games or puzzle games come to mind). Don't know how guys like @LtSarge manage 4-5 games haha. I read his posts at WAYP every weekend and I get dizzy just thinking about it.
I've already bought P5 (collectors TYH Edition) on PS4, and then P5R again on PS4......and haven't actually started it yet. And now the enhanced edition has no upgrade path and they want a full $60 again on PS to get the minor improvements..........definitely playing on Game Pass and probably never touching the two versions I own, lol.
My most wanted game this year. Never played a Persona or any other Atlas RPG before.
I'm really looking forward to this. Will start is as soon as i wrap up the Halloween games
Already have the day one ps4 steelcase version but I'll play this again on my series x 😃
@J_Mo_Money Soul Hackers might be more your game, it takes around 30 hours to finish, more streamlined exp from Persona but keep Persona and SMT style and game design
@Darylb88 yeah, i saw that game came out recently and it doesnt look too bad.
@J_Mo_Money Already completed the game twice and can confidently say its the best jrpg I've ever played and definitely the most stylish. Will take you between 100-120 hours to complete depending on your difficulty settings and how invested you are in your social links. If you just want to do the main story then take off about 30 hours, and easy mode will reduce your time even less.
Plus later on in the game depending on your level you can auto defeat enemies just by running into them and you still get xp and money doing that.
@gollumb82 Haha well I'm honestly in a phase right now where I don't really feel like playing a single game like I've been mostly doing during the first half of this year. I kinda get easily bored now, so I try to switch things up as much as I can.
Hoping for a physical release
This is a new treat for me. Although my time is not unlimited, many of the games I've enjoyed the most are long and I really enjoyed them once I learnt the mechanics and got used to controls and gameplay so, as long as they're good, being long isn't a problem. There are many games I've missed and some I'll probably never play but I have to deal with that and enjoy other things as well.
I'll definitely play this title sooner or later on Series X. I almost bought this for PS4 but different problems like console noise and cramps after holding the Dual Shock 4 for over an hour made me wait to see if it was coming to Xbox eventually.
@Banjo- I know right? The Dual Shock 4 was so uncomfortable
Anyway, a friend lent me the vanilla P5. I didn't finished it, and I wanted to buy the P5R on PS4.
Glad I didn't, this will be a blast on GP.
@HarmanSmith It is uncomfortable, indeed. I'm happy to enjoy this on Game Pass, too! I played Octopath Traveller on Game Pass, not knowing if I'd like it and I really enjoyed my 128-hour playthrough.
