Persona 5 Royal has been released for PC, giving data miners the ability to discover previously cut content. Following its release on modern consoles, the PC version has left many fans excited to see the potential for data miners and modders.
A popular Twitter user, Face, was one of the first to post his findings online. Faz is well known among the Persona fanbase for digging deep into each game and noticing the little things. In some recent Twitter posts, he has shown off previously unused skins for a different Shibuya Scramble. There’s also an image showing different phone icons for the Phantom Thieves group chat, with Akechi being a Crow.
There’s also an image of an alpha version of the title screen in the thread. This photo is not finished but includes the main Phantom Thieves (excluding Akechi and Royal’s Kasumi). There is also a Joker with a different design, who wears a school uniform version of him or a very different phantom thief outfit while holding a gun.
After many years of the Persona series being locked to PlayStation consoles, Atlus recently revealed that it would be porting to all available modern consoles. During its recent celebration of 25 years of Persona, Atlus announced that Persona 3, 4, and 5 would be remastered for PlayStation 5, PC, Switch, and Xbox Series X|S. While Persona 5 Royal has already been released, Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden are still scheduled to come out on January 19 next year. Like Royal, they will also be included in Game Pass after launch.
Persona 5 Royal had only been available on PC for a few days when these discoveries were made, leading many to hope that more secrets would be released over time. Persona 5 Royal is a massive game that will require a lot of data, and the modders have already stated that they are hard at work creating their own new and unique content for PC gamers.
