Persona 5 Royal PS4 Owners Won’t Be Able to Upgrade to PS5

Persona 5 Royal, an enhanced version of the acclaimed game with new content, will release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S in October 2022 (the game was released on PS4 in 2019).

However, contrary to what has happened with many releases on PlayStation consoles, there will be no upgrade that allows you to move from the PS4 version to the PS5 version. This information is present on the FAQ section of Persona 5’s website and, despite being originally in Japanese, it says the following:

We are sorry, but there are no products for PlayStation 4 purchasers of Persona 5 Royal for this title,” reads the translation. “We would appreciate it if you could purchase Persona 5 Royal for PlayStation 5, when you play the game on PlayStation 5.

Therefore, following this information, you will not be able to purchase the PS4 version of Persona 5 Royal on your PS5 and then upgrade to the latest PlayStation console version.

It is important to point out that the differences between the PS4 version and the PS5 version of Persona 5 Royal will probably be minor, without going too far. It’s up to you to see if it seems necessary to reinvest a few tens of dollars (the price has not yet been communicated) and enjoy it in 4K/60 FPS. The creators will most likely use the unique options of the new consoles, so we should expect SSD support, 3D sound, or DualSense controller functions.

Recall that Persona 5 Royal will release on October 21 on PC (Windows and Steam), Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch. Are you looking forward to this game?
