Persona 5 Royal is shaping up as the definitive game in the popular JRPG series, as DLC for the upgraded version of Persona 5 will introduce the protagonists of 2006’s Persona 3 and 2008’s Persona 4 to the game.
Persona 3‘s Makoto and Persona 4‘s Yu, as they are named in the anime adaptations and spinoffs, will not be joining the Phantom Thieves of Hearts though.
According to the final Morgana Report, they will be added to Persona 5 Royal as boss fights.
Makoto and Yu will be added as DLC to Persona 5 Royal, where they can be challenged by players in the Velvet Room.
It appears that the matches will not be easy though, as Yu is shown in the video dealing significant damage with a lightning attack by his Persona, Izanagi.
It remains unclear what players will get from beating the protagonists of the two previous games in the series.
