A new trailer for Persona 5 Royal’s Western release dropped Monday, focusing on the Phantom Thieves and their newest member, Kasumi Yoshizawa.

The trailer showcases some new gameplay footage as well as the game’s Showtime Attacks and its returning English cast.

Check it out below:

Laura Post will be the stateside voice for Kasumi, a mysterious gymnast who transfers to Shujin Academy around the same time the protagonist gets there.

Persona 5 Royal is a remixed version of the original Persona 5, adding new story content, characters, gameplay features, locations to visit, and extra time on the calendar (and apparently less sleeping too). All told, there is expected to be around 30 hours of additional content in Royal compared to the base game, which is impressive considering that it isn’t uncommon for playthroughs in the original P5 to surpass 100 hours.

Persona 5 Royal will launch in the West on March 31 for the PlayStation 4. In a series first, it was announced last month that the game will come equipped with a full EFIGS localization, providing subtitles for the game in French, Italian, Spanish and German to go along with its English dub.

The original version of Persona 5, released in Japan in 2016 and in the West in 2017, was both critically and commercially acclaimed. The game received numerous Best RPG awards and even Game of the Year nominations back when it first launched, and has since sold over three million copies. Personally speaking, I even named it my Game of the Decade for proving that turn-based RPGs still very much have a place in today’s gaming landscape.
