‘Persona 5 R’ Revealed to Be ‘Persona 5: The Royal’

Back in December, Atlus released a brief trailer teasing the existence of a brand new project involving Persona 5. No real information was given of course, but fans at least got the project’s code name, “Persona 5 R” to chew on until the next bit of info dropped sometime in March. Well, that time finally…

Sonic’s Getting a Live Action Movie
