Persona 5 is a role-playing game. It’s chronologically made, that means the game is the sixth in the Persona series. Atlus develop the game, and it was released for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in 2016, Japan. It went worldwide in 2017.
Now the game is changing the name from Persona 5 R to Persona 5: The Royal.
The protagonist is Joker, the student from modern-day Tokyo, who had started a group of secret people named the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. In the new trailer, we have a new character, a female one. According to the translation, the girl is asked about the Phantom Thieves, and she answers that she doesn’t like them, even if helping people is a good thing to do. She believes that their methods won’t help anyone, because you can solve everything yourself.
So where is the connection with Smash Bros Ultimate?
A possible connection with Smash Bros Ultimate is from the founded text files by Dr. HypeCake. The text suggests of a girl with “pony-hair” named Jane and after that the name Jack. That information was shared on Twitter by Dr. HyperCake after he saw the new video from Atlus.
However, do we see a connection between Jane and the Joker?
Maybe Jane will be an assist trophy or part of Joker’s plan. Others speculate that Jane is another costume for Joker. But at the same time, Jane could only be a new character in the game and can have her own story.
Also, if you listen to her opinion, she isn’t a fan of the Phantom Thieves, so maybe she would not be part of the team.
Unfortunately, Persona 5: The Royal has not been confirmed for Switch, only for PlayStation 4. We have a chance to found more information on April 24, 2019.
