Meet Kasumi, Persona 5 Royal’s Mysterious New Character

New trailer reveals info about Kasumi's background and showcases her rebellious Persona, Cendrillion

Persona 5 Royal is an all-new RPG experience — play as student at Shujin Academy and then transform into your alter-ego Phantom Thief in the Metaverse with a cast of nine other Phantom Thieves.

The newest member to join your crew is the mysterious gymnast, Kasumi!

The has been updated with Kasumi’s info! Read more about her here:

Kasumi Yoshizawa

Voice Actor: Laura Post

Kasumi is a transfer student who enrolls at Shujin Academy at the same time as the protagonist. Because she’s been an award-winning gymnast since middle school, Shujin Academy has high hopes for her future.

Her Metaverse costume was intentionally designed to mirror Joker’s style with her all black outfit and red gloves.

Personas are a version of your heart manifested. Her true rebellious nature is manifested in her Persona Cendrillion, who was inspired by the classic fairytale Cinderella’s nature.

As we get closer to release, the PlayStation.com page for Persona 5 Royal will be updated with these playable characters:

  • Protagonist (“Joker”)
  • Yusuke Kitagawa (“Fox”)
  • Ryuji Sakamoto (“Skull”)
  • Ann Takamaki (“Panther”)
  • Morgana (“Mona”)
  • Haru Okumura (“Noir”)
  • Makoto Niijima (“Queen”)
  • Futaba Sakura (“Oracle”)
  • Goro Akechi (“Crow”)

Join the Phantom Thieves and their next big heist on March 31 when Persona 5 Royal comes out for PlayStation 4! Visit for information, screenshots, and more info.

Ready to wear the mask? Who’s your favorite Phantom Thief? Mine is Yusuke because he loves lobsters just as much as I do. :)

  • Awesome Trailer! Really can’t wait to get my hands on this! Is there any reason why 4k support isn’t listed in the PlayStation.com page for this game. I heard from the Japanese release that it would support it on PS4 Pro. Is this true? All trailers are in 1080p.

    • Glad you are excited for the game :)

      Persona 5 Royal does support 4k on the PS4 Pro.

    • I was excited for the game but all the hate for it has gotten to me to the point where I’m gonna probably ignore the game for a while.

  • I’ve been waiting for this.

  • Great trailer. Can’t wait to play the game in a couple more months.

  • Preordered the collector’s edition already. By far one of my favorite games of all time. Cannot wait to see what new things are coming our way.

  • Day one buy. Got the Take Your Heart Edition for P5, so obviously doing the same again. The first time I beat Persona 5, it had a profound effect on me. Went through a couple months of emptiness – until I started Bloodborne.

    Looking forward to revisiting some of my favourite characters. Ryuji best boi!

  • please fix the pre order date on the ps store. it says the game will come out on December 31 2020 instead of march.

  • I won’t be paying 60 dollars for it that’s for sure. Fanboy milking at it’s finest.

    • Definitely. I love P5, an absolutely solid game but with way too much exploitative DLC. They of course did this with P4, but at least P4G was a different platform. If they offered owners of digital P5 a discount for what is essentially an update, even if big, it wouldn’t make it look so quite bad at fanboy milking.

  • I’m looking forward to it. I somehow managed to Platinum the base game in two playthroughs without any outside assistance. Still, the game felt shorter than both P3 and P4, so having more story to make things flow is welcome. I just hope that I will have the time and money to actually enjoy it upon its release, this time. This is a busy year for good games.
