Persona 5 IMG1

Persona 5 R is now officially known as Persona 5: The Royal, after a short teaser commercial for the upcoming PlayStation 4 game aired during the latest episode of the animated series.

While there was no mention of the new Atlus game being released on the Nintendo Switch, there is believed to be a link between this latest trailer and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Last month, dataminer Dr. HyperCake discovered a text string in Ultimate referencing “Jane” with “pony_hair” and “Jack” (allegedly the code name for the DLC character Joker).

View the latest Persona 5 trailer below and you’ll notice it features a mysterious female with what is being described as a “ponytail” hairstyle. There's now speculation this could be an alternate costume for Joker in Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Joker is expected to arrive in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate before the end of April. The next information about Persona 5: The Royal will be shared on 24th April at the Persona Super Live 2019 concert.
