Persona 5 and Persona 5 Royal were for the longest time only available on PS4. The game boosted a lot of new features and was easily one of the best new Persona games that fans got to play in a very long time. Unfortunately, it looks like players with PS4 saves will have to start over on PS5 as it won’t be possible to share saves with your Personal 5 Royal PS5 Save.
Personal 5 Royal is coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series, PC and Nintendo Switch for the first time since its initial release in 2017 and the release of Royal in 2019 for PS4.
Many fans are no doubt ecstatic that console exclusivity is taking nearly half a decade to arrive and end, but fans looking to enjoy a smooth ride from PS4 to PS5 will be thoroughly disappointed.
If you currently own a PS5 and had a substantial PS4 library, you would be familiar with how there is support for the ability to transfer your saves and trophies between the two consoles. Unfortunately, it looks like Persona 5 Royal on PS5 won’t be using this feature.
Here’s the full image below:
This effectively means that you will not be able to transfer your progress or be able to unlock trophies in the game. This means that you will have to play Persona 5 Royal on PS5 with a clean slate.
While a lot of first-party and third-party developers made the feature allow players to make saves between the two consoles, Atlus may hit a nerve with fans when the game releases later in October 2022.
Persona 5 Royal is coming to Nintendo Switch, PC, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series on October 21st, with the title also coming to GamePass.
