Maybe it is more accurate to say Morgana highlights the new content available, while Kasumi provides the hype. Regardless, the video does touch on some questions newcomers will certainly want to know. This includes explanations of Personas, the Phantom Thieves, Palaces, and Confidants. While the commentary treads some familiar ground for those who have played Persona 5 previously, it does show some of the new Confidants and Personas.

The video also goes to some unfamiliar territory, including Kichijoji, a new part of the city for Joker to explore during the day and night time. It also shows the Thieves Den. Essentially, it is a hub that contains all of the extra content including awards, a gallery, music, and a card game.

Persona 5 Royal is a JRPG by Atlus. It is a re-release of the critically acclaimed game Persona 5, bringing a few changes and new features to the game. This includes Kasumi, a new playable character that was not originally in the initial release.
