Persona 5 Royal Story
The story of Persona 5 Royal has so much to offer. Just like Persona 4, it takes an average of 100 hours to complete the whole main story and another 25 hours to do the extras / side activities. It is almost impossible not to spoil the story so we'll try our best by just giving you an overview of the plot.
What is the main story of Persona 5 Royal?
Persona 5 is a story about the Phantom Thieves. Joker, Morgana and the gang are trapped in a shadow realm (Palace), where their actions have an impact on the real world.
The group uses a mysterious power - using Personas to seize the hearts of their enemies and make them better people or willing to surrender to the police.
Persona 5's story is divided into chapters that are basically different targets for the Phantom Thieves. Although their enemies are small, it doesn't take long before some of them become significant figures throughout the game.
Despite all the drama surrounding the Phantom Thieves, there are also random murders taking place across Japan, where a person will die out of the blue. It is up to players to discover how this intertwines with the main characters' fate and what their stories are.
You start out by trying to infiltrate an exclusive society at school where the worst bullies are, but after being discovered by one of them, you're forced to steal some money from your uncle's friend in order to pay for your crime. The friend turns out to be corrupt, however, and uses the money for blackmailing purposes instead of paying off his debt.
At this point, you decide it's time for a change—you want people to know what it feels like when they're being bullied or abused by someone with power over them. So you start targeting people who are rich and powerful but also cruel or corrupt in order to make them feel helpless and powerless just like everyone else has felt before.
