Persona 5 is the game that keeps on giving for gamers. While it’s been out for well over two years, enthusiasm and discussion surrounding it seems to be as strong as ever, and that’s likely due in no short part to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s inclusion of Joker in the DLC lineup. And, what’s more, there’s an impending release of Persona 5 Royal, which is a beefed up version of the game that includes a new playable character, extra story content, new dungeons, and more.

The game already hit Japan this past October, and fans have been eager to see when we can expect it to hit Western shores. Well, we may have the answer to that question, thanks to good ol’ fashioned date leaks.

On both the Indonesian and Taiwanese versions of the PlayStation Store, Persona 5 Royal is listed for both English and Chinese versions. This would seem to hint at there being a release in English-speaking territories around the same time. Given that Thursday isn’t a common release date though, I’d expect the game to hit Western countries either a couple of days before or several days after Indonesia and Taiwan.

The big question here is…will that extra content be enough for you to double-dip on this one? Let us know your thoughts down below!
