Persona 5 Royal takes an all-time great JRPG and makes it even greater. Going above and beyond a re-release or a remaster, almost everything has been expanded and improved with an entire game's worth of new content and improvements.

That being said, this game is long, I mean LONG. We're looking at a finishing time well over 100 hours if I include
