Persona 5 Royal Reveals Fans’ Top 5 Favorite Phantom Thieves

Sega of America and Atlus recently published a video revealing Persona 5 Royal fans’ top five favorite Phantom Thieves ahead of the game’s launch for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch on October 21, 2022.

The following results were shared following a fan vote:

  1. Makoto – “Queen”
  2. Futaba – “Oracle”
  3. Ryuji – “Skull”
  4. Akechi – “Crow”
  5. Protagonist – “Joker”

Makoto’s always been popular since the original game’s release, so her placement doesn’t shock me. Although, I’m surprised Ann didn’t manage to make the cut.

The video unveiling these voted placements is viewable below:

Persona 5 Royal is releasing for PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Game Pass, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Windows and Steam on October 21, 2022. There is no planned upgrade path to PlayStation 5 for PlayStation 4 users.
