At this point in time, it’s hard to tell. Maybe after a few more JP trailers or even an English one.
Canon to the original p5
I’m pretty sure it’s confirmed to be a canon sequel to Persona 5
I’m pretty sure the game is a direct continuation of the original Persona 5 story and until another spin off like an Arena game or what not comes out we are still unsure if Persona 5 or Persona 5 Royal is the canonical storyline though like P4G Royal will probably become the canon story
The Arena games are still canon, just so we're all on the same page, even around 4G. There's no reason to assume that 5S won't be canon because of 5R. Heck, Kasumi even came with a nice little way to write herself out of the story, so it's not even inconvenient to make it canon.
I think it’s what Persona 4 Arena is to Persona 4 except instead of 4, it’s 5. Basically, it’s probably a canon sequel to the original game.
What do you think?
