Going by the promotional art, the Persona 5 Royal cast chosen to be part of Alchemy Stars will be Joker (protagonist), Mona (Morgana), Violet (Kasumi Yoshizawa), Fox (Yusuke Kitagawa) and Queen (Makoto Nijima). With the Dragon Maid collaboration, the game didn’t really have a crossover story featuring the two disparate casts interacting with each other, so we’ll have to see if it will change for this. Likewise, we should stay tuned if the other Persona 5 Royal characters could still appear, even if not in a playable capacity.
With the precedent from Dragon Maid, expect two separate gacha banners with 2 6-star and 2 5-star characters each, and 1 4-star character available for free, besides whatever other log in bonuses and goodies that will be given out.
As it happens, some fans may be able to win themselves P5 Tarot Card Replicas, and official Alchemy Stars merchandise, or $10 gift cards.
Expect more news to come throughout the week as they reveal the character art and their skill sets / element and how the gacha pity system might be implemented.
