Seeing the Persona 5 Royal system requirements is a dream come true for those of us that never imagined the acclaimed JRPG would ever come to Windows, let alone sit on Xbox Game Pass for PC. Better still, changing hearts probably won’t put too much stress on your gaming PC, as the anime game runs on some pretty tame specs. It’s even the perfect Steam Deck companion.

In what seems like a rarity these days, the developers at Atlus let us know exactly what to expect from the Persona 5 Royal system requirements. Targeting the minimum will net you a respectable 60fps at 720p, but you’ll be stuck on low settings. Bumping things up to the recommended specs, however, means you’ll push the same frame rate at full HD on high settings.

There isn’t a great deal of difference between the minimum and recommended Persona 5 Royal specs, as both ask for 41GB of storage space, 8GB of RAM, and the same gaming CPU. You won’t need the best graphics card to crank things up as high as they’ll go, either, as the game runs great on decade-old entry-level GPUs. If you’ve upgraded your gaming PC in the past five years, the chances are you won’t have any issue seeing a silky smooth Tokyo.

Persona 5 landed on Steam and Xbox Games Pass on October 21, 2022 with over 40 bits of DLC in addition to the base game. It doesn’t come with any specific PC tech like Nvidia DLSS, AMD FSR, or Nvidia Reflex, but it doesn’t really need a helping hand to run well.

Persona 5 is Steam Deck Verified, complete with full controller support and none of the issues that plagued Persona 4 Golden when Valve’s handheld gaming PC first came out. The turn-based gameplay and cell shaded graphics lend well to the portable format, keeping your frame rate as stylishly smooth as the Phantom Thieves of Hearts themselves.
