Months after the game’s release on the PS4, 16.7% of Persona 5 Royal players have earned the game’s platinum trophy. With this record, Persona 5 Royal now has the highest Platinum trophy completion rate among major PS4 exclusives.
The game’s high rate of Platinum completion is impressive, especially when compared to the original Persona 5, where only 2.6% of players got the Platinum trophy. It should be noted though that Persona 5 Royal’s Platinum trophy is much easier to achieve, as players can actually get all of the game’s trophies in just one playthrough.
While fairly easy to achieve, the Persona 5 Royal Platinum trophy is far from a cakewalk; after all, the game is a 100+ hour RPG. The high Platinum completion rate of the game does imply that the game’s players are a dedicated bunch.
For reference, here are the Platinum completion rates of several PS4 exclusives and major timed exclusives (as of this article’s writing):
- Concrete Genie – 13%

Among major PS4 exclusives, only Concrete Genie and Ghost of Tsushima are close to Persona 5 Royal’s Platinum rate, likely because the Platinum trophies for the said games are easy to achieve as well.
What’s surprising though is the fact that Nioh 2 and Bloodborne have fairly high Platinum completion rates. Even though both games are incredibly difficult, it seems that fans of the games are more likely to complete their respective Platinum trophies compared to “blockbuster” PS4 exclusives such as God of War or The Last of Us Part II.
Another interesting thing about the Platinum completion rates of PS4 titles is that newer games tend to have Platinum trophies that are easier to get. While there are some exceptions to this, easier Platinum trophies may be trend for PlayStation titles moving forward. Given this, we wouldn’t be surprised if some PS5 titles get even higher Platinum trophy completion rates than Persona 5 Royal.
