Due to the fact that the game can be played on multiple different consoles, fans have one pressing question. Can the safe file be converted from one platform to the other?

So what about the PS4 and PS5 users, what are they supposed to do? Many PlayStation users had lost hope of transferring their files and had accepted their fate. Until a Reddit user, u/Deadex64 opened pandora’s box. Now we finally have a way to transfer Persona 5 Royal from PlayStation 4 or 5 to Steam.

Let us briefly look into how to transfer your Persona 5 Royal. 

The first and most important step would be to get the Save Wizard MAX tool. After that according to the source players will have to get the save file from their PlayStation consoles. This can be done by going to the system setting of the console.

The USB should then be plugged into the PC to extract the files after which the Save Wizard will be opened. To decrypt the files Python 3.10 prompts will be used. These will include python -m pip install -r requirements.txt and python convert. 

After these prompts have been successfully executed Persona 5 Royal can be run on steam.

Fans have been over the moon about this development. One fan says that they feel very lucky to have come across this hack and can not wait to try it out themselves. Others have been thanking the Reddit user profusely calling him their savior. 

While some fans do have their reservations. The save wizard MAX tool is in fact very pricey. It is currently USD 60. While there is a USD 50 save wizard tool also available. However, it does not have the decrypt option.

Fans claim that this is a ridiculously large sum to pay for a one-time transfer for Persona 5 Royal. One such user comments, That was one of the things holding me back. I’d buy P5R now with NG+ but $60 is steep for a one time transfer. Maybe someone will create a cheaper version?

Another user mirrored similar concerns and said, Before I drop the cash on the Save Wizard MAX, does this process work with the game pass version as well? Most of the game pass versions seem to use some odd save files since they co-mingle with the Xbox versions.”
