Persona 5 Royal, one of the best JRPGs of all time, is finally out on PC in some regions. Previously ATLUS released Persona 4 Golden and Shin Megami Tensei 3 Nocturne HD Remaster on Steam as well. The PC port of Persona 5 Royal runs very well and features many PC features you’d expect. For some users, though, there are a few technical issues, and some of those are tied to Windows as well. If you’re running into the Persona Royal 5 Blurry visuals issue, here is how you can fix that.

Fixing the Persona 5 Royal blurry visuals issue

Multiple users have reported that they can’t seem to run the game at resolutions higher than 1080p, resulting in poor and blurry visuals on higher resolutions. This can be incredibly distracting and can make the game look way worse than it should. This is tied to how DPI scaling works for certain titles, and here is how you can fix that.

First, to access the game’s directory, here is how you can locate your game files.

Steam

  • Open Steam and then your library
  • Here, right-click on Persona 5 Royal
  • Click Manage
  • Then select Browse local files
Manage > Browse local files
Browse local files

Xbox App

  • Launch the Xbox App
  • On the left, under INSTALLED, click on the three dots next to Persona 5 Royal
  • Select Manage
Manage button in Xbox App
Manage in Xbox App
  • Select the FILES tab, and then click on BROWSE
Browse game files through Xbox App by clicking this button
Manage in Xbox App

This will take you to the location Persona 5 Royal is installed in for either Steam or Xbox PC App.

  • Right-click on P5R.exe and select Properties
  • Click the Compatibility tab
Compatability > Change high DPI settings
Change high DPI settings
  • Select Change high DPI Settings
High DPI scaling override > Override high DPI scaling behavior > Application
Override high DPI scaling behavior

After you’re done with this, you’ll be able to play Persona 5 Royal at the proper desired resolution. A few ports in the past few years had this issue as well, and we hope that the developers address this somehow in a patch soon.
