Shin Megami Tensei / Persona News

I was meant to post this yesterday:

 

Is Persona 5 coming to Switch?

 

Quote

The news that Persona 5's Joker is headed to Smash Bros. Ultimate as a DLC character has naturally sparked predictable chatter that Persona 5 itself is Switch-bound, but we've actually heard a rumour that appears to have some substance to it.

 

The source is MysticDistance, a translator and secondary writer for Persona Central and several other fan sites. MysticDistance has stated that Persona 5 will hit Switch next year, and the announcement will take place the day Joker becomes available in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

 

Rather than being a straight port, the Switch version will have a new title and will come with a raft of adjustments and additions, as well as new story elements. While we're not sure how reliable MysticDistance's source is, it is claimed that a Switch port has been under consideration since last year, and that the final title will be based on one of the domains recently registered by Atlus.

 

This would suggest something related to P5U.jp or P5R.jp, two domains snapped up by the company that have yet to be assigned to anything. Nintendo Soup is reporting that Persona 5 Reloaded is the official title.

 

I could see a Persona 5 Golden type thing happening.  Atlus have a history of updating their Persona games and making handheld versions.

 

I still haven't finished it.  Got stuck on the boss that definitely isn't Japanese Donald Trump.

I definitely think a P5: Golden would do very well on the Switch.

 

I definitely wouldn’t double dip as it’s a mammoth game and was a right slog towards the end but hope Switch players get to experience it.

I just want to hear more about SMTV

 

It's one of the exclusives that sold the Switch to me, the other one being BOTW.

 

I wonder why it's taking them this long to show some stuff. I much prefer recruiting an army of demons and fusing them over only being able to swap a single persona.

If Persona 5 comes to the Switch in ‘Golden’ form I would 100% play it again.

 

As long as they don’t remove the flu season/grim reaper exploit because fuck legitimately levelling in that game!

 

Also some SMTV news would be lovely, it’s been too long since we heard anything.

Yeah I think I’d play persona 5 again too, especially if it had new stuff in there, maybe not quite yet mind, give it a few years.

I’m guessing a spin-off for Switch. 

 

Did you watch the trailer? Big ol' PlayStation logo right at the start 😂

Lol. I missed that, actually. I just saw that it said new projects. But the chance of a sequel? Unlikely. The dancing game already came out. It’s either a spin off or a FES type thing. I think spin off.

Announcements for announcements need to get in the bin.

Hmm...I wonder if it’ll be like FES where there’s an extra story mode but where you get to play as this girl instead? 

 

I really liked Persona 5 but I have no intentions of playing it twice. Persona is probably neck and neck favourite RPG series along with Pokemon but every game is a one time deal for me

 

But maybe that isn’t that so I don’t know

So Royal sounds like it is closer to Golden than FES and the Persona 5 S will be a Switch version presumably?

Still crossing my fingers for a release on literally any other platform.

 

New character looks cool though, some Mitsuru vibes coming from her.

Not busty enough to be Mitsuru. More like Yukari died her hair red. 

 

I still really like the Persona games but there is a distinct lack of people blowing their brains out in these later ones
