Atlus’ major JRPG series, Persona, has recently been given a new release. In Persona 5, players once again embark on an adventure with a cast of characters who, over the course of a school year, awaken to the power of their Personas. It’s a huge game and one that you’ll want to be playing constantly. As such, many players will be hoping that the title will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch.
Is Persona 5 Coming to Nintendo Switch?
Yes, Persona 5 is coming to the Nintendo Switch in the form of Persona 5 Royal. This was announced during the June 2022 Nintendo Direct Mini focused on third-party games coming to the Nintendo Switch.
Persona 5 Royal will release on Nintendo Switch on October 21, 2022.
During the announcement, it was also revealed that Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden would also be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Both Persona 4 Golden and Persona 3 Portable don’t yet have release dates and are currently slated as just ‘Coming Soon.’ At least you’ll have Persona 5 Royal to keep you busy in the meantime.
What Is Persona 5 Royal?
The Royal version of the game includes the entire base game, but also throws in some additional content such as a new character and party member called Kasumi, an entirely new school semester with a new Palace which both expand the story, and a new ‘Thieves Den’ feature where you can visit a room filled with bonus content from the pause menu.
There’s also new locations, new animated cutscenes, Personas, enemies, weapons… you get the point. It’s essentially the ‘Complete’ or ‘Uncut’ edition of the game, giving you even more content to sink your teeth into.
