While we're still eagerly waiting for Breath of the Wild 2, it seems like that wait is about to become that much easier: Persona 5 Royal is headed to the Nintendo Switch, and since it's the perfect game for a portable device, I personally couldn't be more hyped.
[Update, June 28, 2022]
Persona 5 to be Released on Nintendo Switch
At Nintendo Direct Mini on June 28, 2022 we finally got confirmation that Persona 5 is headed to the Nintendo Switch. There have been rumors floating around, but nothing had been confirmed, so this is a breath of fresh air to know such a fun game is coming to the best portable device.
Persona 4 Golden and Person 3 Also Coming to the Switch
Not only is the fifth game of the Persona series going to be playable on the Nintendo Switch, but the fourth and third edition of the game will also be ported onto the Nintendo Switch for anyone who wants to have the whole collection.
First we get Kingdom Hearts on the Switch and now Persona? Sounds all too good to be true. Pinch yourself and you'll realize that this is happening and reality.
When Will the Games be Available on the Switch?
At Nintendo Direct Mini it was revealed that Persona 5 Royal, the newest of the JRPG series will be the first to be ported to the Nintendo Switch and will be available as soon as October 21, 2022. For Persona 4 and 3 you'll have to be a bit more patient and wait until 2023 to have them on your Nintendo Switch.
Persona 5 Coming to Nintendo Switch
How do we know this? Well, this time it's a good old listing error: This German retailer listed Persona 5 Royal for the Niintendo Switch. The timing sure is convenient, since we're expecting a new Nintendo Direct to take place at the end of the month. If that Nintendo Direct does happen, we can be sure to hear more about Persona 5 coming to the Swith then.
If you're not familiar with Persona 5 Royal, it's essentially an enhanced version of Persona 5, and Persona 5 is one hell of a game. Persona 5 basically got 9s and 10s across the board, and is one of the best RPGs of all time. Easily. Unless you don't like anime... in which case this game isn't for you, because it's basically an interactive anime.
Of course, as always there's the question of whether or not the Switch can even the handle the game. Persona 5 Royal is a big game, and the Switch isn't exactly the most powerful of consoles. Who knows, maybe we'll get a reveal of the rumored Switch successor at the end of the month, and Persona 5 is one of its launch titles.
