I'm more inclined to play this than the actual Persona 5 game.

If there is already a Persona rhythm game, it should not be surprising there will be a Dynasty Warriors-like game.

Ha ha ha ha ha damn this is such a troll! Amazing job Atlus, I can rub these nintendo port beggars my persona 5 royal copy.

Funny they port a musou game to switch. The Fire Emblem game barely runs at a stable frame rate, and is ugly to look too.

Persona themed Dynasty Warriors? Meh!

I'd rather play Fire Emblem Warriors on Switch!

Awww. Well that’s pretty disappointing. While I do enjoy these Dynasty Warrior type games this isn’t what I was hoping for.

I would have rather had a fighting game like P4A but with some P5 characters added.

Whatever. I know there's a huge audience for these types of games though.

A new game is better news. Like @mazuiface, i wanted it to be a fighting game. This is ok though.

@X_CAPCOM_X: There's still hope for a new Persona fighting game. There's P5M and P5B which haven't been announced. Arc sys is super busy right now. Persona's style with Xrd style sprites would go perfectly together.

Well, it's not the Persona 5 port we had hoped for but I'll keep an open mind for this one. Fire Emblem and Hyrule Warriors are both fun, so this may scratch a similar itch.

Well, they aren't totally ignoring the Switch - they're making Shin Megami Tensei 5 exclusively for it.

Still, Atlus is either extremely blind to popular demand, or Sony has paid them to keep Persona 5 as an exclusive. There's a huge pile of money on the table, and they're ignoring all of it.

First of all, the game is 2 years old and it has done phenomenally well - if you really wanted to play it, you could get it.

Atlus has always been particular about which platform certain series are released on. Persona 3 was on PS2 in 2008, and Persona 4, released in 2010, was still on PS2. Even Persona 5 R will be released on PS4 in the west probably around the time of the PS5 release.

This is the same way SMT always releases on Nintendo platforms (namely the 3DS lately). SMTV is going to be a Switch exclusive. If they port Persona games, I think it would be fair game for them to port all of the SMT and Persona games to PC (maybe even SMT on PS4) as well, but I'm not over here begging for ports.

EDIT: I am also a little salty that I have to wait until 2020 TBA for P5R.

Persona 5 is actually getting close to 3 years old now - it was released on the PS3 in September 2016.

Anyway, I'm not port begging - I've already played it on my PS4. I've even lent my PS4 to someone for the past few months so that they can play it.

Still, the game would he perfect for the Switch (in the same way that P4G was perfect for the Vita), and if I have to replay the game to see the Royal content, I'd grealy prefer to play it on my Switch (rather than dusting off my PS4 in 2020).

I also just think it's a really poor move for Atlus to keep each subseries exclusive to a different platform, especially when there's already a Persona 5 spinoff that's exclusive to a Nintendo platform (Persona Q2), and when Sony isn't releasing a new handheld anytime soon.

Atlus probably does not realize dropping Persona 5 on the Switch would be like striking a gold mine. I don't think they realize Nintendo fans would appreciate the hell out of that game.

Nobody know, when was last time AAA port announced sold really well on switch? Wolfenstein? Doom?..... Monster hunter?

@sakaixx: I don't care to look into numbers but I do know Persona 5 would be a perfect fit for the Switch. I already own it and love it on the PS4, and I can't help but think its format is perfectly suitable for the handheld.

The difference I see between Persona 5 and Wolfenstein, is no one really asked for Wolfenstein on the Switch - it was kinda just thrown on it. There's actual demand for P5 on the Switch and I think that's what makes a big difference.

@adsparky: No thanks, I want "real" Persona games. I will stick to the old Persona 5, currently on my 2nd playthrough on Merciless. Will last me another 100-200 hours.

Of course the beggar race doesn't care about Persona since it's not on their indie stations.

Yeah. The fact that I simply am not interested in playing a JRPG high school drama spinoff of Shin Megami Tensei, another series I don't care about, simply just can't be true.

PS4's aren't that expensive. In fact, they're easier to find for cheaper than a switch.

This worked for Hyrule Warriors, and being a Persona fan I might like this. Disappointed though they haven't any desire to port Persona to Switch. Disappointed that next SMT game is still no where to be seen.
