It's a phenomenon!

Just a few weeks after social media mocked the very idea of Persona on Nintendo Switch, Persona is coming to Nintendo Switch. The big announcement to close today’s Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase is that ATLUS is finally bringing the critically acclaimed Persona 5 Royal, Persona 4 Golden and Persona 3 Portable to Nintendo gamers.

Things will kick off October 21, 2022, with the release of Persona 5 Royal.

Persona 5 Royal: Forced to transfer to a high school in Tokyo, the protagonist has a strange dream. “You truly are a prisoner of fate. In the near future, ruin awaits you.” With the goal of “rehabilitation” looming overhead, he must save others from distorted desires by donning the mask of a Phantom Thief.

The Switch version of Persona 5 Royal will include all previously released DLC.

We’ll then move on to…

Persona 4 Golden: They say your soulmate will appear if you stare into a television set on a rainy night… This strange rumor slowly spreads through the rural town of Inaba, the protagonist’s new home, just as a chain of mysterious murders begin. As the protagonist and his teammates chase after the truth, they find themselves opening the door to another world.

For the first time, enjoy Persona 4 Golden with text in French, Italian, German, and Spanish!

Persona 3 Portable: If I say there’s an hour “hidden” between one day and the next…would you believe me? This unknown time is the “Dark Hour.” Unfamiliar stillness swallows the city, people turn into eerie coffins, and otherworldly monsters called Shadows swarm. One night, the protagonist is attacked by these Shadows. When all hope seems lost, the power of the heart, their Persona, is awakened.

Featuring enhanced graphics, Persona 3 Portable will also be available with French, Italian, German, and Spanish text for the first time!

Release dates for Persona 4 Golden and Persona 3 Portable have not been announced.
