Players have been asking for the Persona series, and especially Persona 5, on Nintendo Switch for a very long time. However, with the games suddenly moving to various new platforms such as Xbox and Game Pass, hope stayed alive and today on the Nintendo Direct Mini, it was rewarded. We learned that Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal will be coming to the Nintendo Switch, and what’s more, Persona 5 is launching in October 2022.
The Persona series coming to Switch and Persona 5 Royal’s release date on the platform were revealed during the Nintendo Mini Direct presentation on June 28, 2022. All three games will be coming to the Nintendo Switch eventually, but it will start with Persona 5 Royal. Persona 5 will launch on the Nintendo Switch on October 21, 2022. What’s more, all of these games will be their final forms, meaning that a great deal of DLC, story extensions, and further features are coming along with them to provide Switch players with the best experience of all three games.
The Persona series has had quite the season. After literal years of players asking for the Persona games to finally come to further platforms, many fans are finally getting their wish. Persona 3, 4, and 5 weren’t just confirmed for Nintendo Switch today after all. The games are also coming to Xbox consoles and the Xbox Game Pass. That means Persona 5 Royal in particular will pretty much be on all major platforms once it launches on the Nintendo Switch in October.
We know Persona 5 Royal is coming later this year, but there were no dates for Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden on the Nintendo Switch at this time. Stay tuned for more details and release dates as these games make their way to the Nintendo Switch in the near future.
