Nintendo reveals that Persona 3, 4, 5 are coming to Switch

Persona Switch

Persona 5 is coming to Switch this year on October 21, 2022

The Persona Switch dream is a reality.

Today during the Nintendo Direct Mini, which was aimed at third-party partner announcements, Nintendo showcased the release of Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal on Switch. The former two are slated as a nebulous “coming soon” release, while Persona 5 is fully dated for October 21, 2022.

This news directly follows the recent announcement of the trio for the PC, PS5, and Xbox platforms two weeks ago. And really, it’s not even something that needed to be leaked, rather than assumed! Nintendo isn’t shy about collaborating with Atlus, and given that they aren’t exclusive to any one platform, the company likely wants to see the trio out on as many platforms as possible: including one of the best-selling consoles of the modern era.

In any case, a Persona Switch announcement is great news. All of these games need to proliferate as far and wide as possible, and all of them have their own unique spins and cast members to differentiate themselves. I like all three of them for very different reasons, though Persona 5 has become the golden goose in recent years, and the favorite in many circles.
