    Why don't atlus release this as a standalone dlc instead of a enhanced version of P5. Anyways still looking foward to this.

    Because like Persona 4 Golden, there's probably more than just simple tweaks going on. Persona 5: Royal most likely rewrites the P5 canon (to include the new characters, etc.), so scenes from the story, pacing, cutscenes, and many other things are likely to be redone from scratch.

    And now to wait and see whether the P5:R anime will be mostly filler (like Persona 4: Golden The Animation, since it was only about the new content, mostly the new side activities; the OP music was great though) or if they'll actually bother to redo the whole thing + the new side activities, since Kasumi seems to be a playable character, unlike Marie who was just an NPC. (Unless you count P4AU, where you could play as her via DLC and smack people with her bag/purse.)

    The ps4 version has better performance and no screen tearing, but the ps3 version isnt bad either.

    It doesn't cost them any more to release it as a new version of the same game, but they can charge full price for it.

    Wouldn't suprise me if Persona 5 S will be Persona 5: The Royal for Switch.

    It kind of is ridiculous how much they're supporting each individual game in the franchise. As much as I'm excited they're releasing the more "complete" version of the game, I kind of just want them to go and just focus on the next game, a spinoff (Raidou Kuzunoha, maybe a new SMT spin-off?), and be done with it. Persona 1 and both Persona 2s came out within 5 years of their original release dates, for Christ's sakes!

    You're being awfully optimistic. I'm just going to assume that, like they did with us PC players with Catherine, they'll give us just the vanilla version of Persona 5 on Switch, and that the exclusive stuff is Sony-only, also the same platform that wouldn't mind censoring Mara if it could.

    If anyone has played tokyo xanadu ex plus. (Enhanced edition of the vita version for ps4). Falcom added additional characters, more dungeons and a very long after story. It's kind of crazy but worked well. Atlus will most likely do the same. P5S is either a fighting game or a NSW version.

    Have read that p5s is gonna be a fighting game, the s being for stadium, which is going to be released on both switch and ps4.

    So, either way, dont get too hyped for a main persona game on a nintendo platform, and if it magically happens, it still going to be the vanilla version :rofl2:

    If you still expect tomorrow's announcement to be a Switch port, I'm 90% sure you're setting yourself up for disappointment. S can mean many things that aren't Switch, and specifically porting the inferior version of the game is just weird - let alone announcing the inferior version AFTER the improved one.
