    No, maybe ask one of the staff, they probably have a good source for interviews. There are two developer interviews where Hashino is like, "We seriously thought the game would not come out, but we finally got it to a point where it was either release it as is or not at all." My understanding is that it was both because of budget and the way they spread the team too thin. It also didn't help that they decided to release a PS4 version when they were nearly done worth the PS3 version, forcing them to redo all of the portrait animations for the in-game cutscenes.

    Then there's another interview where they're like, "oh we had all these concepts we threw out because the game was long enough" - but that was AFTER the game was released, and they were able to cover up the fact the ending was unfinished with the customer-feedback that people felt the game dragged. But seriously, I don't know anyone that played the game and was like, "oh it fits so perfect that they skip the last 3 months..."

    Oh, I was implying that if, Persona R were released for the Vita without Western localization (like Catherine Full Body was), I'd still be pretty happy knowing that there might be a fan translation sometime in the future to play it in English (as I hope there will be for Catherine Full Body). Hope that clears things up for you, bud.

    Oh I guess that make sense. Maybe they can level up the profit margin even if Vita had stopped its production, as the install base is still high. Graphics though..

    I’m still positive they will release at least a Golden portable version down the line one way or another. P5 sold only about 600k physically in Japan. Market is stagnating, people may not be so interested in P5R. They need to reach other platforms, or maybe PC lol.

    600k is still gangbusters for a series like Persona. Even if Persona 5R does half of what P5 did (2M WW that's still a big success.

    How did you even pick out that it's a ps4 release? They left if so vague that no matter how unlikely it could even be a psvita release for all we know.

    The Persona Channel states PlayStation 4: http://p-ch.jp/news/3236/

    As well as the official P5R website: https://p5r.jp/

    So, it seems like P5R is to P5 what P3FES was to P3... I'm more than ok with this, as I'll finally buy the game for PS4 (already bought the PS3 release before I had a PS4).

    Then why did Joker get into Smash? Keep in mind that Nintendo selected the DLC roster for Smash Ultimate.

    Exactly.
    ...and the original Persona Q didn't herald the arrival of P3 and P4 on Nintendo either.
    If you're going to quote the Smash roster as a reason for games coming to Switch I can give you a long list of titles you'll be dissapointed to likely never see on that console.

    Rumor is still there. Be patient and wait.

    The 'rumour' that was created by Switch fanboys based on zero fact from Atlus/Sega? A presumption garnered from Joker being in Smash?
    Yeah... be patient.

    Whatever, one way or another you're embarrassing yourself by being that condescending? That 5channel leak + female MC Smash leak are the reason we know P5R exist in the first place.

    What? We found out about P5R back in December when Atlus themselves teased it. The female character was not leaked until February.

    Atlus recently sent out a survey asking people if they'd like to see Persona ported to PC and/or Switch.

    P5R leaked on that channel was posted way earlier, around 10 Dec I think. Yeah FeMC was late, sorry that was bad on my part, I rounded it all up.

    The same survey asks if people want to see a mainline SMT game on PC/PS4.

    This confirms it folks, we are getting SMT5 on PS4, while Persona 5 will be going to the Switch! /s

    Edit: Frankly, I don't really care if it releases on the Switch or not, but you all need to really lower your expectations. P5 for the Switch has not been announced nor teased and the rumors have just been speculation because Joker is coming to Smash. Let's all just calm down and believe it won't be coming to the Switch until it is announced.
