    This. Why not have all the Persona games in it? I wanna play as Persona 3 characters, because that's the only Persona I've played, and liked it!

    It does seem rather funny that Nintendo is advertising a Sony exclusive game, lol.

    Well, the Switch is about to outsell the PS4 in Japan next week. :P

    never like the musou games, but maybe getting this if it has a good narrative. I am not that excited for persona 5 the royal either, unless there is a good plot twist.

    I would gladly direct you to this worldwide graph I made the other day:

    upload_2019-4-25_18-34-1.

    And whatever happens in Japan, the worldwide trend makes it look like perhaps ports to the west will not be as profitable.

    Even with a (generous) linear estimation on further sales, the Switch still falls behind the PS4 worldwide, it might hit PS3/360 sale numbers at EoL... only in a very wonderful best case scenario.

    PS: I need to use this graph as many times as possible to justify the 15 minutes spent in gathering the data and plotting it.

    Yeah, nintendo fanboys keep talking how the switch is dominating japan, but it is a handheld whose have always sold well in japan. Dont do they remember about the wiiu? The true ps4 competitor of this gen and how it misserably failed? Stop with your higher egos, sony is still dominating this gen and near the 100 million mark.

    Also LOL at the people expecting a main persona game on a nintendo platform. Told you so :rofl2:

    Hopefully we get a 3DS port later with all DLCs included that runs at 10 FPS like the previous games.

    If I didn’t already own dragon quest, fire emblem and hyrule warriors i’d Buy it. I’m burnt out. Especially cause emblem & dragon were far too easy and generic.

    Well, at least it's a Persona switch game!

    Don't care either way on if we get P5 Royal on the switch or not (but please Atlus, I'd love it if you did), but it looks cool as hell anyway so I'm down.

    What a dissapointment. Mosou style gameplay gets really boring after a while. I rather have a 2 on 2 fighter than this boring mess.

    I'm conflicted. I was let down as I was hoping for a port. On the other hand, I want this game. I kinda hate that it isn't P5 though aaaaaaa

    people dont seem to understand this:

    Mainline Persona = Always Sony
    Spinoffs = Nintendo

    You're kidding right? It's neck and neck with the PS4. A main line Pokemon hasn't released yet, and they're most likely going to release a cheaper Switch this year. And you're trying to tell me that the Switch sales are going to go down? And Japan does matter to Atlus, a shit ton of their sales come from Japan, that's why they're going to release Persona R in Japan first, and then world wide like 6 months later.

    I'm going to trust the video game senior industry analyst over your word.

    gets a big "boooooo" from me. I think we were expecting a break from exclusivity, since there's nothing holding them back from doing so.

    probably a fun game still.
