The new Persona ports will be coming to Steam and PlayStation 5; Persona 3 and 4 rumoured to be coming to Switch
Microsoft announced on Sunday that three highly-acclaimed games in the Persona series will be coming to Xbox One, Series X|S and Windows PC, all on Game Pass. Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal will be making their way to Xbox over the coming months, starting with Royal on October 21, 2022. This is significant as, until now, most mainline Persona games had been restricted to PlayStation platforms, with the exception of the original game getting a PC port in Japan in 1999, three years after its initial release.
Today, Atlus also confirmed these titles will be coming to Steam and PlayStation 5. It's currently unclear whether or not these ports will release on the same schedule as the Xbox ones. Golden already released on Steam back in June of 2020, and Royal is playable on PS5 through backwards compatibility with the PS4 version, but this will finally bring the most popular titles in the series consistently to a number of platforms. It also marks the first port of Persona 3 Portable, which has been locked on the PSP since its release in 2010.
Speaking of Persona 3 Portable, news of its port leaked back in December by a blogger named Zippo. While Zippo said it would be getting a "multiplatform remaster," and this appears to be more of a straight port, he nevertheless accurately predicted that it would be getting a multiplatform re-release. He also leaked, correctly, that Persona 4 Ultimax would be getting a port in July of 2021, before its announcement that December.
Zippo has again posted a leak regarding the Persona series. On Sunday, the day of Microsoft's press conference, Zippo posted a celebratory post about the announcements, and ended with the message "Don't worry, Nintendo and Sony fans, your time will come. They're coming to your platforms, too." He later updated his post to clarify that Persona 3 and Persona 4 (presumably the Portable and Golden versions) will be coming to Switch, but he's unsure if Persona 5 Royal will be making it to Nintendo's platform.
Of course, this is just a rumour, so take it with a grain of salt, but Zippo does have two solid Persona-related leaks under their belt at this point.
