Not only Smash for Joker: Persona 5 Royal and its predecessors, after months of unnerving expectations, have been announced for Nintendo Switch
And it was also now: the “final bomb” that usually concludes each Nintendo Direct it also came for the last one, bringing with it the arrival on Switch not only of Person 5 Royal, but also of his illustrious predecessors. As most people know, the partnership between the Big N and good old Atlus was limited to the “only” main series Shin Megami Tensei, of which the Joker and company franchise is actually a spinoff. Since the arrival of the leader of the Phantom Thieves to the stellar cast of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the demand for the game he came from has only increased. There’s a reason why our Persona 5 Strikers review opened up by calling the game the real Joker debut on the Switch.
Nintendo Switch and Persona 5 Royal: “You will never expect it!”
The refrain of Last Surprise is eloquent: “You’ll never see it coming”, and in fact everything we would have expected except the arrival of Persona 5 Royal on the Nintendo Switch. The game, as well as the previous chapters Persona 4 Golden e Persona 3 Portable, offers an irreverent insight into contemporary Japanese society. In addition to the themes of social relevance, however, we can also expect iconic characters to identify with, as well as a difficulty worthy of Shin Megami Tensei and, in the case of the fifth chapter specifically, so much of that style to make us forget that we are playing a game role-playing in turns.
As we have headed the title of the article, you will understand Atlus’ choice on which titles to give higher priority. In fact, we will see the three games on the hybrid console of the Kyoto giant in reverse order, and at the moment it is only the last born to have a precise release date. In fact, we speak of the October 21 for the raids of Rei “Joker” Amamiya, while in the case of Persona 4 Golden and Persona 3 Portable we have no more precise data than a banal “Coming soon“. One thing is certain, however: now that (with the arrival of the series also on Xbox) the blue chains have melted, the road is all downhill.
