Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal are coming to Nintendo Switch

During today's Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase, Atlus announced that Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal are coming to Nintendo Switch. 

Just as with the recent PS4, Xbox, & PC Persona announcements, Persona 5 Royal is coming first, launching on October 21. Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden have not been given a release window other than "coming soon".

Like the recent announcement, Persona 5 Royal's port will include all DLC from its original release. Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden with also include French, Italian, German, and Spanish text translations for the first time.

If you are new to Persona and are unfamiliar with these three titles, each is a re-released version of an entry in the Persona series.

  • Persona 3 Portable originally released for PSP in November 2009 in Japan, followed by NA and EU releases in 2010 and 2011. It famously added the option to play as a female version of the protagonist, which offers new social links and events, as well as the ability to control party members directly. It does not, however, include the game's animated scenes or the bonus "The Answer" dungeon crawling epilogue found in Persona 3 FES.

  • Persona 4 Golden originally released for PlayStation Vita in 2012, followed by a PC release in 2020, adding a new character Marie along with several new events.
