That's like saying Cuphead and Ori and the Blind Forest aren't indie, lol.

Sure MS owns the Minecraft IP now, but have people seriously forgotten that from 2011-2014 Minecraft was built, launched, and routinely updated when Mojang had fewer than thirty employees?

@Magician Well, they're not independent anymore, so technically it's not an ''indie''. Not that it matters, stupid labels are stupid.

Mojang isn't independent anymore, sure.

But it irks me when people dismiss Minecraft as not indie.

Who gives a damn. At this point Indie doesn't mean Jack anymore anyway because most of these games do have publishers who handle everything from distribution to marketing behind them.

Lately I've been playing some old Wii classics like Muramasa: The Demon Blade and MadWorld, and now more than ever I really miss the Wii and its excellent selection of games. Hell, even in the indie scene, we don't get any games with such style and identity as games like Muramasa and MadWorld.

Man, those games were real good. They don't deserve to be left on the Wii and Vita. Muramasa and MadWorld deserve to be played by more people. Switch port pls.

Also their soundtracks are simply exquisite.

@Tsurii Pretty much. Like for example, I love Devolver Digital, but they publish these so-called indie games. Isn't that still against the whole... "independent" angle?

@Magician no one is dismissing anything, indie is just a meaningless label.

@Ralizah Yeah, no Switch announcement happened. More news on the game April 24th.

People actually believed Persona 5 would come to the Switch? Why? I know Joker is coming to Smash, but it's quite a leap to then assume Persona 5 would come to the system just like SMT V will never appear on the PlayStation platform.

@FragRed The fact it wasn't announced now doesn't mean there won't be a Switch version though I did expect a Switch version to be announced before Smash 3.0 is released if it's happening.

@Grumblevolcano I just don't see it ever happening. Surely if it was to come to the Switch, announcing it either shortly after the Smash reveal of Joker, or during the same time that they publicly announced Persona 5 R coming to the PS4 would have made sense.

This kind of thing happens way too often - Nintendo fans get way too worked up over the prospect of a game coming to the Switch over a rumour, then get let down because the hype they created themselves didn't come to anything. Then they start all over again. Its why I have so little faith in any version of Persona 5 coming to the Switch.

I can't tell if this statement is your askewed perception of the gaming industry or a misunderstanding of the definition of indie? Minecraft was created by one person, supported by a few people, with zero financial backing = the very definition of an indie game. By your logic, games like Axiom Verge, Stardew Valley, Braid, Fez, etc, etc, etc...aren't indie.

SEGA did this with Sonic a few years ago followed by that infamous anniversary stream.

I can't wait for Persona 5 to come to PC so we can get mods.

At this point I'm expecting anything Persona 5 related to be PS4 exclusive. No Switch or PC.

Mainline Persona is Playstation-exclusive. Has been forever. No reason to think that'll change.

People will definitely be playing on PC once PS3 emulation is more consistently viable, though.

@Ralizah I've said it before and I'll keep repeating it over and over, but I still do not understand why Atlus has selective exclusivity. Like, why is SMT Nintendo exclusive and Persona Sony exclusive?

That said I understand why something like Etrian Odyssey is DS/3DS exclusive because it completely relies on the hardware. But SMT and Persona? Why???

So as it turns the box for Persona 5 saying "Only on PlayStation" is accurate.

Though when I point this out people say "No its happening".
