@Alex90 You're a bit late on that

the NVIDIA leak was disconfirmed by NVIDIA themselves. The datamining effort was legit but the titles listed were basically completely speculatory and not actually representative of games in development according to them.

Some of the games there like God of War were only used for testing purposes and weren't actually confirmed for PC.

Of course, they said that. This is some PR Emergency 101: denying everything until death. SMT V will get a Bravely Default II treatment, that is the undeniable truth.

edit: Ralizah... We will see it which timeline will the MC of the world would choose: a future with Nahobino enslaved by the chains of Nintendo Switch exclusivity or a glorious Nahobino spreading the word of Human Salvation on "Gabeboy" (aka Steam Deck).

SMT V isn't going to Steam, lol. Atlus is serious about exclusivity of its games. And if Sega was going to push them to make something multiplat, it'd be the multi-million selling Persona 5, not the more obscure, hardcore series that spawned it in the first place.

@Alex90 Yeah, no. Atlus usually never releases newer games on Steam. SMT is a nintendo exclusive. They'll probably put it on steam years down the line, like they did with 4, but that's about all I see them doing.

(Insert creative or cool phrase here.)

@VoidofLight Yeah, I could see a remaster of it going to Steam. But, for the purposes of playing it in the 2020s, it's going to require Nintendo hardware. Or emulated Nintendo hardware, I guess, considering how often I see people talking about emulating all manner of Switch games on their PC.

@Alex90 Considering Atlus has flat out not only completely unaltered its decision to keep it Switch exclusive but even doubled down on it by having Kazuyuki Yamai defend it in interviews, stating that Switch was really the only platform they considered the game for, I wouldn't get your hopes up. If it comes to PC it won't be for years if Persona 4 Golden or Catherine was any indication

Plus if they haven't even brought the considerably more successful MegaTen game with a 5 in its name to platforms that aren't PlayStation, ain't no way they're going to start with the considerably less popular, more hardcore branch of the franchise even if it is a mainline game

I get it. The odds are against me. B-b-bu-but I am a man of faith. Miracles happen, guys and gals!

I am so spoiled that I don't need to wait more than December to get Bravely Default II on Steam because already launched with Steam Play compatibility in mind. No need for tinker Winetricks or custom Proton. It just works like any game on Windows.

(I)Atlus-Senpai already noticed the potential clients they have on PC. (II)You all seem to forget that in December, Steam will be more than just a PC gaming platform with Steam Deck. Trust me, It won't be a total failure like the abominable Steam Machines. (I) and (II) will collide and make SMT V on Steam a reality. If not SMT V, then other future MegaTen games. Doesn't matter anymore, I already win!

I fully expect Atlus to continue branching out with future games. Hell, I'm halfway expecting Persona 6 to go to Steam. A Persona 3 remake going to PS4 and PC day one wouldn't surprise me, either.

But not with SMT V.

@Ralizah Yeah I think it's safe to say Persona 6 will probably get a PC version if not immediately or simultaneously with PS4/PS5 or even if it's just a PS5 game, then definitely like 2 or 3 years down the line

SMT is still very clearly tied down to Nintendo systems. Nocturne getting a release on PS4 was probably them trying to capture the audience that played Nocturne back in the day on PS2 or even the Persona crowd that wants to get into SMT, but Nintendo platforms have hosted the series pretty much exclusively since Strange Journey and that stance within the company hasn't changed at all, which is why I'm not expecting it to change anytime soon either

@TheFrenchiestFry Releasing Persona 6 on PS5 only would be incredibly uncharacteristic for Atlus, considering they pretty much always design the games to run on last gen tech.

IMO, SMT VI will probably release on PC as well, but it'll probably be a good 7+ years away at minimum. Mainline games in this series take a while to release.

I’d see SMT V coming out on playstation before them releasing it on pc, and even then it’s not likely.

Anyone else here seen the character art for Idunn? Very cute design. Really looking forward to seeing her demon showcase video soon.

Yeah, if Atlus refuses to release P5 on Switch and PC when there are a bunch or Joker appearances in various other games that are on both systems(and even a full spinoff in strikers), I wouldn't hold my breath for SMT V on PC. Just get it on Switch, lol.

I made the mistake of thinking P5 could make it on Switch, but at least I had a reason to with all the Joker cameos and Strikers being on Switch.

Idunn Demon character art. Looks like it captures some of that Pixie adorable factor and it's nice seeing more Norse mythology demons outside the biggies like Thor, Loki and Odin make an appearance

I kind of hope that Persona 6 won't be locked to the ps4 and ps5 both, and that it'll end up on the ps5, taking full advantage of the hardware's graphical powers.

(Insert creative or cool phrase here.)

TheFrenchiestFry

@VoidofLight Considering Atlus is always supporting a previous gen system when it comes to big Persona releases and that the game likely started development as a PS4 game given it's supposedly been worked on for the last 2-3 years, it's probably going to be on both and then the re-release with extra content will probably be PS5-exclusive like Royal only being developed for PS4 and adding visual updates to support the PS4 Pro as well

@TheFrenchiestFry Ah. It'll be a shame, since that means probably no raytracing when it releases. However, it's not that big a deal since Persona 5 looked great for a game made for the ps3 in mind, so I have no doubt that 6 will look even better.

(Insert creative or cool phrase here.)

@VoidofLight This idea that cross-gen games are somehow inherently compromised by having to run on weaker hardware is largely a myth. The only major difference between PS4 and PS5 that could present a problem for games having to run on both are the storage mediums they use, and most games aren't going to have level design that REQUIRES an SSD to run well. Certainly not Persona games, which are still relegated to tiny, PS2-era level layouts for their games, something even Shin Megami Tensei V on the Switch is abandoning despite being exclusive to vastly weaker hardware.

Otherwise, developers can just scale the performance and visual output to the hardware. Outside of feeding into an elitist mentality that last-gen owners SHOULD miss out on new games, there's not really a reason for most games to go next-gen exclusive at this point. When they do, they'll be big-budget AAA games, and not technically piddly JRPGs like Atlus turns out.

tbh I'm not even expecting Persona 6 to take full advantage of the PS4's hardware, let alone the PS5's. They're not a Square-Enix or Bandai Namco.
