Last week, Atlus said its recent survey asking about the games it should port to the Nintendo Switch had exceeded expectations. This followed, with the discovery Catherine: Full Body had been rated for the hybrid platform in South Korea.
Since then, there have been even more requests for Atlus to bring Persona 5 to the Switch. While there's been no official mention of such thing at the moment, IGN recently reached out to Atlus Communications Manager Ari Advincula and asked if it was time to give up on hope. This was her reply:
I am a strong believer in ‘never ever give up on hope'
You want what you want and if you don't let us know it we’re never going to be able to make it.
She further stated how Atlus was listening to the fans and understood the desire for a game like Persona 5 on the Switch – further reiterating how it was important for fans to voice their opinion.
At this point in time, the only Persona game for the Switch is Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. Joker, the protagonist of Persona 5, has also appeared in a number of Switch titles including Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
