Atlus wonders if it should release the next Persona on Switch and Xbox

Persona 5


Persona 5

The story focuses on the 16-year-old protagonist after he is transferred to Syujin High School in Tokyo, Japan. Staying with friends of his parents, he meets up with problem child Ryuji Sakamoto, the withdrawn Ann Takamaki, art student Yusuke Kitagawa, and a talking, shape-shifting cat-like creature known as Morgana.

During the protagonist's time there, feeling suppressed by their environment, the five form a group known as the "Phantom Thieves of Hearts", working together to explore the "Palace", a castle created by the hearts of people, and steal ill intent from others' hearts to help them: during this quest, they confront adult authority figures opposing them, along with a greater enemy revealed by their activities.

Atlus wonders if it should release the next Persona on Switch and Xbox

Historically, Persona and PlayStation is an enduring love affair. But the publisher's annual survey Atlus suggests that certain barriers could fall for the next opus or games.

Even if exceptions exist ( Persona 5 Strikers , on Switch ;  Persona 4 Arena  on Xbox ), it is common knowledge that the  Persona license  is the preserve of Sony. Only, the video game industry today is much more polarized than in 2017. And going without a release on a console that has sold more than 110 million copies may not be the best business plans.


Atlus remains open

Every year, the Japanese publisher Atlus shares with its players a survey allowing it to take the temperature on a certain number of points on their expectations.

And what interests us, precisely, is question 38 of the form. In it, Atlus offers its fans to choose the platform on which they would like to be able to play "  the next entry (canon) of the series  [Persona]".

Among the list available to respondents, all platforms are offered (except PC , sorry), including Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and smartphones . On this last point, Altus also specifies several options:  free-to-play , single purchase, by subscription. Proof if needed that the publisher seems to remain very open about the future of its license.

Of course, this does not bode well for the future arrival of a  Persona 6  on Xbox, Switch or smartphones. But that Atlus takes care to ask players for their opinion remains notable. Whether he decides to shove all those answers under a rug or not.
