Did you miss the big Persona news this week? Well, we have something pretty good to tell you! Persona 5 Royal, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 3 Portable are all coming to the Switch.
Starting in October, Persona 5 Royal will be staging a Take Over on the Switch, with Persona 4 and 3 following in 2023. Many of these characters have already made appearances on both the 3DS and Switch before in Persona Q, Persona Q2, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, and Persona 5 Strikers. And 5’s protagonist Joker became famously the first DLC character for the first Fighters Pass for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. To say this has been a long time coming is an understatement.

So why should you play Persona on Switch? Thankfully, the lovely Zion is here to tell you why, but he’s not alone — he’s getting cozy with a very familiar guest. Jon Cartwright, former video producer here at Nintendo Life and now part of the Good Vibes Gaming YouTube channel, joins Zion on the sofa for a cuppa and a lovely little chat about the Persona series (including Persona 1 and both versions of Persona 2).
The pair reminisce about their Persona history and discuss the benefits of having all three games on a portable Nintendo system. These are long games, but the pick-up and play nature of the Switch should encourage players to play them in bed, or snuggle down on the sofa and play the game at their leisure without worrying about being tethered to a screen.
Check out the video below, say hi to Jon, and let us know your thoughts on Persona coming to the Switch in the comments here and on the channel!
