Persona 5 Developer Wants to Know If You Want Persona 6 on Nintendo Switch

If you are anything like us, your hopes may have been dashed in the apparent reveal that the (still mysterious) Persona 5 R may be skipping Nintendo Switch. In any case, developer Atlus may be feeding the rumor mill once again — in a recent survey to both Eastern and Western fans, the studio wants to know what console you’d like to see a sequel on… including Nintendo Switch.

First reported on by publication Twinfinite, Atlus released a survey to its fans via Twitter looking for general “feedback” in exchange for the change to win PSN, Nintendo Switch eShop, or Xbox gift cards:

However, while a “feedback” survey would lead you to think the questions would be geared to the studio’s quality and advertising (and some questions are!), the team is also looking for general direction when it comes to future projects.

In the USA version of the survey (found in the Tweet above) a series of different possibilities for the Persona series exists, with Atlus explicitly asking if you would be interested to see either a Nintendo Switch, PC, or Xbox One port of existing Persona games:

However, if you aren’t a fan of the game coming to other platforms, you are also able to request other projects–specifically DLC, new merchandised, remake/remaster or older Persona games, or a full sequel or new installment.

Though this doesn’t explicitly mention a Nintendo Switch version of the next installment, the Japanese version of the survey (which is currently down for maintenance) is a bit more brazen. They specifically ask if you would want to play the following installment on Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, PlayStation VR, Smartphones, or “other.”

Worth noting (and observed in the Twinfinite article), this is notably a change from previous surveys on Persona 5 and possible sequels. When Atlus was circulating a similar survey roughly a year ago, they were still asking whether fans would want to play the games on either Nintendo 3DS or PlayStation Vita. So in dropping this, Atlus may be signaling that they are no longer planning on supporting the aging handheld consoles in the era of Nintendo Switch.

Of course, this survey isn’t only about Persona 5 and the series at large. You can also let them know that you are interested in seeing Catherine (and other Atlus titles) as [ports on the Nintendo Switch, or focus towards DLC, remakes, and new installments:

Regarding “Other,” make sure you put in how you want more Persona 5 Catherine: Full Body DLC — I’ll take that as a personal favor.

Persona 5 — despite being multiple years out — is still alive and well in the gaming meta. With the imminent announcement of what Persona 5 R “is,” the community is kicking back up with some cool fan-made projects. This includes awesome cosplay of fan-favorites Futaba and Makoto, a fan-made board game, and a visual re-creation of what a Game Boy Advance version of the title will look like.

If you somehow haven’t picked up your copy of Persona 5 yet, you can support Atlus and the franchise by picking up the game on Amazon. Meanwhile, make sure to go fill out the survey via the link above to let Atlus know where you stand.

Atlus Asks If You Want Persona 6 (and More) on PS4, Switch, PC, or Other Platforms

Today Atlus released an extensive survey in which they asked the opinion of the fans on several rather intriguing questions.

The questionary is fully in Japanese, but it does touch some interesting points, beginning with whether the fans would like a new Persona board game, a fighting game, an online RPG, a strategy RPG, an action RPG, a shooter, or they’d prefer a completely new Persona 6.

For each of those options, we’re also asked which platform we’d like among PS4, Switch, PC, PlayStation VR, PS Vita, 3DS, Smartphones, or something else.

Interestingly, the survey continues by inquiring on whether fans would enjoy a remake of one of many of the developer’s games. The list includes the Devil Survivor and Devil Summoner series, the Etrian Odyssey series, the Digital Devil Saga series, the numbered Shin Megami Tensei titles, and the whole Persona series. For all of those options, the preferred platform is also asked, and the possibilities are the same as the previous question.

The next question asks whether we’d like to see spinoff games from Atlus properties developed by other developers. The titles listed are Soul Hackers, Devil Summoner, Devil Survivor, Persona fighting games, Persona dancing games, Persona Q, Etrian Odyssey, the main Persona series, and the Shin Megami Tensei series.

Another one inquires on whether we’d like Atlus to focus on developing a completely new IP, a mainline numbered game of their main series, a spin-off of their main series, a remake of past games, a port of already-released games to new consoles, non-gaming content like anime, or collaborations with other companies.

If you answer that you want a completely new IP, you’re also asked whether you’d like it from the Shin Megami Tensei team, the recently-formed Studio Zero, the Persona team, Vanillaware, or the Etrian Odyssey team.

Last, but not least, we’re asked again on which platforms we’d like the next mainline numbered titles of the Persona, Shin Megami Tensei, and Etrian Odyssey series. Once more, the options are PS4, PlayStation VR, PS Vita, 3DS, Switch, Smartphone, PC, or something else entirely.

Actually, I lied. That wasn’t the last question. The actual last one is whether you believe in the Phantom Thieves or not. I’m not kidding.

As a bonus, the survey also includes some pieces of lovely artwork of the upcoming game by Studio Zero code-named Project Re Fantasy. We glimpsed them in the latest teaser trailer, but now we see the full version of each.
