Persona 5 R Revealed

Developer Atlus reveals Persona 5 R as their next project for 2019 but says nothing about a Nintendo Switch version.

At The Game Awards 2018, immediately after the announcement of the Joker of role-playing game Persona 5 being added to crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, fans coming theorizing that the game may see a Nintendo Switch version release.

Then developer/publisher Atlus proceeded registrations for P5R.jp domain to fan the flame until Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai took a trip to their HQ. Right before stepping into 2019, they teased for a new project in works.

Just have a look at this recently dropped trailer on YouTube by the company which doesn't tell much other than playing over the mystery of what comes next.

Yup, that's it. Nothing much but a date for next year following the PlayStation logo over its iconic blue screen and then comes the line "Take Your Heart" a on a red background with a voiceover before revealing the date to be just March 2019.

Aside from clearly hinting that they are working on something, the developers didn't say much for now and chose to keep everyone in the dark. The trailer also confirmed that the domain that was registered earlier is activated and belong to this new project now.

However, the meaning behind that "R" still remains a mystery to all and we cannot help but wonder it is a nod to "Remake" or "Remaster" for Nintendo Switch maybe? We don't know that for certain but our bet is fans of the handheld console would wish it was.

Then again, why would a port for Switch would then show up with a PlayStation logo in the first place? Since the original Persona 5 was released on both PS3 and PS4, a release on the Sony console shouldn't be much surprising at all. We all have to wait until March 2019 is here.
