Persona 3, 4 and 5 Also Coming to PC and PlayStation 5

A survey last month by developer/publisher Atlus asking players whether they would like to get Persona franchise on Nintendo Switch and Xbox platforms, which lead many to theorize if they are planning for Persona multiplatform launch.

At recent Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase 2022 event, Atlus announces to release Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4: Golden and Persona 5: Royal on Xbox cross-generation consoles, which are also coming to PC via Steam and PlayStation 5.

Although a previous Atlus survey suggests that these three games will be released on Nintendo Switch consoles, there was mention of it. However, an upcoming Nintendo Direct presentation may announce Switch ports for Persona series.

Persona series became very popular in west with Persona 3 release and its popularity exploded with Persona 5 in 2017. Fans have been begging Atlus and Sega to port Persona games on other platforms, namely for PC and Switch handheld.

Newly announced Persona games are already available to play on PlayStation platforms but all three of them will be updated for PS5. P3 Portable came out on PlayStation Portable for Japan in 2009 and P4: Golden already debuted on PC.

Persona games releasing on Xbox seems like a miracle but considering that same has happened with Sega's very own Yakuza series lately. Sony's aggressiveness towards censoring some of the Japanese games may be a reason for such move.

Xbox/Bethesda Showcase enouncement for Persona series debut on Xbox had people confused at first. Since it was a dedicated stream, there was no mention of rival platforms and many fans believed these titles are Xbox console exclusives.

Persona 5: Royal is arriving for PC via Windows Store, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S with Xbox Game Pass on October 21, 2022. Atlus didn't reveal a release window for PS5 and Steam while P3 Portable and P4: Golden will arrive next year.
