The Games Award 2018 were presented last night in LA. One of the biggest announcements was the inclusion of Joker from Persona 5 in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Joker is the first of five DLC characters due to arrive in the game.
Every character featured in Super Smash Bros is, or about to be in a game on the Nintendo Switch except for Joker, this may be an sign that Persona 5 is coming in 2019.
Nintendo and Atlus already have a strong relationship and Persona Q2 is already on the 3DS in Japan.
There is a rumour from MysticDistance who is a translator and writer for Persona Central, KHInsider. He claims the following
- Persona 5 will be annouced for Switch the day Joker is played in Smash Brothers.
- It will have a new name with various improvements including additional aspects to the scenario.
- The Switch port has been under consideration since last year.
This is rumour that may not come to pass, but we would love to see it come true. Persona 5 on the Switch would be an amazing addition.
