I’d be very surprised if P5S isn’t Persona 5 for Switch. Especially given how heavily promoted P5 is in Smash Bros Ultimate. I guess we will know for sure this week. Thank goodness I can play as Joker in Smash till then, otherwise the wait would be unbearable.

Do note that Jason Schreier, journalist and generally-correct insider, has reported that P5S is a new spin-off title (probably in a new genre, though he's uncertain) and that P5R is PS4-exclusive at launch.

Like, it's still possible, but definitely keep your mind open to other possibilities so you aren't too heartbroken if it turns out to be Persona 5 Solitaire.

Even if Persona 5 S proves to be something else, I guarantee that Persona 5 will come to the Switch, either this year or eventually. Given the Best Buy leak, the numerous rumours about it coming to the Switch, ontop of Joker being in Smash, it seems plainly obvious that Nintendo and Atlus struck a deal between the two of them. Even if it’s not P5S, I’d be very surprised if Nintendo and Sakurai just decided to put Joker over other big Nintendo characters as DLC just because it’s a big surprise and Sakurai likes the game. There’s usually a calculated reason for such things.

True. As discussed elsewhere in this thread, it's almost definitely happening one day. It's just that the assumptions that it is all but confirmed to be P5S are questionable at best.

True. It could be a spin off game or something else entirely. Honestly, I wouldn’t put it past Atlus. We shall see soon though. :)

So, the next few days are gonna be jam packed with new news for us, and I look forward to everything we'll see :)


I have a request for this thread, because this week is also big due to Avengers Endgame, which I'm not going to see until next week probably.
I'd like to ask to not post any spoilers about it please. or if you do to use spoiler tags.

I'd like to keep visiting this thread at least, during all this :)

There are better places to take a nap than on the ground you know... but let's not do that today. Stay there and go to sleep.

I saw End Game in an early showing at a pretentiousstigious film festival. Just so you know, after the Avengers beat Thanos by having Ant Man grow big right under Thanos big toe, thus giving him an infected hang nail, that the Avengers then wait for six months for the infection to grow so bad it finally kills Thanos, just as they use the gauntlet to bring all the dead back from the soul stone, the Millennium Falcon drops down on the surface of Titan, and the Avengers see themselves face to face with Rey, Han Solo, and the rest of the cast on board the ship at the end of The Last Jedi, with the surprise reveal during the end credits scene being that we learn that along the way, Rey and friends picked up Deadpool and Captain Spock from Star Trek on their travels as they left the salt planet, and also Jar Jar Binks joins the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Well, uh, that is a lot of changes.

Like, sure, I expected an expanded version of the game, but remixing the original dungeons to make it different for people? New sprites for the Phantom Thieves in the metaverse? Quality of life improvements within a game that was already amazingly smooth to play? Pretty darn impressive.

Caroline/Justine have actual hang-outs now, which is neat I guess. I like the product placement poolhouse too. The notion of a third semester is inherently suspicious to me, given the first game's ending, but I'm interested in seeing where it goes.

Kasumi looks awesome, though I think Joker should have a chat with her as she seems to have stolen his coat and gloves. Granted, she definitely has some connection to Joker, as apparently she transfers into the school on the same day as him as well, which sounds important. I'm interested in seeing why she's a thief at all, given how she doesn't approve of their actions.

The Counselor confidant sounds amazing in premise - I just really hope that they don't make him evil, as I'd like more depictions of counseling/therapy as something helpful and the "person who is supposed to help you is evil" trick is pulled enough times in P5 as-is.

Overall, I'm pretty excited to see how this game unfolds. Hopefully we can all stay safe and spoiler-free once it releases in Japan in October...
