After the announcement of Joker coming to Super Smash Brothers Ultimate, fans are getting antsy to see Persona 5 come to the Switch.
Smash creator and director Masahiro Sakurai is now only fueling the fires with a joint video between Nintendo and Atlus.
Sakurai recently went on a trip to Atlus HQ, where he was interviewed and talked extensively about his love of the Persona series, especially that of Persona 5.
Online people are busy working on the translations, but the general consensus seems to indicate that its all just Sakurai praising the series.

Unfortunately no mention of Persona 5 coming to the switch was announced in any form, but the timing of this release has fan’s raising eyebrows. Recently several domain names hit the internet’s radar, including one called Persona5R.jp which has lead people to suspect it may be the switch release.
While the domain for Persona5R.jp was registered back in 2017, earlier this week Atlus moved the site onto a dedicated server, meaning it seems to be going ahead.
Most believe that the announcement will be made as the Persona 5 anime airs on December 30. Whether or they will drop a new game reveal is up in the air, but we won’t have to wait long to find out.

Knowing that a Morgana suit like that exists in the world is all I wanted this Christmas.
