Despite the fact that Atlus will be revealing more information about Persona 5: The Royal and Persona 5S in the coming months, the clamor from fans to experience Persona 3 and 4 on current devices has not subsided. Despite the fact that Atlus now has a full schedule, developer Naoto Hiraoka has said that the company is open to the idea of porting old titles to the PlayStation 4 in the future.
A successful genre in Japan, Persona struggled to build a name for itself outside of the nation as a spinoff of the Megami Tensei franchise. Persona 3 was launched in Japan in 2006, the United States in 2007, as well as Europe and Australia sometime after for PlayStation 2 in a delayed launch schedule. As a result, Persona 4’s launch was a little more spaced out between 2008 and 2009, still on PlayStation 2.
At present, Persona 5 accounts for more than 2.4 million in global sales numbers. Since its launch, we have won many game awards and received much feedback from fans. The response has been very enthusiastic.
A fresh female heroine, updated interface design, plus updated plot components were introduced to the third version of the PlayStation Portable, which was released in areas during 2009 and 2011. When the Persona 4 Golden remaster was launched in 2012, this title was made retroactively accessible on the PlayStation Vita.

It’s been a while since the PS Vita’s iconic titles were made accessible on any PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4 system through the PlayStation Network, thus the now-discontinued device has become a hot item among western gamers after Persona 5’s success. Persona 3 and 4 may be coming to current platforms, according to a conversation with GNN Gamer by Hiraoka, which was transcribed by media outlets.
The fact that all three videogames will be available on current-generation consoles is good news, but one iteration is conspicuously missing. The Nintendo Switch adaptation of such titles, particularly Persona 5, has long been desired by many enthusiasts, however, no such edition seems to be in the works at this moment.
Perhaps Persona 5 Royal exceeded the capabilities of the Switch. Even if Persona 4 Golden, as well as Persona 3 Portable, works well on the platform, it’s possible that Atlus intended to incorporate all three titles and didn’t wish to cut one out, but this is just conjecture.
