For those interested, Smash Bros. was datamined some time ago. Joker's character was usually defined as "Jack," but there was an alternate version "Jane" with a ponytail.
Should lend some more credence to this being the femprotag, because I know there is a lot of debate.
Also, her character design is indicative of a main character. There would be more alterations to her uniform if she was just going to be the prerequisite Aeon arcana.

I honestly think it's a bit hilarious that all these Persona announcements keep happening and people all thought they were going to be Switch related, and wouldn't ya know, they aren't. I specifically remember a lot of people thinking R (and maybe S? though I think that's just the anime special) were going to be the codenames for the Switch port, and yet here we are.

Don't get me wrong I hope it comes to the platform but by now we shouldn't take any of this as a certainty. Here's hoping something gets announced next month.

It would cause quite a backlash to have Joker as a Smash character and not have his game on the console. Especially nowadays when there's no real reason to keep the series exclusive, Persona is actually becoming popular (at least outside of the niche JRPG circles).



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Persona 5 Royal
Persona Battle Royale confirmed? XD

I'll wait for next month for the Switch announcement, there's no hurry.

How do you know there will be a switch announcement? If switch gets persona 5 can ps4 also gets smt 5? Its only fair but I dont think nintendo fans would be happy if ps4 also gets smt 5

There is no reason for Persona to be exclusive as it is a big franchise nowadays. About SMT though? Who knows? But it definitely is way less popular than Persona.

Ecxcept SMTV will be the same on all systems and ps4 ver is censored a lot which mean...

This is such a stupid drag. There will be no reason to censor SMTV. I still don't see any big game that was censored on PS4. 

Is DMC 5 a big game?



 

Well now we know what Persona 5 R is. What about Persona 5 S, Persona 5 M, and Persona 5 B though? Yes, those are all domains registered by Atlus. I think S stands for Switch, B is for xBox (this would be weird), or Battle (as in a fighting game), and M will either be the PC version or something I can't even guess at. 

I give Persona 5 90% odds of coming to Switch. Joker is coming to Smash. S Stands for Switch. Persona 3, and 4 both got portable versions. Vita isn't around anymore, so I see Switch as the portable system for Atlus to port it to. That's three fairly good inductive arguments in favor of it coming to Switch.

Unless Nintendo has published or funded SMT V in any way, I doubt it will stay exclusive to the Switch. Maybe they will release it first there and a some time later on the PS4 (or the PS5, considering it's close enough and might work as a big launch title in Japan).

I guess it will depend on how well SMT5 performs on Switch. If it sells great, then there will be reason to port it to other platforms. Just like with any other third-party game that isn't tied to exclusivity deal.

Are you sure there is none nudity/blood/gore scene in SMTV? Even SMTIV have some. Also, "I still don't see any big game that was censored on PS4". Tell that to this game:

https://www.dualshockers.com/devil-may-cry-5-censor-pc-ps4-xbox-one/

Devil May Cry V was censored on Xbox One and Steam as well. (And that article claims it will update as the story develops, but they still haven't updated that part.) Playstation can't censor the Xbox and Steam version, so that means it was Capcom's decision to do it on those platforms.
You'll have to ask them why they chose to censor different butts on different platforms though.

from that pic she looks like the female protagonist from Persona 3 portable.

While it's not certain that that is the Persona 5 protagonist (due to a number of reasons that are confusing), my hype thrusters are at maximum power for a female protagonist.

The female route in Persona 3 made Persona 3 a million, billion times better for me.

Elaborating on this, the female character in the trailer says she doesn't agree with the Phantom Thieves, so she may not be a female protagonist. (Unless she is lying for some reason.)

And that's why Atlus might be one of the worst companies when it comes to Switch support ...  

We'll see. I definitely think it will happen, I just don't think it's good that it's taking so long.



Well, not surprising at all this is happening, glad that I waited (though many times I felt tempted to buy the vanilla version of the game beause it was cheap).

Edit: though maybe there's a chance they'll sell the extra content as DLC for the people who bought the vanilla version.
