So apparently Soul Hackers 2 was announced some time ago, and there wasn't a Switch version. Is there a reason for it? Did SMT V do poorly?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

SMTV sold a million in a few months and is the highest selling SMT game ever already.

It's just third parties being dumb.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

So does anyone know why is Atlus giving the Switch the cold shoulder nowadays? They were one of the best supporters of the 3DS, and now they do so little.

Atlus makes no sense on their games releases. They've gone from Persona 4 releasing only on the PS2 when the PS3 was already on the market for over 2 years with the only port after that was to the Vita of all places, then almost 10 years later, to PC. Then supporting the 3DS consistently, to making Persona 5 exclusively on PlayStation, to making the Persona 5 spin-off, Strikers, on everything but Xbox. Then going to Shin Megami Tensei V exclusively on Switch, to Soul Hackers 2 on everything but the Switch.

Then to make things even more confusing when it comes to the continuity of releases, Persona and Soul Hackers are sub-series to the main series, Shin Megami Tensei.

The business deals they make, make no sense. And since Atlus is a publisher, they themselves make these deals and Sega just funds them.

Atlus' platform choices never make any sense. Better to not even try to understand it, because it's just random without cohesion.

And that's why Joker shouldn't have been in Smash Bros. Ultimate. Persona 5 itself NEVER EVEN CAME TO SWITCH. They could've given us Dr. Robotnik as the second Sega rep, but instead we got some anime pretty boy only 10% of the playerbase even care about.

And how much % of the playerbase cares about Dr. Robotnik? Just thought it'd be important to get all the facts from you.

The number isn't exact, but it's certainly much higher than Joker.
