You may recall that, back in June, SEGA and Nintendo announced that Persona 5 Royal would be coming to the Nintendo Switch. The game is currently slated to release on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on October 21st. There are 2 more Persona games, Persona 4 Golden and Persona 3 Portable, also planned for a Switch release in January.
Well, we learned a tiny bit more information about the game in the lately weekly issue of Famitsu. Although the game originally came out on the PlayStation 4 a couple of years ago, this new release is being called a remaster. Even Shinji Yamamoto, Atlus producer for the game, is calling it that.
Yamamoto also said that “We’ve made some very detailed adjustments. We optimized the number of the pieces of debris that blow away for each model. Elements like effects, number of projectiles, et cetera. SEGA was in charge of the development of the remaster (not just matching the resolution to the console). It was a very meaningful project. Multi-platform development isn’t easy. This was my fist porting project, and I didn’t realize how hard it would be”.
