Just yesterday, we got the big announcement that not only will Persona 5 Royal finally make its way to Xbox, but it’ll be joined by Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden. The two games have been popular requests for ports on many platforms but it turns out that the showcase was just a confirmation that the ports are happening and are available on Xbox Game Pass. Yet, the official statement has seemingly hinted at the games also heading to Steam and PlayStation.
The press release includes the statement “These beloved games will also be heading to Steam and PlayStation 5” which is an interesting surprise but good to hear for those from other consoles hoping to get their hands on it. Yet, the biggest surprise is that even the oldest entries aren’t joining Nintendo Switch. Persona 4 Golden is already available on Steam and likely set the path of these classics getting added on consoles.
Ever since Joker became a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, it seemed a definite that they’d find their way to the console. Even Banjo-Kazooie somehow managed to get added. Yet, the recent announcement does not include the Nintendo console that only provides the Strikers sequel that continues the story of the first Persona 5 entry even though the game is not available either. We’ll have to see if they may announce something in the near future.
