Persona 5 Royal Switch frame rate resolution

Persona 5 Royal recently reached new platforms including Switch, and Digital Foundry has now taken a closer look at the port from a technical perspective to cover aspects like resolution and frame rate. The outlet mostly seems to take issue with resolution as it’s not as high as other Atlus releases on the console and lower than other demanding titles that have come to the platform.

Here’s the full roundup of notable tidbits:

Persona 5 Royal review

System: Switch
Release Date: October 21, 2022
Developer: Atlus
Publisher: Atlus / SEGA

2022 has been a year heavily laden with JRPGs for Switch, but while most of the releases we’ve seen this year are all new offerings, Persona 5 Royal is a bit late to the party with the original Persona 5 launching back in 2016 for PS3/PS4 and Royal following in 2019 specifically for PS4. While a Switch port was widely hoped for, the first taste Switch owners would get of anything related to Shin Megami Tensei would be the port of the Wii U’s Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE. Although the mainline series did make its way over soon enough, this is the first round of Persona on Nintendo’s hybrid console. After all these years, though, is it really worth the wait and the port-begging?

Persona 5 Royal comparison

GameXplain has put together a new video comparison for the new Switch version of Persona 5 Royal, stacking it up against the PS4 release. This comes ahead of the launch on Nintendo’s console in just a few days.

Overall, any changes made to Persona 5 Royal on Switch seem to be minimal. In terms of content, you’re obviously getting the same exact content. Visual changes seem to be minor and appear to come down to saturation. Resolution on Switch also can’t reach the same heights as the PS4 version, though this was largely known to start with.

Persona 5 Royal SEGA

Atlus is finally delivering on what many fans have been asking for by bringing past Persona games to new platforms, including Persona 5 Royal. As it turns out, we can thank SEGA for the Switch port.

Atlus producer Shinji Yamamoto revealed in an interview of Famitsu that SEGA led the way on the project. Yamamoto mentioned how he “didn’t realize how hard it would be.”

Persona 3 Portable Persona 4 Golden Switch release date

Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden now have a release date on Switch. Both RPGs will debut for the system on January 23, 2023, Atlus announced today.

The news was shared on social media. Xbox and PC platforms were only included in the official image above, but Switch should be getting the games on the same day – just like Persona 5 Royal. Atlus’ tweet also mentions “modern platforms” rather than specifically calling out specific systems.
