Earlier this year, an HD remaster of FuRyu’s 3DS game The Alliance Alive was announced. Today, the latest issue of Weekly Jump magazine revealed the game’s Japanese release date: October 10. Previously, it’s been announced that the Western version will be released “this fall”, so a simultaneous worldwide release certainly seems possible, but hasn’t been confirmed yet. We will keep you updated once the game’s release date in the West has been announced.

Persona 5 for Switch has been a long-running rumor. It was something that was partially spurred on by fan interest as well as Joker’s appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a DLC character. However, there has yet to be anything official from Atlus.

On that note, Atlus has ruled out bringing Persona 5 Royal – a new version of the original RPG with additional content – to additional platforms (like Switch). That comes straight from a new FAQ published on the company’s website today.

Persona 5 doesn’t appear to be happening on Switch as of now, but the musou spinoff Persona 5 Scramble is planned for the system. Persona Q2 also released in the west on 3DS this week, featuring characters from Persona 5.

Back in January, Taiwan gaming website Bahamut conducted an interview with Atlus’ Naoto Hiraoka. That discussion was now published online today.

During the interview, Hiraoka was asked about Joker appearing in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the possibility of Persona 5 for Switch, and the latest on Shin Megami Tensei V. You can find a rough translation of his comments below.

For the past several months, there have been ongoing rumors of Persona 5 for Switch. We haven’t covered them here because there’s been all sorts of information floating around about when it would be announced and whether or not it was real. However, there’s apparently some new evidence that points to Persona 5 happening on Switch after all.

Today, Reddit user groo0731 shared some photos online from Best Buy’s internal system. That system lists Persona 5 for Switch, but it’s not live on the site itself.

A new trailer for Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth is in that features the characters of Persona 5. Watch it below.
