Rumors have been circulating around a Persona 5 Switch port for some time now, but no official announcements have come out. Regardless, Atlus doesn’t want fans to give up on this possibility.

IGN recently reached out to Atlus communication manager Ari Advincula to ask if it was finally time to put the idea to rest, to which she responded, “I am a strong believer in ‘never ever give up on hope’.”

Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers has received another official video, this time with Koei Tecmo CEO Kou Shibusawa. Watch it below.

Persona Central went to the trouble of sharing information from the interview. We have a roundup of the notable tidbits below.
