Persona 5 Royal

Persona 5 Royal update 1.02

Atlus is now offering a new update for the Switch version of Persona 5 Royal, bringing the RPG up to version 1.02. This is a small patch for the game.

Today’s update addresses two specific issues. Neither heavily impacts gameplay, but they were problems that needed to be addressed.

The official patch notes for the Persona 5 Royal version 1.02 update are as follows:

Persona 5 Royal sales million

The recent re-release of Persona 5 Royal – which Atlus calls the remastered version – has sold over one million copies worldwide, it’s just been announced. That figure is based on all platforms with the sales of both the physical and digital versions.

Combined with Persona 5 Royal’s arrival on new platforms alongside the original PS4 version, the RPG has sold a total of 3.3 million copies worldwide.

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 5 Royal 1 More Edition

Atlus will release the 1 More Edition for Persona 5 Royal when the RPG launches on Switch next month, the company just announced.

Other than a physical copy of the game, players will also receive a steelbook case, treasure chest box, art frame inspired by Justine’s Le Grimoire clipboard, Phantom Thieves art prints, Akechi’s briefcase bag, and Arcana tarot card deck. Pre-orders are now open via Atlus’ online store here.

Three entries in Atlus’ acclaimed Persona series have finally been confirmed for Switch – specifically Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal. Persona 5 Royal will launch first on October 21.

Persona 3 Portable is the third version of the RPG. It added new features, including a playable female protagonist, new story elements and music, and a new interface.
