At the recent Xbox Games Showcase, Atlus announced two new Persona games. While a Switch version of Persona 5 Tactica was included in the reveal, there was no mention of Persona 3 Reload for the hybrid platform. However, a placeholder box art for a Switch version was discovered last weekend, and another listing for the platform has now popped up on the online retailer Playasia, giving fans hope for a Nintendo Switch release.
Details of the Announcement
Atlus recently announced two new Persona games at the Xbox Games Showcase. While Persona 5 Tactica was confirmed for the Switch, there was no news about Persona 3 Reload for the platform. However, a placeholder box art for a Switch version was discovered last weekend, and now a listing for the game has appeared on the online retailer Playasia, complete with a “preliminary picture” image. While this does not confirm anything officially, it has given fans hope for a Switch release and some are speculating that it could be announced in a future “Nintendo Direct” presentation.
Possible Release for Nintendo Switch
While there has been no official confirmation of a Nintendo Switch release for Persona 3 Reload, the game does not appear to be beyond the capabilities of the platform. Atlus has previously released Persona 3, Persona 4, Persona 5, and several spin-off titles on the Switch, so it would not be surprising if they decided to bring Persona 3 Reload to the platform as well. The game’s appearance on Playasia is also a positive sign for fans hoping for a Switch release.
While there is no official word on whether Persona 3 Reload will be released on the Nintendo Switch, fans are hopeful after a placeholder box art and listing on Playasia were discovered. With Atlus having released several Persona titles on the platform in the past, it is not out of the question that Persona 3 Reload could also make its way to the Switch. Fans will have to wait for an official announcement to know for sure.
