Last month, Atlus revealed a new Persona 5 project currently only known as Persona 5 R. Additional information will be coming next month, but it seems like among the announcement the Japanese publisher will make is the rumored Persona 5 S.

Mr. Ohya, who previously talked about Persona 5 R before its original announcement, revealed earlier today that Persona 5 S will be released on Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 during Fall 2019. An official confirmation will be coming before May, so it seems like Atlus may reveal one of the two releases first during March, as teased in January.

A release of Persona 5 on Nintendo Switch is highly likely at this point. Not only Atlus registered a Persona 5 S domain back in December, but the game's main character, Joker, is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a DLC character. Considering only Persona series spin-off are available on Nintendo consoles, it wouldn't make much sense to have a Persona 5 character in one of the biggest Nintendo franchise without the original game not being available on Nintendo Switch.

Persona 5 is currently available on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. We will keep you updated on Persona 5 S as soon as more come in on it, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
