Already posted. And the emulatioj ain't great according to those who have used it. PAL versions? Nintendo has no issue using NA ROMs even in Europe, they've even boasted of it as a selling point.

I was going to buy this, but with everything that has transpired I decided against it and instead I'm going to be building my own out of a raspberry Pi and it'll be cheaper (even though I'm going overkill on the USB flash drives).

I reckon a Switch release alongside a P4G port amongst other things. I’d rebuy P5 if it had enough worthwhile additions.

There was a PlayStation symbol at the start! So a new game similar to P4G, on the Vita? (It's not quite dead yet in Japan) or on the PS4? Seems a bit late for it to be DLC.
I mainly think a Switch port because of the Smash situation though I’m probably wrong. I doubt It’s anything for the Vita though.


That already has PQ2 though.
Looking through Wikipedia it would follow the pattern of all main line Persona games being exclusively on a Sony console and then ported exclusively to the portable Sony handheld. It also reminded me that P5 also came out on PS3, so a Vita port is plausible.
I don't know if they could do it with Persona 6 if it was a PS4/5 game, unless Sony tried again with handheld.


The vita is long dead and doubt could handle it.
Like I said, not in Japan:

OK, Nintendo has its Persona games, just not the main line ones. Must be some kind of deal between Atlus and Sony for those.


Not dead in Japan doesnt mean its not dead in the west and in my eyes im never touching digital games so its dead for me as its no more physical games
