A recent survey by Atlus asks if Xbox players would like the Persona and Shin Megami Tensei series. The mainline RPG series has never appeared on Microsoft’s consoles before and it looks like Atlus is willing to expand the reach of the franchise beyond PC, Nintendo and PlayStation.
As reported by Windows Central, a recent survey sent out by Atlus asks various questions about their franchise. Question 38 in particular asks “If a sequel (numbered entry) in the following game series was to be released, what platform would you want to play it on?”. One of the options included is for Xbox platforms.
Due to the question’s wording, it seems like Atlus might consider bringing Persona 6 or newer side entries to Xbox and other platforms in the future. This also includes the Shin Megami Tensei series, which has been a Nintendo exclusive property for a while now.
The Persona series is a spin-off from Shin Megami Tensei and arguably gained more popularity through the release of Persona 5. Both franchises include similar gameplay and plot elements, but largely remain secluded from each other.
It’s rumoured that Atlus is already working on Persona 6, the next mainline entry in the series. This recent survey could be a way for the company to gauge interest in whether or not players on other platforms beyond Nintendo and PlayStation would like future installments to appear on them. If this survey is successful, it’s possible that we’ll see Persona 6 launch on Xbox too, though we won’t know for certain just yet.
In the meantime, Persona 5 Royal is available for PS4, while Shin Megami Tensei V released last year as a Nintendo Switch exclusive. Persona 4 Arena, the fighting game spin-off of Persona 4, previously released on Xbox 360.
