The beloved and slightly bizarre Persona series is heading to Xbox for the first time, as three of its RPGs cross over to Microsoft’s platform.
Revealed during the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase, Persona 5 Royal, Persona 4 Golden, and Person 3 Portable will launch on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC on October 21 later this year. While all three games have previously been released on PlayStation consoles, this is the first time the Persona series will hit Xbox territory.
The JRPG series has developed a loyal fan base since its inception 25 years ago. Known for its slick anime art style and strong teenage characters, many Persona games have gained wide acclaim and cult following. Xbox players will now have the chance to try them out as they step outside the walls of PlayStation exclusivity.
Watch the announcement below the trailer to take a look at the games.
Personal 5 Royal, the latest entry in the series, has taken Persona to new heights. We think it’s one of the best RPGs you can play and we love its stylish character design, deep, wacky story, and fresh ideas. Its turn-based dungeon crawling has been enhanced by the addition of lightweight social sim features, which makes your characters that much more captivating.
It’s not the first time the Persona series has left its home on PlayStation. The Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth spin-off launched on Nintendo 3DS, and Persona 5 Strikers – a crossover game with Dynasty Warriors – also launched on Nintendo Switch in 2021. Persona 4 Golden is also now available on PC.
Regardless, this is the first time Xbox has joined the party. All three games will be available to play on Xbox Game Pass on launch day.
