The beloved and slightly quirky Persona series is headed to Xbox for the first time, as three of its RPGs are ported to Microsoft's platform.
Revealed during the Xbox and Bethesda keynote, Persona 5 Royal, Persona 4 Golden, and Person 3 Portable will release on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC on October 21 later this year. While all three games have previously released on PlayStation consoles, this is the first time the Persona series has headed to Xbox territory.
The JRPG series has developed a loyal fan base since its inception 25 years ago. Known for its animated art style and strong teen characters, many Persona games have achieved cult followings and acclaim. Xbox gamers will now have the opportunity to experience them outside the walls of the PlayStation exclusive.
Check out the announcement below to preview the games for yourself.
Personal 5 Royal, the latest entry in the series, took Persona to new heights. We think it's one of the best RPGs you can play and we love its stylish character design, deep but wacky story, and fresh ideas. His turn-based dungeon exploration has been enhanced with the addition of light social simulation features, which make his characters even more engaging.
This isn't the first time the Persona series has left its home on PlayStation. The spin-off of Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth was released for Nintendo 3DS, and Persona 5 Strikers, a crossover game with Dynasty Warriors, was also released for Nintendo Switch in 2021. Persona 4 Golden is also available for PC. .
Either way, 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.
