Among upcoming video games, Persona 6 has a lot of buzz surrounding it. A major hurdle, though, is that Persona 6 does not yet exist in any canonical form (yet). We still have some ideas about when Persona 6 might come out and what it might be like. With what is hopefully some time before the game releases, we can speculate.
We’ll discuss when to expect Persona 6 and what we believe will happen with the game. My concepts for the characters, the world, and the plot are here. Further, I’ll discuss my speculations regarding potential future features and the platforms they might support. Alright, so let’s begin.
Release Date Speculations For Persona 6
Persona 6 is the only game currently available for which I would abandon all others. I consider the Persona series to be among the best in video game history, and Persona 5 and Persona 3 are two of my all-time faves in the genre. After the incredible success of Persona 5 Royal, my expectations for this game are through the roof.
So, I’m crossing my fingers that Persona 6 is nearing completion and will be unveiled shortly. On the other hand, I believe there is some proof of this. For this reason, I will do my best to explain when Persona 6 will be available. You can label my outlook as optimistic, but I think it will happen sooner rather than later.
History Of Persona 6
First, let’s go back in time before I provide my predictions about when Persona 6 will be released. The PlayStation 1 version of Persona debuted in 1996. In 1999, its sequel, Persona 2: Innocent Sin, was released for the PlayStation 1. In the year 2000, Persona 2: Eternal Punishment was released.
During those four years, we got half of the Persona main series. But they all operated on the same system and shared the same resources. The release of the PlayStation 2 subsequently revolutionized gaming, including the Persona franchise.
With the release of Persona 3 for the PlayStation 2 in 2006, the series began to explore new territory. After a long wait, in 2008, Atlus finally released the sequel, Persona 4. The series has to slow down here, which is a shame. The Persona series continued for almost a decade thanks to spin-offs and re-releases.
Persona 5 was released in Japan in 2016. Therefore, it has been out for eight years since the original Persona 4. Both PS3 and PS4 owners can now play it. The 2019 release of Persona 5 Royal marked the end of Atlus’s string of annual major new releases. The most significant gaps, as shown above, occurred between the years 2000 and 2006 and between 2008 and 2016. And the chasm that has opened up between us since 2016…
The similarities between the first three games stand out. The same was true for the number 3. I expect Persona 6 to use the same visual style and engine as Persona 5. The release date of the game, therefore, may be closer than you believe.
Specifications For Playing Persona 6 On Your Computer
System requirements for Persona 6 are based on an educated guess from one of our gaming specialists. There has been no official word regarding the game’s prerequisites as of yet, but these should give you a good idea of what you’ll need to play.
- Operating System: Windows 10, Windows 11
- GPU: 8GB
- Storage: 50 GB
- RAM: 12 GB DDR5
Game Consoles Supporting Persona 6
Then there are Persona 6’s support systems. Let me be the one to break your bubble: you will not be able to play it on Switch. When it comes to exclusives, Atlus acts in a rather peculiar manner. The studio has settled into a pattern with Shin Megami Tensei exclusively on Nintendo platforms and Persona on PlayStation.
It’s possible that this is because SMT had its start on Nintendo and Persona on the PS1. However, this only applies to brand-new releases and not remasters. For this reason, Sony has decided to release SMT3: Nocturne for the PlayStation 4, and Nintendo has decided to release Persona 4 Arena Ultimax for the Switch.
Along similar lines, I anticipate Persona 4 Golden on Switch this year. But the latest game, Persona 6, won’t. Instead, I predict it will continue to be a PS4-only title. In terms of hardware, I expect releases on both the PS4 and PS5.
As far as I can tell, both consoles will get their exclusive version, although I think the PS5 version will be the superior one. It may include some nifty extras like performance modes and DualSense support. Although I expect it to employ the same engine as Persona 5, the PS3 requirement being removed should allow for many improved visuals.
