The developer wants to know what audiences might be interested in.
Atlus has been in the habit of sending out surveys to Japanese audiences in the early months of every year, and their survey for 2020 has gone out as well. It asks the sort of quests they’ve been asking for a while now, getting a rough idea of where people’s interest levels lie for things such as remakes, ports of older titles, sequels of mainline releases, and more.
Just like last year, Persona 6 is brought up in the survey, with Atlus asking what platforms people would like to see the game on, with new options for PS5 and Stadia having been added to older options for PS4, PS VR, Nintendo Switch , PC, and mobile devices. Similar questions are also asked for mainline sequels to Shin Megami Tensi and Etrian Odyssey.
The Switch is brought up in plety of other questions as well, including ones for hypothetical of ports of all Persona titles (including expanded versions ad spinoffs), the Shin Megami Tensei series (once again, including spinoffs), and many others.
Remember that a though a survey indicates the the developer is at least thinking about if they have an audience on various platforms, that doesn’t necessarily mean they have any concrete plans for them yet. Atlus has been asking questions like these in its annual surveys for a while now.
Either way, it should be interesting to see if anything comes out of this. For now, they’ve got Persona 5 Scramble coming to the Switch and PS4 in Japan very soon.
