The tech wizards at Digital Foundry strike again with a meaty breakdown of Persona 5 Royal’s new multi-platform release. The breakdown includes every new version including Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and PC. But given the site you’re currently on, let’s breakdown a few of the Nintendo Switch version’s highlights:

  • Despite the large file size cutbacks - the visuals retain most of the intended effects.
  • Resolutions - Docked: 1440x810 and Handheld: 960x540
  • Framerate: A completely stable 30 FPS (based on the first 8 hours)
  • Short loading times
  • Small animation issues were present during recording but seem to be gone as of the recent Switch firmware update

Overall it seems like SEGA took a lot of care in making sure Persona 5 Royal runs consistently well on Nintendo Switch. Other Atlus titles do run at slightly higher resolutions but at the caveat of inconsistent framerates. Overall this seems like a great conversion to Switch and is a great way to experience the iconic JRPG.

Are you happy with the performance on Switch? Have you played Persona 5 Royal or are you playing it for the first time? If you’re new to the series maybe consider giving our Beginner’s Guide to Modern Persona a read-through!
