Majin Tensei II: Spiral Nemesis gets an English fan-translation

Now here's a deep cut! Majin Tensei II: Spiral Nemesis is a spin-off of the Megami Tensei series, and it released for the Super Famicom back in 1996. That title never saw release outside of Japan, but all these years later, an English fan-translation is now available. Pretty cool to see fans making sure these obscure bits of gaming history get to live on today.

RUMOR - Persona 5 coming to Switch

This kind of rumor isn't really that much of a stretch to believe. It's also not surprising at all to see it pop up after Joker's reveal for Smash Bros. Ultimate. That said, the rumor comes from MysticDistance, a translator and secondary writer for Persona Central, KHInsider, and other sites. Here's the info he's shared so far.

- Persona 5 is heading to Switch in 2019
- the game will be announced the day Joker becomes playable in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
- this version will have a new title
- it will also “contain adjustments to the game, additional aspects to the scenario, and other wanted additions”
- a Switch port has been under consideration since mid 2017
- the game's name is based on one of the domains Atlus recently registered

Two domain names Atlus has recently grabbed but not used yet are P5U.jp and P5R.jp. Either of these could indeed be tied to a Switch port. Hopefully we find out soon!
