Persona 5: The Royal received a new trailer today, and once again, there was no mention of the Switch. That means all hope is lost for a port, right? Not necessarily, as a Smash Bros. Ultimate datamine detail from last month now makes a lot more sense after today's trailer.
Last month, dataminer Dr. Hyper Cake shared the following discovery from Smash Bros. Ultimate's source code.
There is another reference to "Jack" that I feel should be mentioned: "/Jack6_C06_v01_070925.mb_Jane1_pony_hairSystemShape2.mchp"". @jam1garner was the first to notice it in the string dump. I've seen some interesting theories about what "Jane" could refer to relative to Joker.
This information didn't really draw much attention from fans, but today it makes a ton of sense. The new trailer for Persona 5: The Royal showed off a new character for the game. While we didn't get a name for the character in the trailer, we did see that she has a ponytail, and this is prominently displayed in the trailer.
Could this woman in the new trailer be the Jane with a ponytail referenced in the Smash Bros. Ultimate datamine? It certainly does line up, and would make you think that Jane will be an alternate for Joker, who was named 'Jack' in the source code.
Of course, that's all speculation for right now. We'll just have to hang tight and cross our fingers for an announcement confirming all this. As for now, which side of the fence are you on?
