They put Joker into the very iconic smash franchise and give Switch owners a spinoff of a game not even on Switch? I feel like P5S will sell badly on Switch since many Switch owners don't even know the characters besides Joker. So like... what's the deal? Why the hesitation to put P5R on Switch? Is the Switch that much weaker compared to the PS4?
Happy to say hi~

A port can still be announced.

I doubt an enhanced PS3 game would have trouble running on Switch, especially when you have games like DOOM already ported. I'm willing to bet it's a business decision, not a technical one.

Yes no one that owns a switch knows what persona is.

Clearly that's why there's so much salt

Probably because it makes no sense to release vanilla P5 when Royal exists. If P5 ends up being ported over it'll be after it releases in PS4 here next year.
Biscuits and gravy.

P5R is basically a complete remake just like Catherine Full Body. I don't think they will port it to Switch.

Also Persona Q was one of the best selling spin offs in the franchise, i don't think you know what you're talking about.

It honestly is odd, I feel bad for switch only owners who want to experience this game but can’t

- Persona Q1 and Q2 for 3DS exists
- Blazblue Cross Tag Battle featuring Persona characters exists
- Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with Joker as a dlc character exists

I bet that most of the casual Switch owners know about what Persona is more than what SMT is.
