Masahiro Sakurai the director of Super Smash Bros also visited Atlus recently to talk about his love for the series. This is why we saw Joker being one of the guest characters in Super Smash Bros.
Another possibility of Nintendo Switch port is due to the addition of Joker as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

As for what this new project from Atlas is, we will have to wait till March 2019. That “R” in the name yet remains a mystery. However, we are guessing it to be remaster or a port for Nintendo Switch. Obviously, we can confirm nothing yet so do take it with a grain of salt.
