After P3P, the devs said they wanted to make the definitive version of a Persona this time around. P3P forced them to make cuts as well as settle for less visual clarity. In this sense, upgrading to 544p is understandable along with other built-in features like trophy support. Downgrading to 240p... the devs probably didn't want to go through a P3P again, so no 3DS version.
Anyway, what does it matter. Atlus is still gonna support 3DS with its own wares so all is good.
