Teddie as well as the gang in Persona 4 Golden collect evidence and chase down a serial murderer in the small hamlet of Inaba. To the much-loved PS2 original, this revised edition included additional Social Link, a new Dungeons, new challenge settings, new Personalities, a new Epilogue, and a slew of other little changes and improvements.
In 2020, the game had a surprise PC rerelease, bringing the series to a modern audience and allowing players to enjoy the PS2-era graphics at 4k 60fps.
It turns out that the impending launches of Persona 4 Golden and Persona 3 Portable will only be PS4 editions, adding yet another twist to this week’s Persona saga. The two games “will also be going to Steam and PlayStation 5”, according to a statement from SEGA and Atlus, yet the official site for the re-releases only has a PS4 icon. Persona 5 Royal is also included on the page, with a PS5 emblem, indicating that there is an obvious distinction to be made.
However, the fact that both the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S is featured alongside the PS4 and PC adds to the confusion. What happened to the PS5 version if Atlus is go the extra distance with a native translation for Microsoft’s current-gen platform? For the time being, all we know is that Persona 4 Golden and Persona 3 Portable will only be available on PlayStation 4.
Come back next week to see whether a PS3 version is announced.
The two games will only be available as digital downloads on the PlayStation Store, according to other pages on the site. It reads, “DL version only,” which means physical purchases are out of luck. Of course, the two re-releases aren’t simply taking advantage of all of the PS5’s features, but it does at least clarify that the DualSense joystick won’t be supported and that the SSD won’t be used natively.
Claims by a leaker Persona 4 Golden will be released on PS4 and Nintendo Switch
According to a leak, Atlus is planning platform adaptations of Persona 4 Golden for the PlayStation 4 and #NintendoSwitch.
Atlus’ Persona franchise was formerly considered fringe, but it has since grown in popularity, thanks in large part to the success of Persona 5. Despite the popularity of Persona 5, Atlus has been sluggish to capitalize on the renewed interest in the series, with many older titles still difficult to obtain on obsolete hardware. However, according to a recent rumor, the critically popular Persona 4 Golden may soon be coming to more platforms.
The console ports for Persona 4 Golden are “supposedly complete and ready to go,” according to leaker Zippo, who has previously properly released industry news but does not have a perfect track record. The Persona 4 Golden console ports, according to Zippo, will be launched for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, with really no word of an Xbox version. Zippo is unclear how much more the ports will cost, but believes it will be a little more costly than the PC port because it will likely be tangible.
Persona 4 was published on PlayStation 2 in Japan and received great critical praise at the time of release. Atlus later released Persona 4 Golden, an upgraded version for the Ps Vita that included new content and upgrades. Persona 4 Golden stayed locked just on PS Vita till June 2020, when Atlus eventually published a PC port of the game.
The popularity of the Persona 4 Golden PC port-led people to conclude that the game would be released on other platforms as well, but no such ports have been revealed two years later. Given the franchise’s close ties to the PlayStation brand, it’s a little strange that Atlus hasn’t launched Persona 4 Golden to the PS4 and PS5, but it is what it is. If Zippo’s information is correct, PlayStation players shouldn’t have to wait long to play a game on the new devices, though it’s wise to keep expectations in control.
Some Persona fans may be ecstatic at the prospect of replaying Persona 4 Golden on modern systems, while others may be more concerned about the franchise’s future. Persona 6 has yet to be announced, even though Persona 5 was published six years ago. Hopefully, an official unveiling for the game, as well as any other Persona ventures that may be in the works, will happen soon.
Persona 4 Golden is now available on PC and PlayStation Vita.
