Atlus has been bringing Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal to PC and other consoles for the past several months. Of these, Persona 5 Royal was released on October 21 this year, with the other two to follow at a later date. Earlier today, though, SEGA had an update regarding that.
Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden will have pre-orders starting today, and the final release date will be January 19, 2023. Each game will also be available separately for $19.99 USD. You can watch a new trailer celebrating the announcement below.
Both titles have various quality-of-life improvements made to them, including various difficulty options and a convenient new Suspend Save function (think of the Quick Save feature in the various Nintendo DS Final Fantasy ports).
It is interesting to note that previously, these versions of Persona 3 and Persona 4 landed on the various PlayStation portable consoles, the PlayStation Portable and PlayStation Vita, respectively. Outside of the emulation, there were no ways to access these versions other than having a PlayStation Vita and downloading both.
However, both versions serve as enhanced ports of their console counterparts, Persona 3 FES and Persona 4. And as it stands now, you’ll be able to have all three of these in one convenient place, if you so choose. Speaking of which, Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden will have a bundle that Xbox players can purchase. We will continue to update as more information is released on upcoming ports.
Persona 4 Golden is now available on PC via Steam. It will be launched on PlayStation 4 and Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on January 3, 2023. Persona 3 Portable will launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on January 3, 2023. Pre-orders for both titles are available now on Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC.
