Persona 4 Golden Shadowdrops on Steam


You may have seen the rumours earlier this week pointing to Persona 4 Golden releasing on Steam, but even if you hadn’t there’s good news to be shared as the game has shadowdropped on the platform during the PC Gaming Show. This is only the second Atlus game to be released on Steam, after Catherine was released last year, and is the first time the Persona series (excluding the Persona Q games) has released on a non-PlayStation platform. Given the quality of other games in the series such as Persona 5 Royal, the more people that are able to access the series the better.

Originally released on the PlayStation 2 simply as Persona 4, the game was re-released on the PlayStation Vita console as Persona 4 Golden in an expanded port similar to Persona 3 Portable for the PlayStation Portable. Persona 4 Golden’s Steam release looks to largely be a straight port of that version of the game, with screenshots and gifs available of the game not pointing to any large improvements in visual fidelity. The game’s store page indicates the game now supports Full HD (with no mention of support for 1440P or 4K resolutions), variable framerates, steam achievements and trading cards, and Japanese and English VO.

Persona 4 Golden is available for purchase right now on Steam (at the time of writing it’s already the current Top Seller on Steam) for $29.99 AUD for the standard edition and $37.99 AUD for the Digital Deluxe Edition which includes a digital artbook and digital soundtrack as part of the package. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come and more Atlus games come to PC in the future.
