Atlus releases classic JRPG ‘Persona 4 Golden’ on Steam

This marks the first time the series has released outside of PlayStation consoles

During the PC Gaming Show developer Atlus announced that the Persona 4 Golden is coming to Steam – and it’s out now.

This is the first time the series has released on a platform other than PlayStation. Persona 4 Golden is an enhanced version of Persona 4, and originally released on the PlayStation Vita.

With the jump to PC, Persona 4 Golden has received a fair amount of enhancements. Most notable is the inclusion of both English and Japanese voice overs. This is the first time players in the west can experience the Japanese vocals and have the choice to switch between the two options.

Reviews for the PC port have been highly positive. PC Gamer describe Persona 4 Golden as “a captivating JRPG, marrying slice-of-life drama with stylish demon battling”. While Screen Rant declared that the Steam version “is the best port yet of one of the JRPG genre’s previous generation greats”.
