During this week’s Xbox & Bethesda Games Showcase, it was revealed that Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden and Persona 5 Royal are making their way to Xbox.
It’s big news for Xbox fans, as the Persona series has never been on a Microsoft console. The first to roll out will be Persona 5 Royale, which is landing on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Windows and Xbox Game Pass on 21st October. However, the news left PlayStation users a little disappointed.
But a press release from ATLUS has given us the confirmation many have been waiting for: Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden are indeed making their way to PS4 (and P3P to Steam). We just don’t know when. Persona 5 Royal is also releasing on PS5 and Steam on 21st October.
Persona 3 was originally developed for PS2 back in 2006. It was released in 2009 for PSP under the name Persona 3 Portable. This will be the first time the game has been made for modern home consoles. And, considering the game is over 15 years old, it’ll be the first opportunity many newer Persona fans will have to play the game.
Persona 4 Golden (or P4G), on the other hand, is an enhanced release of 2008’s Persona 4, also make for PS2. P4G was the name given to the PS Vita port, released in 2012. This one has already had a PC release, with a version landing on Steam back in June 2020.
So, yes: the announcement may have left out PlayStation fans due to it being part of an Xbox-centric event, but worry not. Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden are indeed making their way to PlayStation consoles.
We presume they’ll be landing on PlayStation and Steam at the same time they land on Xbox, which will be after October. But we’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for more updates regarding P3P and P4G.
