Atlus had promised that there would be no announcements during the concerts personas of this weekend since their stream is paying, and it is more or less required since the release date of the ports of Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden was revealed on Twitter at the end of the first performance.
Persona is coming to jump into the early 2023 fray
Given the stated desire to release all games from the Xbox June conference in the following 12 months, we expected to see both games arrive in the first half of 2023 but we did not expect them to arrive so soon and especially on the same date. In effect, Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden will both arrive January 19, 2023 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Switch and PC.
If you haven’t been following, you might be surprised to read that Persona 4 Golden will be coming to PC early next year while you already have it on Steam. This means above all the end of exclusivity for the Valve platform since the game will be released on the Windows Store for the occasion. We also recall that both will be included directly in the Game Pass, as is already the case for Persona 5 Royal October 21.
Atlus still hasn’t indicated whether the Steam version of P4G will be updated to accommodate the French translation which was not available at release but will be on the Windows Store version of the game, a small effort that would make many cringe if it was not done. We recall in passing that the two games will be translated for the first time into our language.
We would have liked to tell you that this surprise of the day gives us hope to see a new game at the end of tomorrow’s concert, but unfortunately, the official website of the series quickly cut this short. Indeed, you may remember the different boxes that filled up as this anniversary year progressed, and well they are all complete, so the release date of the two ports was the final announcement.
We will console ourselves with this tribute to the most famous artwork of episode number 3 but with the presence of the other more recent protagonists:
Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden will therefore be released on January 19, 2023 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Switch and PC.
