Atlus has revealed that Persona 5 Royal, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 3 Portable will be coming to PC, Xbox One, Series X|S, and Game Pass. The announcement was made during the Xbox and Bethesda Showcase as part of Summer Games Fest 2022. An update following the announcement confirms that the games will also come to Playstation.
Persona 5 Royal will arrive on the platforms on October 21, 2022, with all previously-released DLC. However, Atlus is keeping mum on platform release dates for Persona 4 Golden and Persona 3 Portable with “enhanced graphics” at this time, with more news to come in the future.
Persona 5 Royal was released for the PlayStation 4 in October 2019, and we gave it high marks for its story, characters, quality-of-life improvements, localization, and visuals. It regularly makes appearances on many a “best RPG” list. Royal adds new characters to the mix, along with a number of other notable bits and bobs over the base Persona 5. It has previously only been available on PlayStation.
Like Royal to Persona 5, Persona 4 Golden is a souped-up version of Persona 4, which originally launched for the PlayStation 2 in 2008 before making its way to PlayStation Vita in 2012, PS3 in 2014. Interestingly, Golden isn’t on modern PlayStation platforms, having only been released on PC in 2020.
Persona 3 Portable is also currently missing from the modern PlayStation console lineup, having been released for the PlayStation Portable in North America in 2010. It, too, is an enhanced port of 2006’s PS2 JRPG, Persona 3.
