Sega and Atlus announced today during the PC Gaming Show 2020 event that the hit RPG Persona 4 Golden is now available on Steam, confirming reports from earlier this week. The long-running Japanese series has been a PlayStation platform exclusive since 1999.
As expected, the PC version comes with some platform-specific enhancements over the original release, including variable framerates, high-resolution gameplay going up to 4K, as well as Steam achievements and Trading Cards. Players can also switch between the Japanese and English voice-overs.
Persona 4 originally released in 2008 for the PlayStation 2, garnering critical acclaim, which was then followed up by an enhanced Persona 4 Golden edition for the PlayStation Vita platform in 2012. For those uninitiated, here's the game setting description straight from the developer's new Steam store page:
Inaba—a quiet town in rural Japan sets the scene for budding adolescence in Persona 4 Golden.
A coming of age story that sets the protagonist and his friends on a journey kickstarted by a chain of serial murders. Explore meeting kindred spirits, feelings of belonging, and even confronting the darker sides of one’s self. Persona 4 Golden promises meaningful bonds and experiences shared together with friends.
Persona 4 Golden comes in at $19.99 on Steam. There is also a Digital Deluxe Edition that adds on a digital artbook and soundtrack to the offer, bumping the price up to $24.99.
