Modernization: Atlus has confirmed that Persona 5 Royal, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 3 Portable are coming to PS5, with the P3P and P5R also arriving on PC via Steam, as well as launching on Xbox Game Pass.
In a press release, the studio announced that in addition to being released on Xbox and Windows via Game Pass, the three games “will also be heading to Steam and PlayStation 5.” So far, Persona 5 Royal was only available on PS5 via backwards compatibility, while Persona 3 and 4 were only available on PSP and PS Vita, and have not yet ported to more modern Sony home consoles.
Original story: Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal are all coming to Xbox consoles for the first time via Xbox Game Pass.
Announced earlier today during the Xbox and Bethesda Game Show, the launch of the three Persona titles on Xbox is a historic step for the JRPG series. While Persona 5 Royal launches later this year in 2022, Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden will launch next year in 2023.
This is definitely a pleasant surprise for Xbox owners and Persona fans in general. Having more players around the world, on a brand new console, get to experience Persona for the first time is great, especially after Persona 5 has outperformed the rest of the series by some margin over the past few years.
What’s interesting is that the Portable Persona 3, not the FAS, is coming to the new consoles. For those unfamiliar, the mobile version of Persona 3 had an alternate heroine, while the release of Character 3 in Fez included a brand new epilogue section, which was picked up some time after the events of the main game.
However, it’s a great move from Atlus. Persona’s three games are traditionally seen as “modern” character games, after director Katsura Hashino took over the franchise at Atlus. Sorry, Persona and Persona 2 fans, you’ll have to keep hoping that Atlus returns to revisit its franchise’s origins in the future.
