Persona 4 Golden has stepped on up to the plate and is now officially out on Steam. Mainline Persona games have been exclusive to PlayStation systems, with the exception of the first Persona. Until today, Persona 4 Golden was only available to play on the PS Vita.
Persona 4 Golden For PC Unveiled At PC Gaming Show
Since that system didn’t sell well, and Sony has since stopped manufacturing the console, many of us fans were worried about what would happen to Persona 4 Golden. Now, it seems like those worries can go away.
The announcement came at PCGamer’s PC Gaming Show. During the live stream, the broadcast cut to Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller, who has been a vocal fan of Persona 4 Golden since it originally came out. He then introduced the game’s trailer, and it was glorious. It’s not a one-for-one port of the PS Vita version, either.
Persona 4 Golden’s Steam Version Has Some New Additions
Unlike for the PS Vita version, the Steam version of Persona 4 Golden lets you switch between the Japanese and English voice tracks. This is a neat trend that Atlus started to do with Persona 5 and continued with Persona 5 Royal for the PlayStation 4. It’s great to see them include it here.
Also, the Steam version comes with various graphics and display options. You can adjust the rendering scale, shadow quality, anisotropic filtering, anti-aliasing, resolution, vertical sync and much more. It’s not a graphically demanding title, either.
Should Run Easily On Your Computer
PCGamer’s own analysis indicates that the game will even run properly on integrated graphics. Persona 4 Golden will also run at an unlocked framerate. This is a departure from previous versions of the game. The original Persona 4 on PlayStation 2 only ran at 30fps.
The PS Vita version of Persona 4 Golden is also locked at 30fps. So, depending on how powerful your gaming rig is, you may be able to run it at a buttery smooth framerate. It’s also quite a value proposition.
The retails for $19.99 on Steam. There’s also a digital deluxe edition for $24.99, which comes with the digital soundtrack and art book. For a game that takes dozens of hours to complete, that’s a steal.
