Atlus Officially Announces US Release For Persona 4 Golden

Posted on May 2, 2012 AT 01:12am

Persona 4 ended up becoming one of the most beloved Japanese RPGs on the PS2, and now the updated and expanded PS Vita version of the game has officially been announced for North America.

I loved Persona 4. Loved it. So, getting another chance to play the game is great—even if it wasn’t going to be coming with additional content, a new character, and other goodies.

Atlus USA announcing Persona 4 Golden—the Vita version of the game—for English release here on our shores was always a question of “when”, not “if”. Well, that “when” ended up being just after Midnight on May 2nd (aka today).

Here’s what Atlus had to say about Persona 4 Golden:

Following in the footsteps of Persona 3 Portable, the second highest rated PSP system game of all time, Persona 4 Golden for PS Vita offers an enhanced and expanded portable version of the highly acclaimed original.

P4G is overflowing with enhancements and a wealth of new content: Visuals remastered for the PS Vita’s vibrant display, 1.5x the voiced dialogue of the original, a new online rescue feature, new Personas…

…New story events (with a new character); stunning new anime cutscenes, including a new opening animation with a new song from Shoji Meguro; tons of fan suggestions and tweaks, and much more!

Persona 4 Golden will be coming out way in Fall 2012.
