‘Persona 4 Golden’ announces 500,000 copies sold on PC


Persona 4 Golden has now sold more than half a million copies on PC. In an announcement, the JRPG from Atlus is now enjoying the benefits of publishing on Steam.

So far, the release of Persona 4 Golden on PC has been a smart move for Atlus. Demand for the title is a long-recorded detail for the franchise. As Atlus dipped its toes into the PC market, they now discover that the demand is robust.

P4 Golden success is a good sign for Atlus

In a recent tweet, the official Atlus Twitter account proclaimed their first 500,000 sale milestone. Also attached was a celebratory sketch from Soejima Shigenori. Soejima is the game’s long-time character designer and a legend within the community.

“We’re excited to announce that Persona 4 Golden has hit 500,000 players on PC!” said the tweet. “Thank you for all your support!”

Speculation started for the studio when Atlus started their Steam Creator page. This lead-up culminated in a surprise release during last month’s PC Gaming Show. In it, Atlus released P4G, with a lot of fanfare from the fans of the game.

The port of P4G came from Atlus Japan, which is a positive in this case. If the original Japanese dev team is handling the port, this means the studio is gearing for more. It suggests that Atlus’ extensive library of games is ready for the PC market.

If this is the case, Atlus can expect more sales are coming their way. The Persona community around the world is hungry for more of the franchise. Many will even accept a PC port of many older titles from the studio.

Sega looking to push more PC ports for Japanese titles

Apart from Persona 4 Golden, publisher Sega is looking towards more PC ports. Sega found success recently with the smart move of pushing PC ports for Japanese titles. One of the most prime evidence of these is the recent success of the Yakuza series.

P4 Golden’s marketplace performance is a superb indicator of things to come. Fans are still waiting for a Persona 5 PC release, or at least Persona 3. P4G itself is a solid game to play, even if the game is now 12 years old.

The game looks superbly crisp and well-optimized, even without a ton of bells and whistles. The game also plays even on Integrated Graphics, which means many players can enjoy it. Personal 4 Golden is available on Steam and has an “overwhelmingly positive” score.
