Every Day's Great With Persona 4 Golden Out Now on PC

Persona 4 Golden has exited Vita exclusivity for an HD home on Steam.

Grab your snacks from your local Junes, because today during PC Gamer's PC Gaming Show, traditionally hosted during E3 week, we got surprising news. Atlus has ported Persona 4 Golden to PC via Steam, and it's out now. Like, right now.

However, this isn't a remaster, and is a pretty straightforward port. It supports a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio and has unlocked frame rate, but with it originally being a PlayStation 2 game, the action never really gets too crazy. It boasts support for higher HD resolutions as well. Judging from our own time playing the secretive port this past week, we can affirm it looks as one would expect any PlayStation 2-era game port to look: It looks sharper and smoother and better than it ever has. Just don't expect mouths to move when characters talk or anything.

The Persona 4 Golden port for Steam includes all the DLC from the Vita release, but won't introduce any new DLC. It hosts Steam achievements and trading cards, as well as full mouse and keyboard support in addition to gamepad support. Despite sounding like a pretty typical port, it does have one big new addition: Japanese audio. Yes, at last players can play Persona 4 with Japanese voice acting rather than the default English dub. Subtitles can also be turned on in English, Korean, Japanese, or Traditional Chinese.

Here at USgamer, we love the Persona series quite a bit. Persona 4 Golden even landed at number 9 on our Top 25 RPGs of All-Time list. Persona 4 Golden is out now on Steam for North America and Europe, and costs $19.99. A Deluxe Edition is also available for $24.99, which includes its can't miss soundtrack and a digital artbook alongside the game.
