Persona 4 Golden

Persona 4 Golden review Switch

System: Switch
Release Date: January 19, 2023
Developer: Atlus
Publisher: Atlus

Releasing originally on the PlayStation 2 in 2008, Persona 4’s small town of Inaba is not unlike my own home town. A small, sleepy community with one grocery store, one gas station, and if you drive by it and blink, you might miss the town altogether. Small communities are generally safe, right? Moving there, one might feel secure leaving their doors unlocked, with no real worries about what could happen while you run to the convenience store. Inaba, though, has a murderer on the loose – one that seems to kill through very non-traditional means. First, a local TV personality, and next a teenage student… Is anyone safe anymore in Inaba? How does one catch a killer that leaves no trace of their crime? Why do the victims show up beforehand on the eerie Midnight Channel when it rains? Why are students being targeted in the first place? Persona 4 Golden’s murder mystery has many layers, and by taking control of our Protagonist and his friends can we really solve this situation and save the lives of those targeted?

In this week’s issue of Famitsu, Persona team business producer Atsushi Nomura and Persona team director Daisuke Yajima discussed the work and challenges involved in bringing Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden to new platforms.

Persona 4 Golden did end up on PC back in 2020, but Persona 3 Portable is making its first appearance outside of the PSP. Both also just appeared on home consoles for the first time.

A ton of gameplay has been published for the new Swtich version of Persona 4 Golden. Nearly two hours of footage shows off Atlus’ RPG.

Three entries in Atlus’ acclaimed Persona series have finally been confirmed for Switch – specifically Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal. Persona 5 Royal will launch first on October 21.

Persona 3 Portable is the third version of the RPG. It added new features, including a playable female protagonist, new story elements and music, and a new interface.
