Persona 4 Golden released on PC last month after a surprise announcement (opens in new tab) – and then a surprise release – at the 2020 PC Gaming Show. It was a pleasant shock for Persona fans, particularly as the publisher doesn't often port its products and this is the first time a Persona game has been available to PC.
As Siliconera (opens in new tab) points out, hitting 500,000 players means Persona 4 Golden has sold more on PC in its debut month than it did on PlayStation Vita in Japan over several years combined.
Persona 4 Golden is available now on PC via Steam for $20, with a deluxe edition that comes with a digital soundtrack and artbook for $25.
