This is following the success of Persona 4 Golden on PC.
It’s no secret that Persona 4 Golden was a huge success on Steam. Following “much stronger than expected” sales on the platform, Sega talked about promoting ports for previously released titles to Steam and other “new platforms.” In the company’s recent financial results briefing, president and CEO Haruki Satomi said it’s hoping to release more Atlus titles across “various platforms.”
Interestingly, these could be straight-forward ports or remasters and remakes. “As for Steam, while we haven’t been actively releasing Atlus titles on PC, we felt that there was much potential there and put out a direct port of Persona 4 Golden for PC, and the user response was far beyond our expectations. That being said, we hope to release Atlus catalog titles across various platforms, whether as direct ports or in the form of remasters or remakes.”
This could mean titles like Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster releasing on Steam following its PS4 and Switch release in the West. There’s also the hope that critically acclaimed titles like Persona 5 Royal come to PC as well. However, one can’t discount the fandom behind titles like Persona 3 FES (especially when rumors swirling in June indicated that it would be ported along with Persona 4).
As always, time will tell so stay tuned. In the meantime, Sega has another RPG coming to Steam, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PS4 today with Ryu ga Gotoku Studio’s Yakuza: Like a Dragon. Check out our review for it here.
