The Persona saga confirms its platforms beyond PC Game Pass and Xbox, along with its official translation
The arrival of Japanese games in the West has been very staggered with many titles, losing translations into our language along the way. The expansion of the JRPG has been notorious over the years, but sagas like Persona have encountered many problems at the time of distribution in various countries.
On Steam, protagonist of this news, Persona 4 Gold is only available in English or Japanese, so the announcement in the past Xbox and Bethesda Showcase and the arrival of this, persona 5 and Persona 3 Portable to GamePass They made many see the light at the end of the road. Now, and after some clues, Atlus and Koch Media have confirmed to us thanks to a press release that these 3 games are coming to steam.
The arrival of this trio of games in the Microsoft catalog was anticipated as a temporary exclusive, since neither Atlus nor Koh Media advanced the PS5 and Steam or Epic Games logos in their respective previews. The arrival of this trio of games on Steam, in addition to doing it in Spanish, is a joy for players who could not be limited by language with these works before.
But when will they be released? What we did know in advance was that Persona 4 Golden and Persona 3 would arrive in 2023, but Persona 5 raised a lot of questions. Given the silence of the Japanese developer and distributor and that possible temporary exclusivity mentioned above, many of us assumed that it would arrive months apart, something denied by Atlus. So, Persona 5 is coming on October 21 to Vapor, the same day it lands on Xbox and PC Game Pass.
This has unfortunately meant that the fan translation currently in development for Persona 4 Golden, although 10 years old, has been canceled forever. The Spanish community had been working non-profit for years on an unofficial translation to open the saga to more and more players, something that has been truncated very logically, with the announcement of Atlus.
