At the Xbox Bethesda showcase there was a huge announcement for JRPG fans. Namely, Persona would be finding its way back over to the Xbox platform after a long absence. But when are these titles releasing? And on what systems will you be able to play this beloved series? Well, read on and find out.

What is the Persona series?

So the Persona series is a slice-of-life JRPG series of games that focus primarily on a core cast of characters using hidden powers to take down a larger and incredibly corrupt organisation. Persona 5 Royal is probably the most popular of the series, featuring you playing as a character called Joker and taking your fellow classmates on an adventure through the metaverse, taking on alter-egos known as the Phantom Thieves. Persona 4 Golden and Persona 3 Portable take on similar but different story trails, but the core feature of working as a team to take down your enemies in a turn-based system remains the same.

They’re historically extremely long titles, with Persona 5 Royal running for an incredible 125 hours. It’s a series with incredibly dedicated fans, and one that people have been crying out for release on other platforms for years now. Luckily, fans recently got their wish with the above announcement at the Xbox Bethesda showcase.

Persona 3 Golden release date, Persona 4 Royal release date, Persona 5 Portable release date

With a staggered release between each release of these updated versions to the Persona series, there are a few different release dates to talk you through. Persona 3 & 4 were originally PS2 games, now with the rehashed Golden and Royal versions (respectively) making their way to more modern platforms. Persona 5 Portable also brings the title to other platforms away from PS4 & PS3. The dates below represent when the game most recently released, as it differed between platforms.

  • Persona 3 Portable release date: January 19, 2023
  • Persona 4 Golden release date: January 19, 2023
  • Persona 5 Royal release date: October 21, 2022

Here are all the platforms this trio of Persona games are currently available on.

  • Persona 3 Portable platforms: PSP, Nintendo Switch, PS4, Windows, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S
  • Persona 4 Golden platforms: PS Vita, Windows, Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S
  • Persona 5 Royal platforms: PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Windows, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S

“ATLUS announced that the critically acclaimed Persona 5 Royal, Persona 4 Golden and Persona 3 Portable will be coming to Xbox and Windows. These beloved games will also be heading to Steam and PlayStation 5.”

What this also means is that for the very first time Persona 3 Portable and Persona 5 Royal will be moddable by PC players. While Persona 4 Golden is already on Steam, the other two titles have never been playable on PC before except for through emulation. Persona 5 Royal will drop on Game Pass later this year, and likely on other platforms at roughly the same time, on the 21st October 2022. Say goodbye to your Persona loving friends before the release, because you’ll find them sunk deep into the Metaverse for weeks after the launch of the game.

How much will they cost?

Price-wise, it’s unclear how much Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden and Persona 5 Royal will cost. Obviously if you have access to Game Pass, it’ll be included in your Game Pass subscription, and it’s possible that Persona 5 Royal on PlayStation 5 is a free upgrade to the original game. We’ll likely find out more information in the next few months, and it’ll clear up any confusion that we have.
