Persona 4 Golden has shifted 1m copies on Steam

Atlus cult favourite RPG Persona 4 Golden has shifted more than one million copies in its first year on Steam.

The milestone was revealed by the Atlus Twitter account, in which the games firm thanked the community for their support. The title was released on Steam on June 13th 2020 and managed to shift 500,000 units in its first month on sale.

Persona 4 Golden is an enhanced remake of PlayStation 2 title Persona 4, which launched in 2008. Golden was initially released for the PlayStation Vita handheld console in 2012, which caused a surge in popularity for the title.

When it was released on Steam last year, Persona 4 Golden debuted in fourth place.

Following the game's success, Sega Sammy CEO Haruki Satomi said that the company was looking to do more remakes and ports of Atlus' portfolio for PC.

“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,” Satomi said.

“That being said, we hope to release Atlus catalogue titles across various platforms, whether as direct ports or in the form of remasters or remakes."
