The classic and much-praised RPG will release via the North American PSN as a PS2 classic playable on PS3, Atlus confirmed.

Expect it on April 8 – next week’s PlayStation Store update.

“Astute fans will recognize the date is three days before the main character transfers to Yasogami High School, so if you’re the type of super-dedicated player that wants to play the game exactly to the calendar date, there’s still time,” Atlus said.

The surprise port was outed by an ESREB rating earlier this week, and Atlus has confirmed to Eurogamer the release is for North America only.

One of the most popular entires in the soprawling Shin Megami Tensei franchise, Persona 4 was remade for Vita as Persona 4 Golden
