Persona 4 really is coming to PlayStation 3, publisher Atlus USA has confirmed, with launch just days away.


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.
