Atlus has had found some recent success with recent ports on newer hardware. With the Steam version of Persona 4 Golden reaching the best selling lists quite quickly, it’s evident the market for Atlas games is there. While these ports on other systems have done well, these releases have only encompassed the very few titles released before Persona 5. One might start to wonder if there are plans for an even greater remastered collection of some classic Persona titles. Of course, while the publisher has had a whole host of exclusivity agreements in the past, many of these ports haven’t been possible before. Yet, now it seems like Atlus is going all out and bringing Persona to more players than ever. This includes even their spin-off titles like Persona 5 Strikers on Switch. Persona has a decorated history of spin-off games and one more beloved is their fighting game. Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is finally being ported to PS4 and PC.

While the announcement is certainly interesting, the timing for this release seems right. As Persona 4 Golden has been doing exceptionally well on Steam, Atlus is looking to capitalize on that fandom. What better way than to include their most popular spin-off title for players to enjoy. While Switch and PS4 are the targets of this release, the original is available on Xbox. Players can still play the original on Series X/S hardware. These ports leave many to speculate about the overall future of the Persona series. While details further ports might still be on the way, it’ll be some time until Persona 4 Arena Ultimax makes its way to new systems. With the release planned for March 17, there’s plenty of time before fans can get a hold of the PC port.
