“Persona 4: Golden” was first released in Japan on June 14, 2012. The North American release then followed on Nov. 20, 2012. The enhanced port adds improved graphics along with extra contents when compared to the original Playstation 2 version that was released in 2008.

To celebrate the achievement, Atlus will be offering a special discount for the downloadable version of “Persona 4: Golden.” From Dec. 11 until Jan. 8 of next year, players will be able to purchase the handheld role-playing game for 4,980 yen on the Playstation Store in Japan.

The sales success of “Persona 4: Golden” should bode will for “Persona 5,” which was recently announced as a Playstation 3 exclusive title. The sequel is set in the same modern-day high-school setting as the two previous games. A port to the Playstation Vita remains a possibility due to the performance of the prior title.

Atlus has confirmed that “Persona 5” will be coming out sometime in the winter season of next year. The release dates for other regions have not yet been announced. A set of “Persona 4: Golden” can be seen in the slideshow to the left of this article.
