Altus, the publisher of the upcoming “Persona 5,” has revealed the release date for the PS2 Classic version of “Persona 4.” According to a report from VG247 on April 4, the digital re-release for the PS3 will be made available on the Playstation Store next week.
After the store is updated on April 8, players can download “Persona 4” for $9.99, which is the standard price for PS2 Classic titles. The company also revealed that the release date has a special meaning as the story in the video game is set three days after the software product’s launch date on the Playstation Store. You can find some screenshots from “Persona 4: Golden” on the Playstation Vita with the slideshow to the left of this article and the comments from the company below:
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
Along with the re-release, Atlus will be bringing the upcoming “Persona 5” exclusively to the PS3. The sequel will be similar to “Persona 3” and the aforementioned “Persona 4” from the gameplay perspective. Some of the story elements are going to be different, however.

“Persona 5” is targeting a winter release window in Japan later this year. Due to the translation process associated with a software product that contains a lot of texts and voices, Altus won’t be able to release the English version of the role-playing game until next year in North America and other western regions.
