Persona 4 Golden was released on Steam two months ago and boy, was it a success. The game sold over 500,000 units in only one month. It also received critical reception from fans, with an outstanding 96 percent approval rating.

The success of Persona 4 Golden has given hopes to several fans that other games may also be ported to PC, and SEGA might finally start taking PC players seriously. During the Q1 2021 investor call, SEGA COO Haruki Satomi and CFO Koichi Fukazawa said that sales of Persona 4 Golden were much higher than they initially expected.

They also emphasized that many of their older games will now be ported to PC and newer consoles. The company will also start developing new games by keeping the PC in mind from the beginning. You can read the complete transcript of the meeting here, however, it is in Japanese.

“We remastered Persona 4 Golden, a title previously released on the PlayStation Vita, and launched it for sale on Steam this fiscal year. Because of the game’s critical acclaim and its low selling price, sales were much stronger than expected. We will continue to actively promote porting previously released titles to Steam and new platforms.” the men said in an investor call. “We are also negotiating with platform holders for new games in the future, and we’re considering ways to sell under favorable conditions for each title. Among those, there are measures such as preparing PC versions of the games from the beginning, with multi-platform releases in mind.”

It is true that SEGA has started taking care of PC players. They recently ported many of the games in the long-running Yakuza franchise to PC. The latest game in the series, Like A Dragon, will also release on PC at launch.
