When Persona 3 came to PSP, Atlus had to cut some of the content. When a portable Persona 4 was decided upon, producer Katsura Hashino said that they originally wanted to bring it to PSP, but couldn’t without content cuts. On PSV, they realized they can make a game better than the PS2 version. Persona 4: The Golden will retain the quality of the PS2 original and add new elements at the same time, promised Hashino.
