Includes Hori accessories, skin, and stickers.

Atlus has announced a ‘Solid Gold Premium Edition’ of Persona 4 Golden to release alongside the standard edition this fall. 

For $69.99, the special edition includes:

  • Persona 4 Golden: One of the best RPGs of all time is bigger and better than ever before, enhanced to take full advantage of the power of Vita.
  • Hori Hard Pouch: Sturdily crafted and stylishly customized, this case has a flap for storing PS Vita cards that also guards the screen.
  • Hori Face Cover: Offers lightweight yet effective protection without blocking any major ports, meaning you don’t have to take it off to play!
  • Protective Skin: Adorns your PS Vita with the stylish, vibrant aesthetics of Persona 4 Golden and also includes 8 matching character wallpapers. This same skin is being offered in limited quantities as a bonus for fans who pre-order Persona 4 Golden at participating retailers.
  • Stickers: Featuring some of the popular stars of Persona 4, these stickers can be used to decorate anything you can think of!

Only 10,000 copies of the limited edition will be produced. Atlus encourages consumers to pre-order the edition ahead of time.

“What better way to celebrate the expanded and enhanced version of one of our best games of all time–not to mention Japan’s best-selling PS Vita game of all time more than twice over–than a premium edition packed with rare extras?” mused Aram Jabbari, Manager of Public Relations and Sales at Atlus.

“The release of Persona 4 Golden in Japan marked the single largest spike in hardware sales since the start of the year and it continues to be among the country’s most popular games. Acknowledging comparable levels of excitement in North America–indicated by projections that P4G will be the most pre-ordered single-platform game in Atlus history–we are thrilled to offer the region-exclusive Solid Gold Premium Edition.

“It is loaded with as many prized collectibles as possible, all of which are the exact same items made available in Japan, down to the use of the original title, Persona 4: The Golden. We hope it will be a treat for series faithful and an irresistible temptation for current and prospective PS Vita system owners. Fans are advised to resist the urge to test the Premium Edition’s authenticity by biting on it.”

Persona 4 Golden is due this fall. Find high-res images of the premium edition at the gallery.

    If they had announced this right way, definitely.  Announcing it this late is kind of a dick move.  I already have a deal locked in at newegg and I don’t want to lose it just for some stickers.  The case is really the only tempting thing about this but it’s too late.

    And still no word on an european release. Hey, I know I can import it and whatanot, but I’d prefer supporting the series in the PAL regions.

    I waited for Persona 3 Portable and it paid out in the end *stares at SMT Persona 3 Portable Collector’s Edition*

    Ghostlight, I’m counting on you for this one! And for Soul Hackers. And Shin Megami Tensei IV :3

    • PrinceHeir

      Soul Hackers and SMT4!!!

      hope you EU people get it as well :)

      • FaithlessMr

         We’re getting Survivor Overclocked and Survivor 2, so anything can happen really. In Ghostlight we trust :D

  • Kobracon

    Region-exclusive?! Does that mean my region has no chance of getting this?

  • PrinceHeir

  • RyougaZell

    Finally got around to pre-ordering this at my local GameStop today. Man, when was the last time I went in there?

    Going to go in every week and put five bucks down. At least that way it won’t seem like I’m spending $70 on this when release day comes around.
