Update: Atlus has confirmed the release of Persona 4 on PSN. The title will be available on PlayStation 3 as a PS2 Classic on April 8 for $9.99.  

Original Story:

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4, the PlayStation 2 turned critically applauded Vita game, may be coming to PlayStation 3.

All there is to go on at the moment is a recently established ESRB rating of Persona 4 listing PlayStation 3 as its console. The assumption is this means the game is making its way to the PlayStation 2 classics section of the PlayStation Network, joining a number other Persona titles currently available of the platform.

Thanks to Michael Bell for the news tip!


Our Take
Considering the general difficulty of tracking down physical copies of Atlus games, seeing Persona 4 come to the PSN would be no surprise. The library of Persona games already available digitally on PSN only provides more evidence.
