Persona 4 Golden, the PlayStation Vita role-playing game from Atlus, may be coming to PC, based on files uncovered through a third-party Steam app.

Speculation about a Persona game coming to Steam kicked off earlier this week, when Atlus teased “some exciting news to share at the PC Gaming Show,” which will air Saturday, June 13.

The website SteamDB has a recent listing that includes Steam icons for Persona 4 Golden, which was discovered and spread across Twitter. SteamDB developer Pavel Djundik said that this entry was legitimate on his Twitter account, writing, “got some information privately, does actually appear to be P4G.” Internet sleuths also discovered a support page for Persona 4 Golden, which appears to be associated with the anti-piracy software Denuvo used in PC games.

Gaming website Gematsu also cites “multiple sources” in a report that says the announcement is planned for the PC Gaming Show, and that a release will follow immediately after.

Atlus released Catherine Classic on Steam in 2019, a PC port of the original Catherine for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Persona 4 takes place in a small town in Japan, and the player is plunged into a murder mystery where they must collect allies and venture into a new, surreal television-themed world. Persona 4 Golden was released in 2012; it’s an updated and expanded version of the original 2008 RPG release. The Golden release included two new social links and expanded parts of the story, allowing for a few potential plot twists and different endings.
