Persona 4 Golden is an enhanced and remastered version of Persona 4, originally released for the PlayStation 2 console. The game takes place in a rural town in Japan, where the protagonist and his friends live out their daily lives. When strange murders begin occurring in town, they become involved in the investigation and discover that there is more to the world than meets the eye. Persona 4 Golden features additional story content, new Personas to collect, revamped battle mechanics, and support for touchscreen controls. It is an excellent choice for fans of JRPGs or Shin Megami Tensei games.
The gameplay is similar to that of previous entries in the series; the player navigates through a high school environment, taking control of the protagonist Yu Narukami. Alongside regular school life activities such as attending classes and studying for exams, the player explores dungeons using characters called Personas. These Personas are used in combat against Shadows, which are beings that Persona-users must defeat in order to progress through the game.
