Persona 4 Golden has racked up half a million players in just a month.
The fan-favourite RPG was surprise-released on PC in June, making it the very first Persona game to have been ported to PC.
"We're excited to announce that Persona 4 Golden has hit 500,000 players on PC! Thank you for all your support!" Atlus West tweeted, along with art especially created by character designer Shigenori Soejima just for the occasion. "We hope you're enjoying #P4G and welcome back to the Midnight Channel!"

As Siliconera rightly reminds us, Persona 4 Golden's PC port has already sold more units in its debut month on PC than it did on PlayStation Vita in Japan, which had been out for years.
As Matt explained when the port was announced, Persona 4 received a much-expanded release on PlayStation Vita back in 2012 which introduced new story content, a new dungeon, plus numerous other additions and enhancements.
Rumours of a PC release began bubbling shortly before the PC release was confirmed when a SteamDB listing for Persona 4 Golden was discovered. Then came the discovery of a Denuvo support page for Persona 4 Golden, and a Gematsu report suggesting the title would launch during the PC Gaming Show - which turned out to be true, of course.
