Persona 4 Coming to PlayStation 3 as PS2 Classic?

Not an April Fool’s joke.

If you’ve never played Persona 4 on the PlayStation 2 and you can’t play Persona 4 Golden because you don’t own a PlayStation Vita, you’re given one last chance to rectify this. The Electronic Software Ratings Board (ESRB) has rated Persona 4 for the PlayStation 3.

This typically suggests that the title would be released a PlayStation 2 classic some time in the near future and the ESRB has an almost perfect track record when it comes to leaking re-releases.

The 2008 JRPG Persona 4 is widely considered to be one of the greatest games of all time, with the original PS2 title boasting a 90/100 rating on metacritic and and the 2012 re-release being the highest rated PS Vita game on metacritic, with a 93/100 rating.
