The Japanese Persona Twitter account listed price points and release dates for the upcoming Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden ports. Both games will cost 1980 JPY ($14.40). We knew that they would appear on the Xbox consoles, and Atlus again confirmed that they will also be available on Xbox Game Pass.
You can watch the announcement trailer for the P3P and P4G release dates and price points here:

In the trailer, we get a look at the stories and systems of both games. Morgana, who was in Persona 5 and has since become a sort of mascot for the Persona series, narrates the video. Both games feature the characters in an after-school club (in a sense), where they fight against Shadows using their Persona powers.
Persona 3 Portable features the characters (SEES) wandering around Tartarus, which forms during the mysterious Dark Hour. Their goal is to explore Tartarus, as well as figure out what the Dark Hour is. P3P was the PSP port of the game and allowed you to play as a girl protagonist. However, it did not have the Answer arc, which followed Aigis and the SEES after the events of the main game.
Persona 4 Golden is a murder mystery. The informal Investigation Team found a strange TV world full of Shadows, and realized that someone is shoving people into the TVs to kill them. Like the above P3P, P4G was the enhanced version of the game. It added new characters (and social links), as well as some new endings.
Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden will come out for the Xbox Game Pass, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Windows PC on January 19, 2023. They will also appear on the Nintendo Switch and PS4. The Western prices for P3P and P4G are not available yet.
