5 Best Mods for Persona 4 Golden PC

    Persona 4 Golden will be available on January 19 for the Xbox One/Series X/S, PS4, Nintendo Switch, Windows 10 Store, and fans are eager to get their hands on the game despite its age. Truly, Persona 4 is a remarkable game. Though, the game’s re-release means one thing: mods! Lots and lots of mods.

    From descriptions to battle mods, Persona 4 Golden offers a variety of mods that players can choose from to download for their personal copy. If you’re not sure which mods to get, fear not! In this article, we have listed five of the best mods for Persona 4 Golden PC!

    Important to note: You will need a mod loader for the game to make the mods work as intended. It is also good to check whether it’s compatible with Steam or GamePass (or both).

    5. Persona 4 Golden: Detailed Descriptions by rudiger_gb

    Persona 4 Golden

    Starting at number five, we have the Detailed Descriptions for P4G which adds a great number of additions to the game. It attempts to rectify the problems that the base game has with new texts that can help the player while sticking as closely as possible to the game’s established writing style.

    Although this is a standalone mod, the author of the mod mentioned that they have faced issues with the base game’s font, so they recommend you pair the mod with Pixelguin’s “Slim Font” text mod for the best legibility.

    Some things that this mod adds in descriptions are:

    • Skill Descriptions
    • “Auto” Skills
    • Effect Chance
    • Passive & Support Skills
    • and more!

    4. Colorful Skills+ by Pixelguin

    Persona 4 Golden Colorful Skills

    Are the skill icons too boring for you? Maybe it’s the same color, and it confused you while playing the game. Do you simply want a little more flair to your game? Then we have the thing just for you! This mod made by Pixelguin is here to solve those problems!

    It’s a simple overhaul mod that adds different shades of colors to your game’s icons, which can help you easily identify which skills you need to use, identify which part of your inventory you are looking for and it allows you to avoid further confusion that the base game icons could bring.

    Not only that, but this mod also offers three styles of colored icon sets for the game:

    P4G Style (Recommended)

    • Colors are tweaked to match P4G’s aesthetic.
    • Mudo Skills are purple.

    P5R Style

    • Colors are a direct match with Persona 5 Royal
    • Mudo Skills are red.

    Both Styles

    • Equipment is colored yellow to match the P4 theme color.
    • Non-elemental skills (healing, buffs/debuffs, status effects) all use the same icon in P4, so they are all colored bright green.

    Important note: This mod requires the Aemulus Package Manager in order to work.

    3. Colorful Party Panel by AnimatedSwine37

    Persona 4 Golden Colorful Party Panel

    Do you want the best for your team? Perhaps you want to give a little spice to their icons and colors? If the answer is yes to either of them, then you’re in the right place! This mod changes the colors of the party panel in both dungeons and battles alongside HP and SP bars to change according to the colors of the teammates that are in your party.

    The mod also attempts to apply minor fixes to the vanilla party panel, like smoothing out rough edges, cropping artifacts, etc. It’s the go-to choice for players who wants to add more life to their party panels!

    Additional requirements for this mod are:

    1. Persona 4 Golden v1.1 (REV 2033)
    2. Reloaded-II
    3. Persona 4 Golden PC Modloader
    4. Aemulus Package Manager

    2. Summoning Arcana Cards by AYukikoSimp

    Persona 4 Summoning Arcana Cards

    Yu Narukami’s summon cards are nice, but what if your party members could do that too with their own arcana card arts? Well, this nifty mod answers that what-if question! This mod gives the characters their respective arcana cards when they summon their personas. All of the card arts are taken from Blazblue Cross Tag Battle and the P4 anime, while Yu keeps his card empty since he can use Personas from all the arcanas.

    Honorable Mentions:
