Persona 3 Reload Brings the Classic JRPG to New Consoles in Early 2024
Persona 3 Reload will feature updated graphics, gameplay, and music
In a surprising turn of events, Atlus made a significant announcement during Microsoft’s Xbox and Starfield showcase on Saturday, despite an 11th-hour leak that may have dampened the surprise. The renowned publisher revealed their plans to remake the beloved 2006 title, Persona 3, for modern platforms. The upcoming release, titled Persona 3 Reload, aims to breathe new life into the PlayStation 2 classic by incorporating modern graphics developed using Epic’s powerful Unreal Engine. Additionally, gameplay enhancements introduced in 2016’s Persona 5 will be integrated into the remake, promising an improved and immersive experience for players.
Although Atlus released a trailer alongside their announcement, it remains unclear whether Persona 3 Reload will include elements from the expanded 2008 re-release, Persona 3 FES, or the 2010 PlayStation Portable port, Persona 3 Portable. The latter introduced a brand-new female protagonist, who quickly garnered a dedicated fan following. Whether or not she will make an appearance in the remake remains a mystery, leaving fans eagerly anticipating further details.
