Persona 3 Reload is a game that redefined the concept of remakes, including elements from Persona 3 Portable and Persona 3 FES.
The entire game was built from the ground up in Unreal Engine 4, and it redefined the concept of a remake as it is not a completely direct translation of the original game or its re-releases.
It might be unsurprising for some to know that the game will also receive an Expansion Pass. The game’s expansion pass includes the lost The Answer epilogue chapter from Persona 3 FES to new costumes and tunes, including those from Persona 4 Golden and Persona 5 Royal.
The only missing addition from this package of upcoming content is the female protagonist found within Persona 3 Portable.
The success of this remake has sparked rumors of remakes of other Persona games. The most prominent rumor now suggests that Persona 4 and Persona 2 are being remade in the same way that Persona 3 Reload was.
Persona 2 is one of the lesser-known Persona installments, so bringing it to new systems would be an amazing boon for fans of the Persona franchise.
Persona 3 Portable is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. The game is also available as one of Xbox Game Pass’s many titles.
