With Summer Game Fest just a few more hours away, the rumor mill is starting to go crazy once again. Surprisingly, after many years of holding back on their Persona franchise; especially with its 25th anniversary; it seems like we’re going to have many reveals building up across the rest of 2023. Just recently, we seemingly got a first hint that the rumored Persona 5 spinoff might be revealed soon with an Atlus-owned site titled P5T.jp getting updated.
Now, it seems like the same has happened with P3RE.jp, which we recently reported is very likely the site used by Atlus for the long-rumored Persona 3 remake. As mentioned, the site now links to a 404 which means that it is technically “live” but being worked on for publication. So, it seems the rumors of an announcement during the Xbox Showcase on Sunday might turn out to be true after all.
That isn’t all, Persona Central has retweeted an account that shared some supposed details on what we can expect from this remake of Persona 3. While we have to take it with a grain of salt, it seems the project might potentially be titled Persona 3 Reload, which still fits the P3RE.jp titling. They also hint that it’ll likely hit multiple consoles by November of this year.
They do highlight it’s a “full remake” but add it won’t be a “definitive” version. It might mean that we’re only getting the base game updated to the modern age rather than the Portable or FES versions. Reload is fitting instead of just going with the word remake, as it also matches with the Evokers which are a core element of the entry. With only a few more days to go, here’s hoping the confirmation is around the corner.
