2023 is looking like a crazy year for Persona fans. Just recently, Persona 5 Royal finally made its way to Nintendo Switch with remasters of Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden already in some form of development. Yet, it seems that there’s one more project that may revive a Persona classic in a big way. Following a recent tease by Atlus on more unannounced titles heading our way in 2023, we’re kicking off the year with a rumor hinting at Persona 3 getting a complete remake for modern consoles.
Keep in mind that this remains a rumor for now, but this would make for quite an interesting development. It also comes from the same source that correctly announced the remasters and even the return of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. We all assumed that Persona 6 is just around the corner for an announcement, but it would be quite something if they re-focused their efforts on modernizing the third entry in the franchise, one that would redefine its success and how future entries would be developed.
The possibility of a remake for 3 also opens up the possibility for plans for the fourth receiving the same treatment. Of course, we don’t know just how far they’ll go with these new adaptations and if the rumor is true. After the growing success of the fifth entry worldwide, it’s not too surprising they want to bank on its success, but it does leave us wondering just what the future might look like for the series if they remained focused on previous entries rather than pushing forward with its next official title, especially since Persona 5 released back in 2016.
