Persona 3 Reload Adding Eiha & Kouha Skills for Light + Dark Elements

Following the latest information drop for Persona 3 Reload, Japanese outlets have begun sharing their impressions from previews of the game. Dengeki’s coverage, in particular, mentions the implementation of the Eiha and Kouha lineup of skills.

For those unaware, Persona 3 did not have these skills for the light and dark elements, with the only other options being the insta-kill Hama and Mudo. Persona 5 added these spells to diversify the combative applications of these elements, and it seems that Persona 3 Reload is taking some notes. The first Persona game also had these spells.

You can view their statement about these skills below, translated by our team’s Ryuji:

“Regarding Persona skills, we can confirm the addition of the Light-element attack Kouha and the Dark-element attack Eiha! Perhaps there will be a change in the skill structure of Ken Amada and Koromaru, who excel in Light and Dark?”

Maybe I’ll actually use Ken and Koromaru in the party now. That’ll be nice.

Atlus also confirmed that Persona 3 Reload will receive special teasers on “each official full moon.”

Persona 3 was initially a PlayStation 2 title that birthed the concept of Social Links that would follow in Persona 4 and Persona 5. Then, a director’s cut version named F.E.S. launched later, featuring a new playable epilogue called The Answer and added enhanced gameplay features.

Years later, Persona 3 Portable was released for the PSP, which removed The Answer and the ability to walk around town but added the option to play as a female protagonist and new post-game challenges.

Persona 3 Portable is now available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and PC.
