In the December 28 issue, #1828 of the weekly Famitsu magazine, Atlus revealed new details for the upcoming Persona 3 Reload.
One feature players can anticipate is the capability to, when connected online, view the options other players chose across each in-game day. Alongside activities like stat-raising tasks or Social Link events, players will also be able to see the most commonly chosen answers for questions during class.
These functionalities appear identical to the same systems in Persona 4 Golden and Persona 5.
You can view a summary of this information translated below via our team’s Ryuji:
By connecting to the Internet, you can view several statistics, such as what kind of activities all of the players have done on a specific day or bring up a chart to the most commonly answered question in the classroom.
The Velvet Room is also introduced, with the usual Fusion, Compendium and Elizabeth’s Requests all shown.
Elizabeth’s Requests can range from fusing specific Personas to bringing her items and even taking her somewhere.
Persona 3 Reload is a remake that aims to capture and expand upon the original Persona 3 experience with enhanced gameplay, story, and characters. The protagonist finds himself attending Gekkoukan High School, where he quickly becomes acquainted with the Dark Hour and Tartarus. He then joins S.E.E.S, a group that seeks to end the supernatural conundrums with their Persona abilities.
This entry birthed many systems seen in the modern mainline Persona entries, such as Social Links and the Calendar. The same general gameplay loop was also initially utilized here, comprised of social activities during the day and Shadow battling at nighttime. Players can fuse Personas for the protagonist, as he’s the only one capable of using multiple.
Persona 3 Reload will be the fourth version of Persona 3. There was the original PlayStation 2 release followed by FES that enhanced specific gameplay elements while adding the Answer epilogue, and then Portable on the PSP, which removed the Answer but added the female protagonist option.
Persona 3 Reload does not feature the Answer epilogue or the female protagonist and instead bolsters the identity of the original game with several quality-of-life upgrades alongside more characterization.
Persona 3 Reload will launch on February 2, 2024, for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Windows, and Steam.
