Atlus has shared a new trailer for the upcoming Persona 3 Reload, introducing one of the game’s party members, Koromaru. He is an actual playable dog who joins S.E.E.S in the later parts of the story. In battle, he boasts an affinity for Fire and Dark with the Persona Cerberus.
More character videos will be shared each week for the next several weeks.
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.
