Atlus has accidentally leaked the announcements Persona 3 Reload and Persona 5 Tactica via trailers posted on Instagram that have since been taken down.

Persona 3 Reload is a remake of Persona 3 and Persona 5 Tactica is a Persona 5-based strategy RPG. The trailers revealed Persona 5 Tactica will launch on November 17, while Persona 3 Reload will launch in early 2024.

Gematsu is reporting the games will be officially announced during the Xbox Game Showcase on Sunday, June 11.

Both games are listed coming to the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, and Xbox Game Pass. However, as these are likely for the Xbox Games Showcase, it is possible the games will launch on more platforms.

I very, very rarely care about remakes but Persona 3 Reload is going to be an exeception.
Can't freaking wait!

Why is a remake of Persona 3 necessary? Didn't they just release an HD version of Persona 3 Portable?

About 3 years back in their yearly survey, they asked fans of the series which games in the series they wanted remasters for and which they wanted remakes for. To my knowledge they used the results of that survey to choose the order they remaster and remake the games in, so since 3 and 4 were the highest on the remaster survey they remastered those first, and since 3 was also the highest on the remake survey they remade it first as well. I don't think it mattered to them that they just remastered P3, they wanted to give the people the remake that came in first place in the survey which just so happened to also be P3. Presumably we will also see remakes for 1, 2, and 4 at some point, but those will be later, I imagine the next remake will end up releasing after Persona 6.

It has no definitive version since FES lacks direct control of your allies and Portable (the one they remastered) is basicly a demake they made so they could get it running on the PSP. There's also lots of room for improvement on the gameplay side in general, but the story is on point and imo as good as P5, so I think it's about as good a candidate for a remake as they come.

Not only that, but FES forces you to play as a boy, eww!

Because it's a masterpiece and it deserves it.
Also, mechanically the game is quite aged, it really does benefit a lot to get a modern treatment.

Wouldn't the better question be, if they are going to remake it, why bother with the HD re-release at all?

Xbox should really make this series exclusive to their platform as Sony did with FF, until they can buy Sega as a whole. Perhaps also port it to the Switch for extra sales and add salt to the injury.

So you want Xbox to buy an entire publisher to block PS gamers from accessing all future Sega games because you can't play one game on your Xbox?

I have a PlayStation and a pc so I don't see why that has to do with anything.

However if Microsoft want to become the Netflix of gaming they will need to burry PlayStation. Best way to do that is to disrupt the third party supply route to PlayStation.

Considering PlayStation is dead set on becoming a GaaS platform I even doubt it would hurt gamers that much.

I disagree that MS needs to bury Sony in order for them to see success. MS needs to be competitive and offer gamers a system that has a diverse collection of games from AA , Indie and AAA. MS studios need to pump out hits that attract gamers more than anything else. While grabbing top devs and studios can accomplish this goal, the goal is to provide a service that allows everyone to play their games everywhere which should always be the focus.

Agreed. They should go after SEGA next.

Zero possibility of that happening. Money isn't everything. The game would sell beyond shit on the xbox. It would massively tank in Japan and Atlus would have a huge problem on its hands.

For business money literally is everything, short therm and long therm. Also they could still release it on Switch and still make a massive profit. Microsoft can't beat Nintendo their first party games are way too popular for that. But they surely could beat and burry PlayStation. The balance really is quite brittle.

Machiavellian Qwark (on 09 June 2023)

Yes, money does do a lot of work but if MS could just throw money towards Japanese developers and grab some studios they would have done it already. If you believe that MS has not made a pitch like they have done with ABK and Bethesda and a host of other devs you are kidding yourself. The thing is while money is important, its evident its not the sole important item for Japanese business.

But xbox fanbase doesnt even play those kind of games, I don't see the point.

How would you know. I would believe that Atlus would be able to know more than you after putting a bunch of their games on GP.

Microsoft paid for those ports.

If Xbox doesn't want to be third forever they need to offer games PlayStation does not. Achieving that trough moneyhats is fair game, Halo and Gears also where not made by 1st party Devs for a long time and it kinda made them win against PS, which only caught up after it was too late. Now that Sony is setting itself up to fail with at least 8 Gaas projects and Bungie is the perfect time to strike for Xbox to do what made PS4 win it's respective gen. Releasing great exclusive games only available on their platforms (and Switch for extra sales as PS is doing with pc).

Halo was made by a 1st party dev. Microsoft bought Bungie in 2000 and Halo released in 2001.
