Megami Tensei Wiki

Persona 3 Reload (abbreviated to P3R or P3RE) is a role-playing video game published by Atlus, who also co-developed the game with P-Studio. It is a modern remake of Persona 3.

Persona 3 Reload has been remade from scratch to match the scale of Persona 5. The remake is specifically based on the original Persona 3, rather than the game's other enhanced ports, FES and Portable. Although it includes changes and additions from these games, it does not include the female protagonist or The Answer epilogue during its initial launch.[2][3]

The game was officially announced in June 2023, and was released on February 2nd, 2024 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Microsoft Windows via Steam and the Microsoft Store. It is also available from launch on Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass subscription service.

In March 6th, 2024, Atlus announced they would release an Expansion Pack which includes a remake of Persona 3 FES's The Answer, this time known as Episode Aigis - The Answer, soundtracks for Persona 4 Golden and Persona 5 Royal and Velvet Costumes.[4]

There is now a chance for an ally to request to search the next floor up alone. If accepted, they will temporarily leave the party. The ally will hand over any items they've collected upon rejoining the party on the next floor. The map for that floor will also be partially filled out.
    • The Reaper can now follow the party up to the next floor if it is currently chasing them, only stopping at border floors.
    • Shadows can now climb the elevated platforms scattered throughout Tartarus if chasing the party.
  • The behavior and resistances of nearly all Full Moon Operation bosses are altered to various degrees.

    • During Takya's battle, Takaya can use Theurgy. This only can be used if Takaya's HP is low.
  • The Monad Depths have been repurposed:[12]
    • The "Monad Door" can appear sporadically. It contains a Treasure Chest with valuable items and a powerful Shadow that protects it. Winning will also activate a special Shuffle Time that grants the opportunity to obtain Major Arcana cards.
    • The "Monad Passage" is instead a long hallway with several Shadows, and defeating them will reward weapons, costumes, and exclusive items.
  • New Personas have been added.
    • Some of the Personas have been renamed, such as Pyro Jack being renamed to Jack-o'-Lantern.

  • Personas have had their stats and skill pools altered.
  • Velvet Room mechanics have been modernized. Quality of life changes, such as the ability to select inherited skills, have been added.[16]
  • Most bosses now have scripted events that trigger during a certain HP threshold. All attacks that would exceed the damage threshold are automatically blocked, preventing the party from instantly killing them in a single turn, even with attacks such as Armageddon.
  • Shuffle Time's cards are manually selected.[11]
    • In addition, accumulating Major Arcana cards will give the party lingering effects that last until leaving Tartarus. Reaching the maximum number of Major Arcana cards (which gradually increases to a capacity of 5) will result in an "Arcana Burst," causing the Minor Arcana cards to rank up and have their effects strengthened.[12]
    • The Sword Minor Arcana card now gives a random Skill Card instead of a weapon for a party member.
    • Minor Arcana cards now have Jack, Queen and King tiers.
    • Picking a Persona Card that the protagonist already has in his stock will now give increased experience to all Personas with a matching Arcana in his stock.
  • Incense Cards, Plumes of Dusks and Vision Quests have been removed from the game. Normal Incenses replace the Incense Cards in this game.
  • The optional Margaret boss fight from Portable has been removed.

  • Wave 3: Episode Aigis -The Answer- - Releases on September 10, 2024.[4][1]


Background & Premise[]

The development is headed by younger staff at Atlus, with Takuya Yamaguchi as the director and Ryota Niitsuma as producer, both taking over the prior roles of Katsura Hashino. Within their development process, they pursued "deepening" rather than evolution when defining their game.[2] Research of the game started in 2019, and started the actual development late in the same year.[27]

One of the key elements of their goals in developing the game was to have it be played on a similar scale as Persona 5, as it has become the standard for play for fans of the series at that time, both in local Japan and overseas.[3]

The subtitle "Reload" was chosen for the abbreviation of "R" similarly to Persona 5 Royal, the definitive edition of the game. It also implies the meaning of a remake, but "Persona 3 Remake" was not chosen as it wasn't interesting. Aside from the abbreviation, Reload was specifically chosen as "RE" is commonly used in games, but to match the aesthetics of the Persona series, Reload was also picked due to the Evoker having the form of a gun. "Reloaded" would be grammatically correct as a title, but it would focus too much on the image of actually using a gun. According to developers, it took a lot of time to reach an official decision, but the team immediately agreed on the final idea.[3]

According to Kazuhisa Wada, although staff are normally uncertain about whether fans will accept their work or if they could've improved on it after finishing a game, they instead found themselves satisfied with P3R and the final result they've produced.[3]

Game Design[]

The purpose of the additional side stories was to flesh out certain characters as individuals better, as the main story based their roles around an "ensemble drama."[2]

According to Yamaguchi, he felt like the 1 More! system has not been fully utilized in boss battles in the series in general as you cannot exploit their weaknesses, hence the introduction of the Theurgy system. Aside from that, the Showtimes of Persona 5 Royal have been well-received, and wanted to add a similar action to that. Additionally, Theurgy encourages variety in playstyle past simply exploiting weaknesses and performing melee attacks if impossible: the criteria for filling Theurgy faster is rewarded through actions that stray from the general routine of exploiting weaknesses. Because the requirements differ between party members, the mechanic also gives them a sense of individuality.[7]

Art Direction[]

P3RE BoxArt

Persona 3 Reload key art, featuring the protagonist and Thanatos.

Azusa Shimada, the game's main character designer, explains the thought that was put into the box art of Reload. On the composition, she struggled with choosing whether to have the artwork consist of a group picture like with recent entries in the series, or whether to focus on the protagonist only like with the original Persona 3. After collecting various packages from the series, films included, and using them as reference to contemplate the direction of Reload, she focused on a composition that brought the main character to the forefront, but after that she needed to focus on distinguishing it from Persona 3's box art, which also comprises of just the protagonist and Thanatos. In finding a balance between being too ephemeral and being too cool, Shimada wanted to express the protagonist, who possesses a Persona, resolutely confronting his inevitable fate. The team, as they pursued a composition that stood out, they ended up with a form that was a homage to the original version.[7]

Sprite work and overall art direction was improved, as Shimada wanted to express the clear impression that it's a new, improved work, and the final result was achieved by exploring various possibilities and pursuing the latest painting techniques. This time, realistic lighting was incorporated, such as changing the color of the sprites as well as the rim light depending on the environment.[7]

The new uniforms were also designed by Shimada. When approaching the remaster, she wanted to incorporate accents that would visually lift the player's mood, consulting original designer Shigenori Soejima in the process. Compared to before, where the cast was only equipped with an armband and holster, Shimada aimed for a sense of realism by adding more equipment. Although the team at first considered having the cast wear their uniforms evenly, they've decided to accent their individuality through how they wear their uniforms, with Shimada consulting Soejima and the development team. As it takes a lot of courage to come up with new designs for a remake of a game everyone loves, there was a lot of trial and error.[7]

The character models' head-to-body ratio has been raised to add to the realism, and Shimada supervised and cooperated with the modeling staff. That being said, rough image of the bust up of the characters has been drawn before modeling the characters in 3D.[7]

While upgrading the visual expression of the game through the head-to-body ratio, one of their goals was to recreate the image of the original version in everyone's minds while under the feeling of an increased resolution. The developers were conscious with modifying the head-to-body ratio as to not take away from the atmosphere of the original. The concept for Tartarus' design was completed early on, as they had assumed they'd need to revamp it to fit the characters' redesigns. In addition, new locations were added, such as Strega's hideout: a lot of thought was put into depictions like this without having the original version as reference, so none of them were finished easily.[28]

Menu & Logo Design[]

P3RE Menu

The main menu in Reload, directed by Tomohiro Kumadai.

Art Director Tomohiro Kumadai formerly worked as a developer elsewhere, and as a player of Persona 3 was inspired by its UI and how it has the power to represent and symbolize the overall image of the work. During his work on Reload, he thought about how to capture the charm when he played the game using modern technology. The blue color of P3 left an impression on Kumagai, reminding him of water and bubbles, only to realize that the original developers had this exact image in mind in a recent discussion.[28]

He not only enhanced the menu's water motifs for Reload, but would portray depth within the protagonist's psyche, evoking the feeling of "sinking into your own mind to check information and your relationships with others" when accessing the menu screen. Also, P3R combines the beauty of the sea seen in Tatsumi Port Island and Yakushima alongside the protagonist's sea of soul. Other conscious elements include the shimmering and gradation of water, and the sparkle and reflection of glass.[28]

While cooperating with the motion team, who worked on the protagonist's movements on the screen. They produced a unique and detailed model for the menu, using made animation skeletons and polygons to portray the delicacy of his facial expressions, the shimmering music player and the feeling of floating underwater. Poses and expressions are changed to find the best way to show each item. They were careful with the shadows, the facial expression and the swaying of the hair. Kumadai humorously made demands on making the protagonist more ephemeral and so beautiful that he can hear the voice actor.[28]

On the direction of the game's logo, the "Persona 3" part of it was kept as is to convey the message that the fundamentals of the game have not changed, but because it is not purely an "HD remaster," the look of "Reload" was made to look more modern to emphasize that there are new elements to the game. It is explained that even the Gothic font was a point they were particular about, incorporating both the modernity of Reload and the idea behind the original.[28]

Around 50 logo ideas were made before finally settling on the current idea, all gradually with consideration rather than at once. Also, beforehand, the developers have considered updating the original P3 logo, but kept it as is after settling on the game's direction.[28]

  24. "You must be tired from all the excitement. You should go to bed early. As they say, "The early bird catches the bookworm!" ...Please forgive the pun. *chuckle*"
    —Shuji Ikutsuki, Persona 3

    "I'm sure you're worn out from all these formalities. You may want to consider going to bed early. As they say, the early bird catches the bookworm! Get it? Bookworm, because you're students? Clever, isn't it?"
    —Shuji Ikutsuki, Persona 3 Reload

    P3P JP:
    The P3R dialogue above was changed to better suit the Japanese version's transcript.
  25. "All right class, settle down. You can show your scores to one another later." in Persona 3 FES, but Reload uses "each other" instead." The line hasn't been changed between FES and Persona 3 Portable. "I'm Junpei Iori. Nice to meet ya." in FES, but has been changed to "Call me Junpei. Junpei Iori." Also, Junpei's title has been changed from "Student" to "Friendly Student." Kenji's first Social Link event: both the dialogue and its responses were changed.
