After the game’s long-rumoured existence was finally confirmed during last month’s Xbox Games Showcase, fans have been clamouring for more on Persona 3 Reload, the “reimagining” of the original Persona 3 that features a revamped battle system, improved graphics and gameplay, quality-of-life enhancements, new audio featuring an all-new English voice-over, a remastered soundtrack with new arrangements and heaps more.
Now, thanks to a panel at Anime Expo 2023, we have a brand-new trailer with new looks at Persona 3 Reload in action.
While it’s only a minute long, the new trailer is exciting for Persona 3 fans because it debuts our first look/listen of the remake’s English VO cast alongside some new snippets of gameplay. You’ll be able to hear Yukari Takeba (Heather Gonzalez), Junpei Iori (Zeno Robinson), Fuuka Yamagishi (Suzie Yeung), Mitsuru Kirijo (Allegra Clark) and Akihiko Sanada (Alejandro Saab) in the trailer below:
Play the game like never before with a revamped battle system, cutting-edge graphics and gameplay, enhanced audio featuring all-new English voice-over, and much more. Dive into the Dark Hour and awaken the depths of your heart!
Persona 3 Reload is set to release worldwide in early 2024, on PS5, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC. It’ll also be a day one release on Xbox Game Pass.
For what it’s worth, if you’re completely new to Persona 3 and looking for an education ahead of this release or you’re just keen to replay an old favourite, both Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden are available on modern platforms. We covered them and think they’re absolutely worth your time, saying, “…as long as you can deal with graphics that were originally made for a PSP or Vita then I think it’s so very much worth going back to these earlier games if you jumped on the Persona train with the latest entry. Each offers a similarly engaging story, characters and gameplay while going in different directions with tone and style, and each is very much worth your time if you were at all a fan of Persona 5.”
