Who knows if it will stick to this, but Atlus currently has zero intentions to release a Royal or Golden-type version of Persona 3 Reload.
Persona 3 Reload is finally here, and according to our own Alex, it’s a very good game! However, one thing that is sticking as a point of frustration for some fans, is that it’s technically just a remake of the very original Persona 3. You see, for those that don’t know, following the original Persona 3, there were two other re-releases, Persona 3 FES again on the PS2, and Persona 3 Portable, unsurprisingly on the PSP, given the name. Both of these included extra content, and Portable even featured a female main character you could play as, but none of this is present in Reload, leading some fans to suspect that Reload will eventually get a re-release itself, much like Persona 4 and Persona 5.
In a new interview, however, Persona Team production manager Kazuhisa Wada shared that this wouldn’t be the case. Speaking to Gamerwk (translated by Persona Central), Wada said that “currently, we are not considering a revision like with Persona 5 to Persona 5 Royal, which involved significant changes and additions to the original title. So, fans can rest assured knowing that Persona 3 Reload offers a complete experience. Through this game, we have made great efforts to ensure that fans worldwide, including Southeast Asia, can access it simultaneously. Therefore, we sincerely hope that fans worldwide can enjoy Persona 3 Reload and have fun.”
