- A recent leak suggests that Persona 3 Reload will have post-launch DLC, including The Answer epilogue from Persona 3 FES, as well as cosmetics and music.
- The leak was discovered through data mining and revealed that the DLC will include new costumes, items, background music sets from Persona 4 Golden and Persona 5 Royal, and a Velvet Room costume set.
- Modders have confirmed that some of these DLC tracks already exist in the Steam version of Persona 3 Reload.
Following the launch of Persona 3 Reload, a recent leak has provided evidence of Atlus’ potential post-launch DLC plans, supporting a claim made by a notable leaker. Persona 3 Reload launched on February 2 to critical acclaim. Reload‘s focus on remaking the original game ended up skipping over some elements exclusive to previous Persona 3 re-releases, such as The Answer epilogue from Persona 3 FES.
Despite its omission from Reload, recent rumors suggest that this content will be incorporated as Persona 3 Reload‘s post-launch DLC. This claim was first made by MbKKssTBhz5, or Midori, a notable leaker of Atlus’ games with a reliable track record. She made the claim that The Answer would be added as DLC, with other cosmetics and music being added after launch as well. Shortly after Persona 3 Reload‘s release, modders found evidence that suggests these claims aren’t unfounded.
Persona 3 Reload Won’t Have Persona 5 Royal-Style Re-Release
Atlus states it currently has no plans to develop a Persona 5 Royal-styled updated re-release for the upcoming Persona 3 Reload.
The leak was posted by ruinedstego on Twitter, who found this information through data mining Persona 3 Reload. The data mine revealed that six new pieces of DLC are being planned to be released in the “P3R Expansion Pass.” This will give players a set of items, new costumes, music, and The Answer epilogue from Persona 3 FES. The extra songs originate from Persona 4 Golden and Persona 5 Royal, with a separate pack that includes remixes of the Velvet Room’s theme. There is also a Velvet Room costume set, which will likely give players the option to dress their party members in the same outfits as the Velvet Room attendants.

Modders were able to confirm that some of these DLC tracks already exist in the Steam version of Persona 3 Reload. Some were even able to have these tracks play while exploring the Tartarus dungeon by forcing Reload to load tracks like “I believe” from Persona 5 Royal or “Backside of the TV” from Persona 4 Golden, stating that the code for the two related DLCs already exists internally. Other versions, like the Xbox Game Pass PC version, don’t have these tracks in the code.
A lot of what has been found in this data mine matches up with what Midori has previously stated. According to Midori, Atlus plans on releasing this DLC during the 2025 fiscal year. Midori also stated that fans shouldn’t expect a DLC based on the Persona 3 Portable female protagonist’s story, which is seemingly supported by this data mine. Despite this mountain of evidence, fans should still wait until Atlus releases more official information regarding post-launch DLC for Persona 3 Reload.
Persona 3 Reload
Persona 3 Reload is a remake of Atlus’ beloved 2006 JRPG. Featuring updated visuals and quality-of-life improvements, Reload brings Persona 3 to the modern age in style.
Blending social sim sections with dungeon crawling, monster catching, and turn-based combat, Persona 3 Reload finds a group of high school students investigating the Dark Hour, a short period that exists between days.
