- According to rumors, Persona 3 Reload will have post-launch DLC, including an epilogue called The Answer from Persona 3 FES.
- The DLC will follow a similar business model to Sega’s other games, such as Lost Judgment, but will not have the same content.
- Fans should not expect a DLC featuring the female protagonist from Persona 3 Portable, as it is reportedly not included in Atlus’ current DLC plans.
A notable Persona 3 Reload leaker has stated that Atlus has post-launch DLC plans for the game, with one DLC being based on The Answer epilogue from Persona 3 FES. While the upcoming Persona 3 Reload is focused on recreating the original experience, the developers have added some elements of the previous re-releases of Persona 3 into the remake. Despite Reload‘s additions and quality-of-life improvements, it still drew ire from fans over the fact that it wouldn’t include everything the past re-releases had, with some people feeling that the omissions made the remake less complete.
The developers previously said Reload would not include some of the exclusive content from past Persona 3 re-releases, such as The Answer from Persona 3 FES, a playable epilogue that features Aigis as the main character. After the events of Persona 3, she gains access to the power of the Wild Card and has to fight a brand-new threat. While this epilogue won’t be available at launch, a notable Persona leaker has stated that Atlus will be incorporating this content as post-launch DLC for Reload.
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.
MbKKssTBhz5, or Midori, is a very prominent leaker of Atlus’ games, having leaked the existence of Persona 3 Reload before its official reveal, along with other Sega-produced projects, meaning she has a pretty reliable track record. Her latest tweet says that Persona 3 Reload will be getting DLC based on The Answer epilogue from Persona 3 FES, with more information being provided at a later date. Midori also mentions that multiple DLC packs are planned to expand Persona 3 Reload‘s longevity and will be released within the 2025 fiscal year.
Possible Persona 3 Reload Post-Launch DLC Plans
- The Answer epilogue from Persona 3 FES
- More costumes and songs
- Planned for 2025 fiscal year
Midori says Atlus’ current DLC plan is modeled after other Sega titles, using Lost Judgment‘s DLC as an example. Midori also clarifies that while Persona 3 Reload‘s DLC will be following the same business model, it doesn’t mean Reload will have the same kind of content as Lost Judgment. Midori also says Atlus will be adding cosmetic-based content post-launch, which includes new costumes and songs.
Midori also has some bad news for fans who were hoping for a female protagonist route in Persona 3 Reload, stating that Atlus’ current DLC plans don’t include the female protagonist from Persona 3 Portable. While many fans were happy to hear their prediction of The Answer being added as Reload DLC ended up being correct, many expressed disappointment over Atlus possibly not making the female protagonist DLC. While Midori has proven to have a reliable track record so far, this is still a rumor right now. Fans should wait for more official information from Atlus before setting their expectations too high.
