Atlus has shared a new trailer for Persona 3 Reload. The video presents the main protagonist of the upcoming RPG, who’s called “Hero” in the trailer and whose name can be chosen by the player.
Persona 3 Reload is the upcoming remake of classic Atlus turn-based RPG Persona 3 (PS2). It’ll be available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 on February 2, 2024.
The game will completely revamp the visuals using Unreal 4 as its engine and it will not include content from the later rereleases such as Persona 3 FES or Persona 3 Portable.
Persona 3 tells the story of young people who join a group called S.E.E.S. to fight the mysterious force of the Dark Hour. In between two days, a 13th hour appears, bringing with it harmful creatures called Shadows.
The protagonist is a young man who moved back to Iwatodai to study at Gekkoukan High. Not long after that, he gets to see the Dark Hour. This encounter leads him to join S.E.E.S., learning about the threat his dormmates have faced so far.
In the remake, Aleks Le voices the nameable protagonist.
