The P3 Reload release date will bring this highly-anticipated remake to players on PS5 and Xbox, as well as Game Pass subscribers, very soon.

Persona 3 Reload Release Date: The character can be seen

When is the Persona 3 Reload release date? Atlus’ long-awaited remake and ‘ultimate version’ of Persona 3 is almost here, but when exactly can fans of the series (and RPGs in general) jump in?

P3 Reload sees the iconic 2006 game reimagined and brought up standards befitting the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S consoles. It’s also going to be a day-one addition to the ever-growing library of Xbox Game Pass games. Pre-release reviews are touting it as one of the best RPGs of the year, and here’s when you’ll be able to play it.

Persona 3 Reload release date

The Persona 3 Reload release date is set for Friday, February 2, 2024 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One. It’ll also hit Xbox Game Pass on the same date as a day-one addition.

This was announced at the end of its Gamescom 2023 trailer, which turned its vague ‘early 2024’ window into a solid P3 Reload release date.

Persona 3 Reload gameplay

The Persona 3 Reload gameplay shown in the Gamescom trailer shows how the original P3’s mechanics have been reimagined and elevated in the Persona 5 engine. We get to see all the staples of the series, with classrooms, combat, the iconic Persona 3 music, and more. Overall, the game is actually looking really stylish, especially with the wonderful color palate and flashes that make the series so iconic.

It also introduces us to the S.E.E.S. (Specialised Extracurricular Execution Squad) and the cast of characters you will meet and interact with.

However, Atlus confirmed that the Persona 3 Portable or FES content, including the female protagonist, will not be in Reload. This was confirmed in an interview with IGN.

Persona 3 Reload characters

Persona 3 Reload tells the story of Mokoto Yuki, and his friends who band together and cope with death, accepting it and the role it plays in the world.

The cast of Persona 3 Reload characters are:

  • Mitsuru Kirijo
  • Junpei Iori
  • Yukari Takeba
  • Akihiko Sanada
  • Aigis
  • Fuuka Yamagishi
  • Shinjiro Aragaki
  • Ken Amada

In High School, the group S.E.E.S. investigates the Dark Hour, a mysterious time period between one day and the next that is unknown to most individuals. During the Dark Hour, the group investigates a tower called ‘Tartarus’, which contains shadows and creatures that feed off human minds. In fights, the group summons Persona to take on the shadows and save humanity. Here you can check out all the Persona 3 Reload voice actors that are bringing life to the characters.

That covers the Persona 3 Reload release date and what you can expect from the game. Atlus is set to smash it out the park with this remake, and the fact there’s a Persona 3 Reload Game Pass launch on day one just makes things even better. We think its absolutely going to be one of the best Xbox Game Pass games added to the service in 2024.
