Sega and Atlus could have a major surprise for all Persona fans at the Xbox Games Showcase next month . Beloved Japanese turn-based RPG Persona 3 could be getting a full-fledged remake, according to the latest rumours.
Publisher Sega and developer Atlus apparently plan to announce Persona 3 Remake at the Xbox Games Showcase, which officially airs next month, June 11, 2023. The information comes from a ResetEra insider who teased the announcement, saying that everyone who loves Persona should tune in since the showcase will be "Evoke-itive". Persona fans will probably recognise the hint.
Since this is far from an official confirmation, take the information with a grain of salt, just like any other rumour or leak. The good news is that we won't have to wait for too long to see if Persona 3 Remake is indeed real, since the showcase is just around the corner.
Persona 3 was originally released way back in 2006 for PlayStation 2. Since then, the game got re-released a couple of times, adding more story content and improving the visuals. The latest release came earlier this year when Persona 3 Portable was released for PlayStation 4 , Xbox One , Xbox Series X|S , PC and Nintendo Switch .
Persona 3's story revolves around a group of high school students who form a group named SEES, to investigate a mysterious time period called Dark Hour. During their adventure, the students will battle various enemies who feed on the minds of humans and as they fight these creatures, the students can summon their inner self Persona, hence the name.
Given that this alleged Persona 3 Remake is set to be announced at the Xbox Showcase, chances are that Xbox will have the marketing rights for this one, which is certainly a great move for Microsoft who are trying hard to increase their presence in Japan when it comes to gaming.
Persona 3 Remake will probably launch across all platforms so don't expect any type of exclusivity for the Xbox ecosystem.
