Footage of a possible Persona 3 remake and Jet Set Radio reboot has leaked

The footage shows some early Sonic Frontiers gameplay and something new from Jet Set Radio. It looks like some footage from a potential Persona 3 remake and Jet Set Radio reboot have leaked online. Right off the bat I should say that like with any leak or rumour, it’s always good to take things with a pinch of salt. But if a leak is to be believed, then some footage for a Persona 3 remake, and a new iteration of Jet Set Radio, has appeared courtesy of Twitter user akiaangelica. The user first shared footage of just Yukari from Persona…

Persona 3 Portable isn’t only a great JRPG, but a history lesson too

As someone whose only experience with the Persona series lay with Persona 5, I dove into Persona 3 Portable‘s PC re-release with one expectation: it will be old and therefore quite bad. Looking back, was I naïve? Yes. And was I wrong? I’m delighted to report that I was catastrophically wrong. From what I’ve played so far of Persona 3, I reckon it’s well worth a whirl if you’re a newcomer, or a Persona 5 fan who’s concerned that a game from 2009 won’t be all that good. Not only does it stand on its own as a fun high…

If you click on a link and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our editorial policy. Atlus continues its tradition of being outdated. Atlus has confirmed you’ll be able to stream Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden, but oddly you do have to include a spoiler warning. The thing about streaming games on Twitch and posting let’s plays on YouTube is that it sits in a bit of a grey area. It is technically showing off copyrighted material, but most developers know that it ultimately makes them more money though, as it’s essentially free promotion….

Persona 5 Royal finally hits PC this week and here’s why it’s still the JRPG king

I finished the original Persona 5 roughly four years ago, and it immediately earned my most coveted award: Edders Really Liked This A Lot, Perhaps More Than Anything Else. Since its updated and expanded Royal version dropped on PlayStation some years later, I’ve been afraid to make my return. You’d think I’d be itching to delve back into what’s essentially the definitive version of the Phantom Thieves’ adventure, and yet it’s precisely because it blew me away the first time that I’ve been reluctant to go back. Now? Now I feel silly. After playing the early portions of Persona 5:…

Persona 5 Royal is getting a co-operative card game next year

No, there’s still no word on Persona 6. While it’s not a new video game announcement, Atlus has announced that Persona 5 Royal is getting a card game adaptation. The new card game based on Persona 5 Royal very specifically is being designed by Emerson Matsuuchi, and is being published by Pandasauras Games, announced on the publisher’s site. According to Matsuuchi, “Players will take on the roles of their favorite Phantom Thieves and fight to change the world in this cooperative card-based strategy game,” though other than that no other details were provided on what the game will actually be…

Atlus knows how badly you want to see Persona 2 and Persona 3 remakes

The Atlus Survey 2022 Special Program livestream made it clear that the publisher understands what its fans want to see: old games on new platforms. How good would it be to see your mute Persona 3 protagonist shoot themself in the head with a special summoning gun, and have a fully powered-up Orpheus Telos appear in a blaze of unstoppable vengence? Maybe you’d prefer to see Persona 2: Innocent Sin or Persona 2: Eternal Punishment’s protagonists once again shunted into the spotlight instead – after all, other than a release on the PS Vita a few years back, many gamers…

Are you ready for a live-action Persona film or TV show? Sega reckons you might be

Obviously, we’ll only care about this if it’s an adaptation of Persona 3 – the best one. It’s been a great year for Atlus: per its most recent financial statement (for the period ending March 31), we learned that the sales of games released from April 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022 were above and beyond what the developer was expecting. Play 3 first. It’s worth it, I promise. So, with the Western releases of Shin Megami Tensei 3: Nocturne HD Remaster, the international release of Shin Megami Tensei V, and the worldwide remastered release of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax,…

As on Xbox, Switch versions of Persona 3 Portable (PSP) and Persona 4 Golden (Vita/PC) will later follow down the line, too.

Persona Central (thanks Destructoid) reported that, according to a statement released from Atlus via Japanese games mag Famitsu, Shin Megami Tensei 5 has sold over 800,000 copies since launch.
