Persona 3 Reload Won’t Have The Answer or FeMC, Has Some FES Content

In an interview with Famitsu, the development team behind Persona 3 Reload confirmed that the remake will focus on the base version of the game title. This means that there will be no content like the feMC from Persona 3 Portable, and we won’t see The Answer from FES in the Reload remake. However, there will be some elements of FES in the main story. [Thanks, Famitsu!]

The main focus of the remake is to let players experience Persona 3 with Persona 5-like graphics and gameplay. So there are very few changes to the story or the characterization. However, there will be new side stories focusing on the SEES members. These will be separate from Social Links and will focus more on what certain characters were doing in scenes where you couldn’t see them.

Ryouta Niizuma, who is the producer for the game, made it clear that the Persona 3 Reload will not be a remake of FES or Portable. Here is a translation of what he said in the interview:

Persona 3 Reload is a project that prioritized remaking the original Persona 3 for modern consoles. So it doesn’t contain the epilogue from FES or the female protagonist from Portable. However, that doesn’t mean that the new additions to the main story that was added in FES won’t be in Reload.”

FES added new Personas, dorm videos, walks with Koromaru, a new Chidori event, and the Aeon Arcana Social Link. That’s Aigis’s Social Link. We will have to wait for more information from Atlus to see what FES content will be retained in Reload.

Persona 3 Reload will come out on the Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Windows PC in early 2024. Other platforms haven’t been confirmed yet.
