Persona 3 Reload And Persona 5 Tactica Leaked, Launching On Xbox Game Pass
Two Persona games, the remake of Persona 3 and a Persona 5 strategy game, have leaked ahead of the Xbox Games Showcase.
Two new Persona games, Persona 3 Reload and Persona 5 Tactica have leaked online thanks to Atlus posting trailers for both games early. Persona 3 Reload launches in early 2024 on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows, while Persona 5 Tactica releases November 17 on the same platforms. Both trailers indicate that the games will be available via Xbox Game Pass at launch.
First up is Persona 3 Reload, which is a remake of Persona 3. There have been multiple versions of Persona 3 over the years, with each version including and excluding various features. It's unclear from the trailer if Persona 3 Reload will include everything from the different versions, or if some aspects will be cut. The trailer notably only shows the male version of the protagonist, which could imply the female version won't be included in this remake. The female version has previously only been included in Persona 3 Portable.
The remake uses a third-person perspective and includes direct exploration of the main city. This version of Persona 3 looks much closer to Persona 5 in its menus and social scenes. The combat looks much closer to the original version of Persona 3, with the party members surrounding the enemy shadows in a 3D space.

The second trailer is for Persona 5 Tactica, another spin-off of the wildly popular Persona 5. This spin-off features a much more cartoonish look, with the characters looking like Chibi versions of themselves. The game is a strategy RPG, with gameplay similar to Fire Emblem. The trailer also features a new purple-haired girl fighting alongside the original cast of Persona 5.

Both trailers are likely set to premiere officially during the Xbox Games Showcase on Sunday June 11, based on the Xbox branding that appears in both trailers. While these games might not be exclusive to Xbox consoles and PC, no other platforms appear in the trailers.
