Hot on the heels of the release of Persona 3 Reload, a reputable leaker has hinted that Atlus is working on remakes of three more Persona titles. Over recent years, Atlus has been actively making the Persona franchise more accessible by remaking Persona 3 and porting games like Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal to various platforms. Now, it seems Atlus intends to continue this trend, particularly focusing on the older entries in the series.
Shared by user @MbKKssTBhz5 on X, known for accurate scoops regarding Atlus and Sega, three additional Persona remakes are reportedly in development at Atlus. These remakes are linked to the original Persona, Persona 2, and Persona 4. While specifics about the scope of these remakes were not disclosed, it was clarified that they would not follow the same format as Persona 3 Reload. Additionally, it was mentioned that another game from Atlus’ PlayStation 2 era is also receiving a remaster.
Meanwhile, another insider on ResetEra, user Head on the Block, provided further details about these potential Persona remakes. According to them, the Persona 2 remake is more of a remaster and would include both Persona 2: Eternal Punishment and Persona 2: Innocent Sin, marking the first time both games are bundled together. This Persona 2 remaster/remake is expected to release either before or after Persona 6. As for Persona 4, its remake is reportedly in early stages and is still far from completion.
It seems logical for Atlus to continue remaking older Persona games, especially considering the positive reception of Persona 3 Reload. Moreover, the Persona franchise has gained immense popularity since Persona 5’s release, suggesting there are many fans worldwide who have yet to experience titles like Persona and Persona 2. Therefore, bringing back these games for new audiences appears to be a sensible move for Atlus.
