The rumoured remake of PS2 classic Persona 3 will be announced next month according to one of the original sources of the claims. ResetEra user I'm A Hero Too said a certain press conference in June will be "Evoke-itive", referring to the Evoker, a gun in the JRPG that allows Personas to be summoned.
Which livestream do you need to tune in to for the live announcement? The Xbox Games Showcase on Sunday, 11th June 2023. While it's highly unlikely the Persona 3 remake will be exclusive to Xbox Series X|S, the claim does suggest Microsoft has the marketing rights again after revealing the recent Persona 3 Portable and Persona 4 Golden console ports. A 48-hour embargo was placed on confirmation of the PS4 versions, so if the same happens again this year, we suggest waiting for further information.
While original speculation surrounding the Persona 3 remake could have been chalked up as gaming forum hearsay, the claims became a lot more legitimate when what appeared to be footage of Persona 3 running at a higher resolution with tweaks to gameplay appeared online. Gematsu then backed up the rumours: "While we cannot verify the footage itself, Gematsu understands that a Persona 3 remake has been in development at Atlus for several years."
