Persona 3 Reload PS5 PS4 PlayStation

Persona 3 Reload launched on PS5 and PS4 on Friday, introducing a new generation to the Dark Hour and giving veterans the best way yet to relive the adventure. And while Atlus predictably had a swathe of day-one DLC ready to go, the publisher has stated fans can feel confident this is the complete package, and no expanded edition ala Persona 4: Golden or Persona 5 Royal are planned.

Word comes to us by way of Indonesian outlet GamerWK, translated by Persona Central, with Persona Team production manager Kazuhisa Wada insisting that fans can buy Reload with a clear conscience: "Currently, we are not considering a revision like with Persona 5 to Persona 5 Royal, which involved significant changes and additions to the original title. Fans can rest assured knowing that Persona 3 Reload offers a complete experience."

Atlus has acquired something of a negative reputation as far as DLC is concerned, spurred on, no doubt, by parent company SEGA's constant pursuit of the bottom dollar. Infamously, Atlus refused to provide a free upgrade path for Persona 5 players on PS4 when the Royal Edition rolled around, demanding players pay full price to experience its expanded offerings, in a move which we called out as an insult to fans and the game itself.

Do you take Atlus at face value, that Persona 3 Reload is a complete package (excepting, of course, the rumoured epilogue The Answer)? Learn to trust again in the comments section below.
