Persona 3 Reload PS5 PS4

Suggestions that Persona 3 Reload will be treated to a wave of DLC, including the FES version's post-game content The Answer, have gained more weight after references to them were spotted in a recent datamine. Delving into the PC files revealed mentions of a "P3R Expansion Pass" that would grant access to six portions of DLC, one of which is "Episode Aigis / The Answer".

The other five pieces that have been datamined are an "Exploration Item Set", "EX GM Sets" from Persona 4 Golden and Persona 5 Royal, the "Velvet Room Costume Set", and the "Episode Aigis BGM Set". While this offers significantly more evidence to the possibility of The Answer being prepared as Persona 3 Reload DLC, it's important to note this does not always mean the content will actually arrive. A datamine of Shin Megami Tensei V picked up references to PS4, but the port has never materialised. Still, this is welcome news for fans looking for more Persona 3 Reload.

The Answer was a new piece of content released in the PS2's FES version, and predominantly focused on combat rather than relationships and social links. It's one of a few pieces of missing content in Persona 3 Reload alongside the female main character. The omissions were noted in our PS5 review, where we said: "Reload is easily the best version of Persona 3 — but it's still difficult to call it definitive. That's because the additional parts of enhanced re-release Persona 3 FES and PSP port Persona 3 Portable aren't included — and so we're still stuck with four separate incarnations of what is essentially the same game."

Atlus has gone on record stating there won't be a re-release of Persona 3 Reload in the same vein as a Persona 5 Royal, so DLC is the only hope fans have of The Answer releasing for PS5, PS4. Does this datamine give you confidence it will? Let us know in the comments below.
