Following the leak a few days ago, Persona 3 Reload and Persona 5 Tactica have officially been announced by Atlus during the Xbox Games Showcase.
Persona 3 Reload is a remake of the beloved Persona 3, coming in early 2024. Persona 5 Tactica is a brand new tactics JRPG coming on November 17, 2023.
Both games have been announced only for Windows, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One, with a day-one release on Game Pass as well.

If you're unfamiliar with Persona 3, it was originally released in 2006 for PlayStation 2. An enhanced version, Persona 3 FES, was then released also on PlayStation 2 in 2007. Persona 3 Portable then launched for PSP in 2009.
A remaster of Persona 3 Portable has recently been released for PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch and you can read our review. Our Andrew Stretch praised its "compelling story that interweaves global danger with the importance of building up friendships around you." While he admitted that it brought good enhancements, he also mentioned that it's not the "perfect" way to play the game. Perhaps Persona 3 Reload will be that perfect version the fans are waiting for.
