, Persona series general producer Kazuhisa Wada said plans to remake the Episode Aegis expansion have been in consideration since "the first drafts" of Persona 3 Reload but didn't start proper until the game was announced.

This comes despite Wada promising in February 2024 that Atlus is "not considering a revision like with

, which involved significant changes and additions to the original title." Wada added that "fans can rest assured knowing that Persona 3 Reload offers a complete experience."


Persona 3 Reload isn't getting one of these revised editions exactly, but it is getting a $34.99 expansion pass which includes background music from Persona 5 and Persona 4, new costumes, and the aforementioned Episode Aegis expansion.

Wada said the initial ideas for remaking Episode Aegis — which was a 30 hour epilogue added to Persona 3 through an expanded edition called FES — were scrapped "due to various circumstances."

"Even so, deep down, I couldn’t just give up on it, so even while developing the main story I kept searching for ways to make it happen," he continued. "After finally announcing Persona 3 Reload to the world, we received a lot of feedback from fans asking about the follow-up story. It was reassuring for us to share the same feelings, and having that support gave us the push to make it happen. I am truly grateful."


It's unclear exactly when development on the Episode Aegis remake began, though it was certainly before the February 2024 "complete experience" reassurance.
