Persona 3 Remake Domain Registration Hints At Upcoming Announcement
A domain registration that appears to be for the Persona 3 remake suggests that the game may be close to getting an official announcement in the near future.
A mysterious domain for the web address “p3re.jp” was registered on March 15, 2023, suggesting that the rumored Persona 3 remake may be close to receiving an official announcement from Sega and Atlus. Details regarding the domain can be seen below.
It’s interesting to note that the domain provider for this mysterious site is the same as the one for the Japanese official site for Persona 5 Royal. This can be verified by viewing the WHOIS data for both websites.
Previously, the first ever gameplay footage for the rumored Persona 3 remake had allegedly been leaked ahead of its official reveal. The footage shows the game’s turn-based combat in action. It was allegedly taken from an internal meeting held at Sega Japan in 2021. The Japanese character at the top-right of the video reads “footage in development”.
The character in focus in the leaked video is none other than Yukari Takeba, a playable character from the original Persona 3. She is a student at Gekkoukan High School as well as a member of the Specialized Execution Squad. It’s worth highlighting that the Yukari character model seen in the above video hasn’t been lifted from some online source, and the visual effects look rather elaborate for this to not be the real deal.
Earlier, a Reset Era member, who had leaked the arrival of Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal on Xbox Game Pass last year as well as the release of Taiko no Tatsujin on Xbox months before an official announcement, stated that the Persona 3 remake will be similar to Persona 5, both in terms of visuals and aesthetics as well as Quality of Life additions. The leaked video appears to corroborate what they had said.
