Persona 3 Remake Is Trending on Twitter, But It's Not a Real Game

There’s currently a social media campaign to get Persona 3 Remake trending on Twitter. Unfortunately, just because it’s big on Twitter doesn’t mean a Persona 3 Remake is real. Today, fans of Atlus’ 2006 PlayStation 2 RPG Persona 3 are tweeting their wishes for a modern remake using the hashtag #Persona3Remake. One of the most popular viral tweets from this movement is from a fan account called Official AtIus West, which includes an intentional misspelling of the Official Atlus West Twitter account which could fool the quick onlooker. The social media campaign looks to be a deliberate attempt by Persona 3 fans to raise awareness for their desire for a remake, perhaps hoping to grab Atlus’ attention in the process. The campaign may have begun today because of the date, January 31, which is an important date in Persona 3. [ignvideo url=""] Persona 3 did receive an enhanced port in 2009 for the PSP. Since it was on a handheld, Persona 3 Portable (or P3P) wasn’t so much of a graphical upgrade as it was a feature upgrade. P3P added new gameplay mechanics from Persona 4, added new storylines, difficulty levels, character designs, and even the option to play as a female protagonist. Persona 3 also received several spinoffs, including a dungeon-crawler RPG called Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth and Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight, a rhythm game. There have also been several anime film adaptations of Persona 3.

Atlus’ Persona team is currently working on Persona 5: The Royal an expanded version of the 2016 (2017 in North America) RPG. Like P3P, Persona 5: The Royal will include new gameplay mechanics, storylines, and characters. Read IGN’s Persona 5 review here and check out our Persona 5 wiki for walkthroughs, tips and more.
