Celebration for jRPG Fans: Final Fantasy IX and Persona 3 Remakes Leaked [Update: Persona 3 Confirmed]

Fans of Persona 3 and Final Fantasy IX may have reason to rejoice. According to unconfirmed information, the developers of both brands are working on remakes of these games.

Persona 3 will indeed get a remake - it is subtitled Reloaded and will be released in early 2024 for PC, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S. The game will go straight to Game Pass. You can find the trailer, among other things, here.

According to leaks, two remakes are coming, which would certainly please jRPG fans. These include a refresh of Final Fantasy IX from Square Enix, as well as a title from Atlus - the Persona 3. Of course, this news should be approached with a pinch of salt, at least for now.

Square Enix is currently said to be working on a remake of Final Fantasy IX

Rumors of a refresh of Final Fantasy IX have been circulating for some time - we first heard about such a project almost two years ago, when the famous leak from the GeForce Now database took place. Now, in turn, we are receiving confirmations.

Most recently Gematsu editors reported, that according to their sources Square Enix is currently working on a full-fledged remake of Final Fantasy IX. The studio itself has not officially announced a refresh of the game, but if the leak is true, we may receive new information from the brand's developers in the near future.

It is worth mentioning in passing that Gematsu recently wrote about a fan refresh of the title. Professional developers have prepared a non-playable version of Final Fantasy IX, known as Memoria Project and powered by Unreal Engine 5. The effects of their work can be seen in the extensive footage that was recently shared on YouTube.

For the first time Final Fantasy IX was released to gamers in 2000 for the original PlayStation.
