Rumor: Persona 3 remake and new Jet Set Radio game footage appears onlineA Persona 3 remake is in development, Gematsu understands.
A video reel showcasing what appears to be work-in-progress footage of a Persona 3 remake and a new Jet Set Radio title surfaced online this morning.
The Persona 3 footage was first posted on April 4, but resurfaced today.
The reel is reportedly from 2021, showcasing in-development footage of the two alleged unannounced titles, as well as the currently available Sonic Frontiers.
While we cannot verify the footage itself, Gematsu understands that a Persona 3 remake has been in development at ATLUS for several years.
Twitter user @MbKKssTBhz5 also spotted a potential domain name for the title—p3re.jp—which is registered to the same domain provider as the Persona 5 Royal website (p5r.jp). The domain was registered on March 15, 2023.
The Jet Set Radio footage is in line with alleged artwork of a new Jet Set Radio reportedly leaked through a SEGA survey back in 2022. SEGAbiits also reports receiving the same image back in July 2022.
Back in April 2022, Bloomberg reported that SEGA was developing “big-budget” reboots of its Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi franchises.
As for the Sonic Frontiers footage, the “Caterpillar” enemy showcased in the footage has a different move set in the final game, but the footage matches with concept artwork from the Sonic Frontiers Digital Art Book.
Again, the authenticity of the footage itself is unclear, but Gematsu understands that a Persona 3 remake is planned at the very least.
Watch the footage below.
