Persona 3 is a turn-based RPG that sees players controlling a transfer student in the Japanese city of Iwatodai, using summoned beings known as Personas to fight. They become involved in a series of incidents surrounding a temporary anomaly called the Dark Hour that exists between one day and the next. The Dark Hour includes the appearance of a tower known as Tartarus, and players join the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad tasked with investigating it. Reload will include new features such as revamped graphics and UI, a new English voice cast, and a rework of its Tartarus dungeon, though it will not include the female protagonist added in the previous Persona 3 Portable remake.
