Persona 5 Includes Unused Map Data For Iconic Persona 3 Location

Following the huge success of Persona 4 and this year’s Persona 5, many are wondering if Atlus will ever remake Persona 3 for modern consoles. The PlayStation 2 RPG already got a reimagining with Persona 3 Portable, which allowed players to choose the gender of the main character, altering Social Link and some story sequences, but there’s the chance that Atlus may be planning something big for the future.

Dedicated Persona fan Mystic recently discovered unused map data for Persona 3 Iwatodau Dorm, which is the base of operation for the party. The map is clearly incomplete, but it’s definitely interesting that something like this is in Persona 5.

Mystic speculates that this map data might be used for either Persona 3 Dancing Moon Light, the rhythm game launching next year, or a full Persona 3 remake. A recent Atlus survey asked fans if they would like a Persona 3 remake, so it’s probably not all that unlikely.

In his review of the game, Kai noted how the latest entry in the series surpassed its predecessor in every way.

Surpassing its predecessors in every way, Persona 5 redefines the Japanese RPG with a stylish band of rogues that should please any fan of the genre.

Persona 5 is now out on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 in all regions.
