During the Xbox presentation at Tokyo Game Show 2023, Atlus gave fans a quick glimpse at two of their most anticipated titles. One of them was Persona 5 Tactica, a game that was announced earlier this year and combines the quirky ideas of the Persona series of games with tactical role-playing titles.

The battles are grid-based, and the combat system is almost completely overhauled. Like any other spin-off in the series, such as Persona Q and Dancing All Night, this game also features its own narrative, which would be very interesting to see.

Persona 3 Reload, on the other hand, is a different beat of its own kind; the game is a complete remake of the original Persona 3 in Unreal Engine 4. This game takes inspiration from later Persona games, especially Persona 5. It turns the grim game that was originally Persona 3 into a very vibrant new title.

In addition to these changes, the game also brings a bunch of new gameplay mechanics to the table. One such mechanic is a bunch of techniques that unlock once players fill a gauge. They presented one such move called Theurgy in the showcase itself, and it looks pretty impressive. It looks like the developers have really given this game a lot of time and thought.
