• New social events with Metis and unique Fusion Spells are coming in the Persona 3 Reload DLC.
  • The DLC is a playable epilogue based on The Answer from Persona 3 FES.

Persona 3 Reload‘s developers have teased what to expect of the additional content in the upcoming Episode Aigis: The Answer DLC, including new songs, Fusion Spell Theurgies, and even socialization events. Shortly after Persona 3 Reload launched this past February 2, Atlus revealed a post-launch DLC plan, with the Expansion Pass adding three waves of content.

While the first two waves are cosmetic and music DLC, the third content wave of Persona 3 Reload‘s Expansion Pass contains additional story content based on The Answer, a playable epilogue from Persona 3 FES. The Episode Aigis: The Answer DLC takes place after the events of Reload‘s ending, where Aigis inherits the protagonist’s Wild Card ability, meets a mysterious Anti Shadow Weapon named Metis, and S.E.E.S. gets trapped in a time loop. The producer and director of Reload, Kazuhisa Wada and Yu Hashizume respectively, recently discussed some of the additions and changes made to Reload‘s iteration of The Answer.


Rumor: Persona 6 Will Launch on Switch Successor

A well-known and reliable leaker confirms that Persona 6 will likely launch on the rumored Nintendo Switch successor console.

In the latest issue of Persona Magazine (translated and archived courtesy of Persona Central), Hashizume and Wada state that the story and ending of The Answer DLC will be the same as the original. However, since the player can gain gameplay trait benefits in the base game through Persona 3 Reload‘s Dorm Hangouts, the DLC will implement something similar. Hashizume also notes the developers added new events centered around Metis, addressing most complaints that fans had about the lack of socialization of the original release. Both Hashizume and Wada expressed excitement about Metis’ inclusion, as this is the first time that she has appeared since the original Persona 3 FES.

Persona 3 Reload – Episode Aigis: The Answer DLC Content

  • New Socialization Events for Metis, Two Types of Theurgy
  • New Fusion Spell Theurgies for Aigis
  • Persona Compendium Access
  • Same Story as FES‘ The Answer
  • Two New Songs, New Opening With New Animation
  • Estimated 20 Hour Playtime

Hashizume clarifies that Metis will play like the other party members of Persona 3 Reload, meaning she’ll have two traits and two Theurgies to unlock, with the traits being tied to the new social events in the DLC. While Metis inherits Aigis’ Orgia Mode Theurgy, Aigis will get access to the protagonist’s Fusion Spells, something that she couldn’t do in FES, with the DLC adding some unique Fusion Spells for Aigis. Players will also get access to the Persona Compendium, making Fusion easier when compared to FES‘ version of The Answer.

The director also revealed the playtime of The Answer DLC, clocking in at around 20 hours as opposed to 30 in the original, with the time being cut down due to the aforementioned QOL features for Persona Fusion and battles. Hashizume also notes that players won’t need to beat Reload in order to play The Answer, as the levels of the party are uniform, but they are considering some sort of save transfer feature. Lastly, there will be two new songs in the DLC, which include a newly animated opening and song, along with a new advantage battle song.
