The novelty of balancing your normal day-to-day life with the duties bestowed upon you to take down the shadows still remains intact. After all, this concept was first introduced in the original Persona 3.

So, get ready to battle through the monsters lurking in the dark hour, a mysterious 25th hour in the day where time stops, humans turn into coffins, and your own school transforms into a deranged 250-floor tower.

Persona 3 Reload lets you pick from over 150 different Personas throughout your entire journey. But if you’re new to the Persona series, then it might be a little daunting to figure out which personas are best and the strongest in the late-game. Fortunately, you won’t have to look any further!
