The Answer, also known as Episode Aegis in the Japanese version, is an epilogue of Persona 3, which continues from the aftermath of Persona 3 FES’s main story, The Journey. The Answer follows Aigis from the main game and a new party member who joins her on a quest involving events after the main story in Persona 3.

Future DLC Might Include ‘The Answer’ For P3R

In an interview with Famitsu, Atlus said that the company was focused on remaking the base version of Persona 3. However, the team confirmed that there will be some elements of FES in the main story. The developers did not reveal anything about the feMC from Persona 3 Portable and The Answer from FES coming to Reload.

Notable leaker Midori, also known as MbKKssTBhz5 on Twitter, said Persona 3 Reload would receive The Answer as DLC “within the fiscal year”.

However, the leaker did not reveal whether the DLC is coming in FY 2024 or 2025. Midori previously leaked Persona 3 Reload, which was in development before its official reveal.

Persona 3 Reload will receive DLC containing The Answer in the future. Please wait for more information at a later date.

We are planning to release downloadable content (DLC) that will make the gameplay of Persona 3 Reload even more enjoyable. Episode Aigis will also be included.
