Today Atlus shared plenty of new assets and details about the upcoming Persona 3 remake aptly titled Persona 3 Reload.
We start with taking a look at the redesigned combat uniforms coming with the reload, including their artwork. These are worn by the party members when they explore Tartarus.
Next is social stats, that Persona veterans will be familiar with. As you play, you'll need to match certain standards in Courage, Charm, or Academics.
Of course, you can improve your stats by studying, performing part-time jobs, and more.
Insufficient stats may block you from using certain facilities or developing social links beyond a certain point, at least until you reach the required level.
The Dorm Life feature lets you enjoy school life with your friends. You can cook, study for tests, read books, watch movies, tend a vegetable garden, and much more.
Not only this raises social stats, but it also helps the party member unlock passive skills named Combat Characteristics.
On top of that, bonds between the hero and the other characters will grow stronger, triggering new interactions.
The computer in the lounge can be used to study or gather information. Not only this raises social skills, but it also teaches useful skills.
We also get to see more schoolmates who aren't part of the playable party. Yet, you can still develop social links with them, and doing so will unlock special scenes.
Interacting with them will also improve your Persona abilities. Not only do they have new illustrations for the remake, but their scenes now have full voice overs.
