New tech.

As you’d expect from a remake of a classic game, developer Atlus has woven in new features to the Persona 3 Reload experience. Even though the game is single-player, there are now multiplayer elements woven in as well. By enabling network features, players unlock a suite of options that bridge their game with a global community of players. Here’s a breakdown of what they all mean and do.

All Persona 3 Reload Network Features & What They Do

Review and Compare Progress

By simply pressing the touchpad on a PlayStation controller (or its equivalent on other platforms), you can peek into the journeys of other players around the world. This functionality allows you to compare your progress, see where others are in the story, and gauge how your gameplay stacks up. It’s a nice way to feel connected to a larger community, sharing in the trials of the game’s various challenges.

Gameplay Tips

By pressing the touchpad you can access community knowledge, offering tips and recommended actions to help you overcome any hurdles. This feature is invaluable, especially considering the time-sensitive nature of many in-game events. That all being said, you should stick to We Game Daily for more comprehensive tips, such as our list of class quiz answers (shameless plug, sorry!).

Online Saves

Persona 3 Reload allows you to save your progress online. While this doesn’t enable save data transfers across different consoles, it offers flexibility within the same console family. You can retrieve your game data via your PSN account, facilitating seamless transitions between current and previous generation consoles within the same ecosystem (e.g., PS4 to PS5).

It’s worth noting that while the online save feature enhances accessibility, it isn’t cross-platform. Transferring save data between a PlayStation and Xbox, for instance, is not supported.

That wraps up our breakdown of all the network features in Persona 3 Reload. While there aren’t a huge number they definitely have added some handy options that help to modernize the experience a little and make it more accessible to new players.
