Persona 3 Reload is a remake of the classic PlayStation 2 JRPG, Persona 3. The game takes place in the fictional Japanese city of Iwatodai, where a hidden hour known as the Dark Hour exists between midnight and 1:00 AM. During this time, shadows, monstrous creatures born from humanity’s dark subconscious, roam free and prey on humans.

You play as the protagonist, a transfer student who awakens to his Persona, Orpheus, and joins the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad (SEES), a group of students who fight shadows during the Dark Hour.

As you battle shadows and investigate the mysteries of the Dark Hour, you must also navigate your social life, attending school, building relationships with your fellow SEES members, and managing your time wisely.
