It seems like the rumour mill is heating up around two major games that are allegedly in development at Sega studios. A Persona 3 remake and a new Jet Set Radio game have both been claimed to be in the works in the past, and new footage from both games seems to have recently emerged online. Check it out below, courtesy of @AVtoGAMEnoYAMI on Twitter.
The footage below allegedly originates from an internal reel that was showcased at Sega to exhibit in-development games in 2021, and also includes bits and pieces of footage from Sonic Frontiers, which is now out. Interestingly, the Sonic Frontiers footage shows the on-screen enemy using a different moveset from the one it has in the game.
What’s more, the potential domain of the alleged Persona 3 remake also seems to have been discovered- it’s p3re.jp, and it seems to be registered to the same domain provider as p5r.jp, which, of course, is the domain for Persona 5 Royal. Meanwhile, in its own reporting Gematsu has stated that though it cannot verify this recent leaked footage, it can corroborate that a Persona 3 remake has been in development at Atlus for “several years”.
As mentioned earlier, this isn’t the first we’ve heard of either of these two rumoured games. Leaks claimed earlier this year that Atlus was working on a full-fledged remake of Persona 3, and that it would be unveiled this Summer. Meanwhile, last year, it was reported that Sega was working on a “big budget” reboot of Jet Set Radio, potentially featuring live service elements.
UPDATE: Special thanks to anonymous user DM for this!! So it seems this was part of footage from SEGAs Japan’s Internal meeting held in 2021… The Japanese characters on top rights reads “Footage in development” pic.twitter.com/5sW13O1kyQ
