Highlights
Persona is one of the most popular franchises, and it seems that Atlus is planning to revisit the old titles.
Reputable insider, Midori, has revealed that Atlus is working Persona 1 and 2 remakes. However, there's no official release date.

It’s a known fact that the Persona franchise has managed to gather a loyal fanbase with its unique characters and exciting stories. Persona games have been around since the late 90s, so it’s been kind of difficult for many new fans to dig into the old titles. With Atlus launching a Persona 3 Remake and gearing up for a Persona 4 remake, players are hoping that the developers will also take a look at other titles. However, new rumors suggest that Atlus is already working on Persona 1 and 2 remakes. Let’s take a look at everything we know.

Insider Claims Atlus Is Already Working on Persona 1 and 2 Remakes

In a recent post on X, reputable insider Midori says that Persona 1 and Persona 2 are soon going to get remakes. The leaker went on to clarify in a follow-up post that the brand-new versions of the games might not be completely new remakes, but they’ll be launched in an “updated” form. Midori has been accurate previously when it comes to Sega and Atlus titles, so this information is actually credible. 

The community is excited to see exactly how Atlus will present the remakes of the first two games, as they’re quite different from the other titles in the franchise. Persona 2 is a part of duology, and it’s not clear if Atlus will remake both the parts or a single game will get the remake treatment. 

Players are eagerly speculating if Atlus would make changes to the game’s design, and deliver a Persona 5 treatment, just like what we saw with Persona 3 Reload. It’s surely going to be interesting to see if the developers will completely revamp the characters, with new designs, and other aspects. It’s likely that the game’s characters will receive new voices, which means the development can take quite some time.

However, taking these rumors and speculations with a grain of salt is crucial, as Atlus hasn’t officially confirmed anything about the remakes. If they’re working on remaking the games, it’ll take quite some time before release. Recent rumors also suggest that Atlus is already working on developing Persona 6, which might see a release on Switch 2 as well. That’s not all; the studio is also working on the highly anticipated Persona 5: The Phantom X and Metaphor: ReFantazio.
