Persona 3 Reload adds The Answer story expansion in September with Episode Aigis

Atlus and Sega have announced that Persona 3 Reload  will be adding The Answer, the post-game story expansion that originally released in Persona 3 FES on PlayStation 2, as Episode Aigis in September. Officially named Episode Aigis -The Answer-, the story begins after the finale of the base Persona 3 storyline. 

Players will meet a new character, Metis, and take control of Aigis as the main character. The members of S.E.E.S. are caught in a mysterious time loop and must explore a new dungeon to discover the truth as they're still struggling to get over the base game's finale.

Just like Persona 3 Reload, the new Abyss of Time dungeon has more fleshed out environments in the same manner that Tartarus saw in the remake.

Episode Aigis -The Answer- is the final part of the Persona 3 Reload Expansion Pass. The first wave that arrives on March 12 include new BGM sets with tracks from Persona 5 Royal and Persona 4 Golden. In the second wave in May, players will be able to dress up several characters with Velvet Room costumes and another BGM set.

The Persona 3 Reload Expansion Pass is free to all Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers.
