A new clip of what seems to be in development footage of a Persona 3 remake has seemingly surfaced online, along with footage from a Jet Set Radio title. The reel is reportedly from 2021 and consist of other footage of unannounced titles. While the footage has no backing the news outlet Gematsu states that a remake is in fact in development and has been for several years. Additionally, a domain name for the remake was recently spotted by Twitter user @MbKKssTBhz5 and was registered on March 15, 2023. It is also of the same domain as Persona 5 Royal. The Persona 3 footage was followed by early preview footage of Sonic Frontiers, then a brief five-second clip that seemingly shows Beat from Jet Set Radio dancing. The footage, if true, supports the rumored “big-budget” reboots of its Jet Set Radio and Crazy Taxi series at SEGA.
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
