    Game System

    As you defeat enemies, you will gain experience points and Aigis will level up. You can also purchase equipment using the money you get along with experience points. In particular, there are three types of weapons, each with their own unique attack methods, so it’s fun to switch them out depending on the battle situation and preference.

    Equipment can be purchased at the Workshop in the Lab. The workshop also sells other items, which have effects such as restoring Aigis’ hit points.

    The Persona that can be said to be a feature of the original work is alive and well in this work. Help Aegis with powerful attacks and support skills. However, once used, “SP (Soul Points)” will be consumed, and it cannot be used until the gauge returns to full through recovery over time.

    Persona will learn new skills when Aegis’s level reaches a certain level.


    The setting of this work is Yakushima, 10 years before the main story “Persona 3”. In addition to the original characters of this work, characters that appeared in the main story will also appear and color the story.
    Aegis exercises held on an island surrounded by nature. “A certain incident” happened during that time…
    A story related to Aegis’ past that was never told in the main story will now be revealed.

    Original characters with strong personalities just like the original. What kind of relationship will they have with Aegis from 10 years ago?
