The Persona series is well-known for having long storylines, and Persona 3 Reload packs almost no side content that can be left behind to rush the main story. If you are wondering how long P3R is, here’s all about its main story length and time to beat.

The cult classic from the PS2 era is back as Persona 3 Reload, and it is now available on all major platforms since February 2, 2024. The original Persona 3 was the first in the series to feature a complete 3D adventure along with social interactions and dungeon-crawling RPG gameplay.

Persona 3 Reload adds some extra content, but it doesn’t feature the ‘The Answer’ Epilogue from Persona 3 FES nor its female protagonist route from the PSP version. There’s a rumor going around that the P3 FES Epilogue might be coming to Reload as DLC, but we are still waiting for an official confirmation.

With all this in mind, you might be wondering how long Persona 3 Reload is, and here’s all about its main story length and time to beat.

Persona 3 Reload: How long to beat

Persona 3 Reload is 57 hours long for its Main Story and 71 hours long if players do some of its side content, according to HowLongToBeat. Across all play styles, the approximate time to beat P3R is 62 hours.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 takes around 82 hours to beat the main story and almost 122 hours for a completionist run. On the other side, FES is a tad shorter, as it takes 80 hours for its main story, but the completionist run is almost 136 hours due to its final epilogue called ‘The Answer.’
