Judging from screenshots, it seems that these upcoming Xbox JRPGs were meant to be revealed during the Xbox Games Showcase later this week. It is a shame to see the surprise spoiled but a remake of Persona 3 is still nonetheless exciting news for Persona fans as the original title is considered one of the best in the series for its dark themes and it pioneered the Social Link gameplay mechanic the series is famous for. 

If this supposed remake of Persona 3 turns out to be real and it features improved gameplay and visuals that surpasses Persona 5, we could see a new contender for one of the best JRPGs on Xbox consoles
