Update: Atlus has confirmed both Persona 5 Tactica and Persona 3 Reload during today's Xbox Games Showcase 2023.
As we gleaned from a leak from last week and which is now confirmed, Persona 5 Tactica is set to release on November 17, while Persona 3 Reload is launching sometime early 2024.
Original story follows...
The trailers for both games went live briefly on Atlus West's official Instagram account, and although they were quickly deleted, the internet snatched 'em up first. There are several accounts across Twitter, Reddit, and Resetera sharing the trailers, both of which run a little more than a minute and show a good mix of cinematics and gameplay from the now all-but-confirmed Persona projects. Here they both are:

As both games have Xbox and Game Pass tags at the end, it's safe to assume that both of these games were planned for reveal at the upcoming Xbox showcase as was rumored.
At the end of each trailer is a respective launch window/release date, with Persona 3 Reload pegged for early 2024 and Persona 5 Tactica set to release on November 17, 2023.
Persona 3 Reload, as you might've gathered, is a remake of the 2006 RPG that originally launched on PS2. An updated version was released as Persona 3 Portable for the handheld PSP in 2009 and just this year made its way to Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
Persona 5 Tactica is a spinoff title featuring turn-based, grid-based action vaguely similar to Fire Emblem and XCOM. The leaked trailer shows the cast of Persona 5 but bearing a more cartoony, vaguely chibi-esque art style.
Ahead of the big show, here are all of the upcoming Xbox Series X games we already have on our radar.
