This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
Hmmm...
To do:

Lots.

Persona 3 Reload is a full-on remake of the original game, created with Unreal Engine. It includes a mostly-new English voice cast, quality-of-life improvements, higher-quality visuals, and gameplay elements from Persona 5. Though it has some features from FES and Portable, The Answer isn't included, but will be released as a separate DLC in September of this year.

Unused Graphics

In files relating to the cut-in materials, there's a texture for a slightly earlier version of Thebel, with kanji for temporary on top.

The Event/UI directory contains an early version of the Cinemascope used during 3D animated cutscenes.

P3R T UI TEST CinemaScope.png

An early version of a picture the S.E.E.S team takes together near the end of the game, showing earlier versions of the models used in-game. In the early version, it's a render rather then drawn, it's much higher resolution 3500x2125 rather then 1920x1090, the picture's aspect ratio is a little bit taller, Fuuka is angled towards Korumaru, Fuuka's sleeve is clipping into her chest, Korumaru has his S.E.E.S armband, everyone's expressions are slightly different, and Takeharu lacks any expression whatsoever and is in a slightly different pose.

Oddities

Dorm Registry

While not unused, the Dorm Registry on the front counter where the player signs their name at the start of the game is noteworthy for having "Save" in the internal names for its model assets (e.g., S_F102_102_Save). In the original games, the Dorm Registry was used as a save point, but in Reload it no longer has this function and instead the player can just press Start to save the game at any time. It's possible at some point, this could have been an alternate way to save.

Memories of You Internal Name

The internal names for the songs in the game in bgm.acb is noteworthy for using the same names as the bgm IDs from the original game (e.g., link_26.hca is Mass Destruction, and in the original game it was 26.ADX), though this only applies to the songs from the original game (most cutscene songs don't count). The internal name for Memories of You however, is link_42.hca. In the original game, 42.ADX was unused and just had 10 seconds of silence. This might possibly mean that Memories of You was also used for something else at some point in the original game other than the credits, or it may have just been separate audio from the video file.

DLC Strings

Within AddContentEntitlementNameDataAsset is a list of names the game uses when displaying what DLC you're missing when loading a save file.

Regional Differences

Startup Screen

Hmmm...
To do:
What languages do these apply to?

The screen showing the content warnings in the Japanese version of the game is actually an anti-piracy disclaimer, but otherwise the fictitious work disclaimer at the bottom remains the same.
