Despite its omission from Reload, recent rumors suggest that this content will be incorporated as Persona 3 Reload's post-launch DLC. This claim was first made by MbKKssTBhz5, or Midori, a notable leaker of Atlus' games with a reliable track record. She made the claim that The Answer would be added as DLC, with other cosmetics and music being added after launch as well. Shortly after Persona 3 Reload's release, modders found evidence that suggests these claims aren't unfounded.
The leak was posted by ruinedstego on Twitter, who found this information through data mining Persona 3 Reload. The data mine revealed that six new pieces of DLC are being planned to be released in the "P3R Expansion Pass." This will give players a set of items, new costumes, music, and The Answer epilogue from Persona 3 FES. The extra songs originate from Persona 4 Golden and Persona 5 Royal, with a separate pack that includes remixes of the Velvet Room's theme. There is also a Velvet Room costume set, which will likely give players the option to dress their party members in the same outfits as the Velvet Room attendants.

Modders were able to confirm that some of these DLC tracks already exist in the Steam version of Persona 3 Reload. Some were even able to have these tracks play while exploring the Tartarus dungeon by forcing Reload to load tracks like "I believe" from Persona 5 Royal or "Backside of the TV" from Persona 4 Golden, stating that the code for the two related DLCs already exists internally. Other versions, like the Xbox Game Pass PC version, don't have these tracks in the code.
A lot of what has been found in this data mine matches up with what Midori has previously stated. According to Midori, Atlus plans on releasing this DLC during the 2025 fiscal year. Midori also stated that fans shouldn't expect a DLC based on the Persona 3 Portable female protagonist's story, which is seemingly supported by this data mine. Despite this mountain of evidence, fans should still wait until Atlus releases more official information regarding post-launch DLC for Persona 3 Reload.
