Japan Import: Persona 3 being turned into a movie


A whole lot of Persona is about to enter gamers’ lives. I’m not talking about Persona 4 Arena and Persona 4 Golden either. I’m talking about the media forms. Japan’s already got a Persona 4 anime series, manga series and movie, as well as a forthcoming light novel. Now, the Persona 4 movie has revealed that a Persona 3 movie is in the works.

The reference to the Persona 3 movie was brief, but effective. At the end of Persona 4 The Animation: The Factor of Hope, a brief trailer showed the Persona 3 hero, referred to as Minato, using an evoker. That’s the gun-shaped device characters in the third game would use to summon their personas. Viewers were then told the Persona 3 movie was in development.

And that’s all we know. The segment didn’t say anything about when it would be released. I’d imagine it’ll probably be at least a year before we see the Persona 3 movie in Japan. At least the good news is that we should probably see it in North America eventually. After all, Sentai Filmworks picked up Persona 4: The Animation to distribute here.
