Persona 3 animated film out this November in Japan

Adaptation of Persona 3 video game may be first in unspecified number of films.

The animated film adaptation of the PSP/PlayStation 2 role-playing game Persona 3 will be released in Japanese cinemas on November 23.

Persona 3's Scooby Gang is back in animated form later this year.

According to the official website, Persona 3 #1: Spring of Birth may be the first in an unspecified number of films. As previously reported, the film's production was handled by animation company AIC A.S.T.A., which previously adapted Persona 4 into an anime.

On a related note, the anime adaptation of Persona 4 has already been released in North America; the first DVD collection was released on September 18 last year. For more information on Persona 3, check out GameSpot's review of the 2007 PS2 RPG.

P3P was a good game, surprised me that i nearly missed it lol. Making a movie about it does make sense since ive heard they made a P3 anime based on what happened after the game (If its cannon is questionable tho). I wonder if they will dub it or like most of these movies kept in japanese

how are they gonna pack 1 year story into a movie? a TV series like P4 will easily work, but it really test the writer to compress those into a 2 hour long movie.

Now that I finished FES weeks ago (I'll go 2nd playthrough to defeat Elizabeth), I'm looking forward to watching this movie, hopefully it'll be in a form of Blu-Ray when it's coming to US, though I'm not sure how many movies it'll release. It's going to be epic!

Looks beautiful, the environment, characters, especially how Fuuka looks in this new movie.

@apollooooWont just be one movie, more like 3 or 4. They sometimes convert TV shows into several movies. Clues in the name, Persona 3 #1: Spring of Birth.

@Bhemont I guess Burn My Brea- I mean Dread will be played at the last battle. I would be sad if that song is not in the movie. 

And you must talking about the new music in the trailer right? Just want to clarify.

@FuryX-4 Yeah, thought it was a cool intro/trailer music in P3FES, so I was surprised that it wasn't in this trailer, guess they decided to go with new style, by adding more sound tracks.  Got to love Shoji Meguro. :)
