Persona 3 Anime Film Coming To Japan
Atlus's much-loved RPG is getting the big-screen treatment in its native Japan with Persona 3 The Movie #1: Spring of Birth, due out this fall.
The anime production company behind the project, AIC A.S.T.A., is known for its adaptation of Person 4 as well as GunxSword and Blood+. Anime International Company, the parent organization, has produced an absurd amount of anime from Bubblegum Crisis to Ah! My Goddess.
Though the protagonist of Persona 4 has whatever name the player assigns, the film's main character is named Makoto Yuki.
No word yet on whether the movie will eventually see a U.S. release, but given the size and enthusiasm of the Persona fanbase the likelihood of a fan translation following its Japanese release approaches 100 percent.
