    Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3

    Game » consists of 4 releases. Released Jul 13, 2006

    Persona 3 is the fourth main entry in the Persona series. Introducing the "Social Link" system and removing several Shin Megami Tensei staples including the post-apocalyptic setting, Persona 3 greatly expanded the popularity of the series, particularly in the west. It also established the balance of traditional role-playing combat and social simulation that would define the series going forward.

    Yeah, now that it's a trilogy I can't see how it'll go bad.

    After the train wreck of low production values , bad acting and terrible direction the p4 anime was , I have very low expectations of any persona related anime. Does anyone know if AIC are doing the animation production ? There seems to be very little specific information about the production online.

    While I do love Persona 3 and the fact that it's going to be adapted into an animated film is awesome I'm worried about how they'll be able to compress Tartarus exploration with the Social Link stuff into a 120-150 minute film. 
     
    Eh, we'll just have to wait for the film I guess. : |

    As Bocam mentioned, they've pretty much said it's going be more than one movie.

    Three about-two hour movies equals one season of a standard series, so I'm okay with this. P3 is my favorite, so I'll be a fanboy either way on this one.

    @Spike_Kojima: I can't imagine it being anyone else than AIC, though it weirds me out that they haven't just said it by now. If we're lucky they'll get a higher budget since P4A sold super well, I guess.

    Not a fan of Persona 3's story so I probably won't like this.

    I loved it going through the game but looking back I just like characters and not so much the overall story as well.

    I really don't care about most of the characters. They aren't unique or interesting in any way if you think about it. You also don't get much interaction with the male group as you don't have a social link with them which is vital to building their character in P4. I just think P4 does a better job with their story and character. I still like P3, but not for the story.

    Just like with the P4 anime I can't get really interested in this even when Persona 3 is my favorite of the Persona games stories because I already saw all that , I would rather have something new, tell a new story set after the game it doesn't matter if is canon or not I would totally watch an anime of that but the game is an anime the difference is that you're playing it even the filler episodes.

    There's Trinity Soul, but that anime wasn't really good.

    No he hasn't, because it doesn't exist.

    This, combined with the research I did when I encountered some oddities in this screenshot, makes me think I should get around to Persona 3 one of these days.

    Ok I meant to say tell a good new story , still I can't get all that excited about a story when I know every single twist and how is gonna turn out , probably the only part I'm anxious to hear is the soundtrack, P3 soundtrack and various remixes are so damn great.

    On a much lesser note I'm curious what they'll call the protagonist.

    @Video_Game_King: Just brace yourself for a step back in a few of the elements you liked in P4.

    Anyway, I feel that P3 is better off as a movie instead of a TV run due to how manga like it is.

    A new key visual

    Official site's been renewed and says "Persona 3 the Movie #1, 2013 in theaters." This confirms that this will, indeed, be spread across multiple movies.
