Visit the Midnight Hour With Persona 3 Anime Trailer

An animated adaptation of Persona 3 is hitting Japanese movie theaters this fall.

Persona 3, the Atlus JRPG in which Japanese high schoolers shoot themselves in the head to fight demons in a secret dungeon, is returning to Japan this fall–in movie form. Persona 3 The Movie #1: Spring of Birth was revealed today with a brief teaser trailer that is very much Persona, right down to the music.

Those who have played Persona 3 will recognize one of the game’s prominent, catchy songs (of which the soundtrack has many) running through the trailer. There’s also a glimpse of the silent protagonist, his Evoker (that gun pointed at his head), and his first persona, Orpheus.

Persona 3 The Movie #1: Spring Awakening will be directed by Noriaki Akitaya. This isn’t the first time Atlus’ Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series has gotten the anime treatment; there’s already a Persona 4 anime, and Persona Trinity Soul is loosely based on the series. I’m not the biggest anime fan, but I am a huge Persona 3 fan, so I’m actually very curious to find out how the 100+ hour JPRG masterpiece works as an animated movie.
