News: “Persona 3 the Movie: #1 Spring of Birth” PV1 Released

Coming this Fall to Japan is Persona 3 the Movie: #1 Spring of Birth. The “#1” is a likely indication that there is going to be more than one movie in the works, which would be great because trying to truncate the entirety of the game’s story into the span of a movie would be very difficult. For those who have played Persona 3 may recall the Spring of Life, which the title would be a reference to. That might be a hint for what the movie will focus on and where it might possibly end if it is indeed the first in a future movie series.

Animation will be done by the same studio that did Persona 4 the Animation, AIC ASTA. While we all try to contain our unanimous groans, I have hopes that because this is a movie that animation quality will be a step or ten above what was done for P4A. The movie’s cast will retain the Japanese voice actors from the Persona 3 game, and the protagonist is now named Makoto Yuuki (roughly translating to “Castle of Bonds”), as opposed to his manga name Minato Arisato .
