Persona 3 The Movie #2 Nets English Subtitled Trailer

With a release date set for the not too distant future of March 11th, Aniplex of America has released an English subtitled trailer for Persona 3 The Moive #2: Midsummer Knight’s Dream. The film will be sold in Blu-Ray and via two versions, both standard and collector, with each providing different additional bonuses. Though I’m sure by now you know what a collector’s edition is, everything seems to have one these days. In addition to the trailers, commercials and audio commentary of the standard version, the collector’s edition in question will add a soundtrack CD, art box featuring an illustration by Keisuke Watanabe (character designer/animation director), new cover art, 10 stickers, 3 illustration cards and a 48 page booklet. Whew. IF all the extras weren’t enough of an incentive to buy, or the actual movie itself lest we forget that, Aniplex is also selling both editions at a discount. The collector’s edition will set you back US$79.98 (down from US$99.98) whilst the standard will be available for US$59.98 (down from US$74.98). All that considered, why …

Persona 3 The Movie: No. 3, Falling Down Release Date Announced

With Persona 4 receiving so much attention these days, fans know the city of Inaba about as well as their own home town. But fans of the Persona, and those with a rudimentary knowledge of mathematics, may recall that there was a Persona 3 that came before said fourth instalment. If you find yourself in this category of fan, then you may wish to know that the third film in the Persona 3 film franchise has received a definitive release date of April 4th. Of course, this release dat eapplies to Japanese cinema goers, but hey, at least we know it’s coming out soon. The film carries the subtitle “Falling Down” and will feature the theme song “Light in Starless Sky” as performed by Yumi Kawamura and Lotus Juice, who have worked on the music side of P3 in the past. So there’s also that, which is pretty awesome. Now we just have to wait for an English licensed version…curse my monolingualism. -30-

Persona Q – Shinjiro Aragaki and Yukiko Amagi Character Trailers Released

Both dressed in red; one’s a stone cold beast and the other is a bodacious babe. Isn’t it obvious who I’m referring to? It’s Shinjiro Aragaki from ‘Persona 3’ and Yukiko Amagi from ‘Persona 4’. They’re just two of the many stars of the upcoming ‘Persona’ Nintendo 3DS title ‘Shadow Of The Labyrinth’ and ATLUS thinks it’s about time they get their chance to shine bright with their very own character trailers. Aragaki and his Persona pal Castor are head-to-head brawlers. They take no back seat to the action and are always willing to act as any team’s vanguard duo whereas Miss Amagi and her Persona Konohana Sakuya prefer to take a stand somewhere in the rear guard, using magic to back up their teammates. Both characters will be able to work together brilliantly with one backing up the other as they mow down the enemies that stand before them. Don’t take my word for it though because, who knows, I could be wrong. What you should do is check out the two character trailers …

Oh, what’s that? You want more ‘Persona 4 Arena Ultimax’ news? ATLUS has got you covered, reader! The publisher/developer’s Japanese branch today released another character spotlight trailer for the upcoming game and this time the audience’s attention is entirely on Mrs. Mitsuru Kirijo from ‘Persona 3’. Being available as a playable character in the original ‘Persona 4 Arena’, her return hasn’t necessarily shocked fans but it has made them even more excited for the game’s release.

The game is just about to hit Japan and will be released in North America on the 30th of September on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 with a European and Australian release to closely follow. -30-

Persona 4 Arena Ultimax – Trailers Released For Akihiko Sanada and Aigis

ATLUS have done it again! It’s been about a week at this point in time since ATLUS last released screenshots or a gameplay trailer for their upcoming action title ‘Persona 4 Arena Ultimax’ which means that it is time for yet another pair of character spotlight trailers with these two focusing on ‘Persona 3’s’ very own Akihiko Sanada and Aigis. ATLUS never let too much time go by without tossing out more hype-inducing news regarding one of their titles and I think that’s why the world loves them. The brutal boxer Akihiko Sanada and the Anti-Shadow android Aigis are back and ready to brawl in these new trailers for the upcoming game and even though the trailers are entirely in Japanese I think audiences will get the gist of what is going on…these two rock ultimate! ‘Persona 4 Arena Ultimax’ is set for a North American release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this Autumn/Fall with a European release to follow shortly after that.
