Banner ad hints at a Persona 3 FES announcement too?

By Spencer . February 21, 2008 . 8:32am


QBasic sent over a picture of an advertisement (thanks!!), which appears to be a silhouette of character holding an evoker. Juan points out in the comments (also thanks!!) that RPGamer is running the ad and it has an active timer ticking away until Monday morning. 


The art oozes Persona 3 and announcement about Persona 3 FES seems likely. However, Atlus is giving this an unusually high amount of hype. Perhaps, they have a corresponding surprise like an announcement regarding the anime, a Nintendo Wii port or a limited edition package to go along with it?

    Yey!! Im being named in Siliconera :) , one dream come true, now for the other one…..

    Persona 3 FES or Ill be very sad :(

  • p!ry311

    FEEEEESSSS!!! We need more persona and Megaten games from atlus

  • Blank

    this is really cool but i don’t know if i actually want to spend another 90 hours on a game i already beat

  • Angelous

    @ Blank – Yes, you will spend XX amount of dollars on Persona 3. Why? Because Atlus is awesome and we need to support them.

    At worst, consider it an investment. Persona 3 is fetching double the retail price on Ebay these days…

  • QBasic

    Good job finding it too, Juan. :)

  • I got the new issue of Play Magazine yesterday and in the front cover there was a two-page ad with that same image and sprawled across the two pages.

    Only a few more days :D

  • QBasic

    Boston, mind snapping a photo or scanning that?

  • QBasic: I’m at work for another three hours, but I’ll see what I can do when I get home tonight.

  • ryne11

    “I think I am going to lose the BOWEL control!”

    Seriously, Atlus is gonna make me poor[er].

  • ryne11

    Though I would rather there not be a Wii version. I really don’t want to double dip, though I would.

  • QBasic

    lol. FES *is* a double dip. XD

  • C-Jo

    Special Edition includes Innocent Sin and a handwritten apology letter.

  • ryne11

    @QBasic- Double double Dip ;)

  • Blank


    hours, not dollars
    i’ve got the money, but i dunno about the time

  • I was hoping to get some pictures of the Play Magazine ad, but my camera isn’t quite working and my cell phone takes absolutely horrific pictures.

    Luckily, some kind soul on NeoGAF posted a picture of it:

  • QBasic

    Bottom right corner, I need to know EVERYTHING that it says, Boston.

  • lastworthy

    Wishful theory:
    I don’t know that they’d actually do a print campaign for a teaser of an expansion.
    I have a feeling this is more than just the expansion. Maybe the anime too? Maybe they were waiting to bundle it with an additional expansion? I have difficulty believing Atlus Japan wouldn’t readying something new to capitalize on the anime as well.

    Even if it’s just fes I’m completely stoked. I was already planning to spend *all* tomorrow on it…

  • QBasic: The bottom right corner says: (C) 2008 Atlus U.S.A., Inc. There’s nothing else on the page that I can see. Hope that helps :D

  • QBasic

    lol, usually they’d have some type of useful property copyright written down. So much for that. Thanks though!
