    damn. burned my bread.

    (wild) card games on motorcycles!

    • Surgeon of Death

      Turbo duels of death confirmed?

    • new_tradition

      I watched the vid twice, but I’m missing this scene..? I only see the motorcycle at the end, and I don’t see any cards D:

      • Guest

        The Persona characters are usually affiliated to a Arcana card e.g Junpei=Magician, Yukari=Lover, Mitsuru=Empresses, with P3 MC also being referred to as “the Wild Card”. Of course, it will make more sense if it’s P4 MC doing his card crushing Persona summon or whatsoever, but I realized that the P3 MC fits the bill as well. (Since he’s sort of a card himself, y’know?)

        The meme itself can be used as “jumping the shark”, which I think the motorcycle scene kind of did…cuz I sure didn’t remember any scene with the male MC riding the bike and summoning his Persona at the same time in the game? My memories might have gotten a bit rusty though…been ages since I played it..just a tiny bit of nitpicking here=P

        • Xerain

          Mitsuru has a motorcycle…


          She gives it to the MC hf you max her social link.

          • Christopher Nunes

            So that means the MC and Mitsuru are the official couple for the movie series?

            Just kidding, he’s probably using it during their rescue mission of Fuuka on the Shadows. Epic nonetheless.

          • Xerain

            I just meant the motorcycle exists, and is around in the story. In fact, I’ve heard complaints that it wasn’t used more during the game. So I see the movie as addressing that.

    • You beat me to it.

  • Surgeon of Death

    Driving Mitsuru’s motorcycle. That sh#t is the greatest sh*t ever. I WANT IT NOW.

  • PotatoPower

    lmao when did mc ride a bike

  • 하세요

    I’ll always love P3 more than 4. So hyped, looks great.

  • Lolzandstuff

  • can’t wait for Aigis in the second/third movie!

  • Astromime

    that trailer was hype

  • $61526767

    That orgasm moment where he summons his persona was too great in my opinion. I’d pretty much got hype through the whole trailer and watched it 3-4 times already.

  • Tatsuya Fabre

    I did not think I could get more hyped than I already was…

  • Kami nii

    Things will get better after this I mean a possible Persona 5 announcement next day!!

  • Isaac Newton
  • Two words: Akira Ishida.

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    Persona 3 cast uses weapon… unlike in P4:A

  • Stranger On The Road

    Question, are the animes/movies for Persona dependent on the games?

    I keep skipping any anime related to Persona because I haven’t gotten around to playing the games yet.

    • neocatzon

      This one (Persona 3: Movie) and Persona 4 Animation is based on the games. But, there’s Persona: Trinity Souls which has original story with minimal to basic relation to the Persona or SMT series in general. You can enjoy that one without getting spoiled.

      • Stranger On The Road

        Thanks for the reply, really appreciate it

  • So he has to shoot himself in the head every time he wants to release his monster? o.O Weird…

    • Akemi Nakajima

      xDD You should play it.

      • i might!

        • Magicks

          ONE OF US. ONE OF US. ONE OF US.

          IIRC, I think the recommendation is to play the Persona 3: FES version for PS2. Though can’t remember if that’s available on the PSN or not.

          • Kaetsu

            It’s on PSN. That’s how I played it :D

            EDIT: I think it’s 10-15 dollars

    • neocatzon

      and they can do it in freestyle. Look, shot to the forehead or temple. Anything goes!

  • I’ll watch it either way, but oh god, I SOOO hope they translate and release this in English!

    • Kaetsu

      Considering they dubbed Persona 4 The Animation I think they will dub this as well.

  • Ric Vazquez

    Gotta burn my dread to the hype!

  • Prinnydoom

    Preferred it when he was called Minato Arisato but whatever. Movie looks amazing can’t wait for translation ^___^

    • Kaetsu

      Yeah me too but I still think Makoto sounds cool…just not Yuki.

  • SMT

    greatness awaits!

    • Shady Shariest

      *Robotic voice*
      Prau Staution.

      • SMT


        • Shady Shariest

          My fave part about their PR-videos :3

  • Rake

    Damn it! I cannot fucking wait. ATLUS PLEASE GIVE US A PERSONA 2 MOVIE LATER ON AS WELL D’:

  • Anthony Birken

    Motorcycles, Aigis, and operation babe hunt >:D

  • Servant BerserCAR

    I hope the first scene is exactly like in the game:

    *just arrived from a long trip, in the middle of the night, The Protagonist sees two high school girls with guns, and one of the girls were trying to shoot him*

    >Nice to meet you.
    Why do you have a gun?
    Is this the girls’ dorm?

    • ShadowDivz

      I think it’s more impressing that he walks through a town filled with coffins without flinching.

      • Servant BerserCAR

        In game scripts:

        [You walk through the town in the middle of the night. You see lots of coffins and bloods splatter everywhere]

        >GOD WHERE AM I!?!? HELP MEEEE!?!?

        *choose option 1*

        [You want to say that but you don’t have enough f*cks to give]

        • ShadowDivz

          My thought was actually “what sort of gox forsaken town have i walked into…”
