Back in June, we reported news of a Persona 3 movie that was in the works. News of the project has been scarce since the original announcement, but today, the official website for the Persona 3 movie was updated, and now says:

 

Persona 3 the Movie #1

2013 in theaters

 

Wait, movie #1? Does that mean we’re looking at more than one Persona 3 movie? Atlus managed to squeeze Persona 4 into a single film, but that game also had a full-length anime series devoted to it.

 

So, either Persona 3 is being given multiple movies to make up for the lack of an animated series or maybe there are plans for a male and female version, to reflect Persona 3 Portable, which let you pick a female protagonist with a slightly different story to play as.
