Persona 3 Portable Opens Without Mass Destruction


Atlus made a brand new opening movie for Persona 3: Portable which has mirrored images and a rock theme.


It seems like the opening movie is hinting at a “what if” scenario for the female protagonist. The clip flashes phrases like butterfly effect, chaos theory, and even the Lyapunov Exponent which is used to estimate the level of entropy (i.e. disorder in a thermodynamic system). Good research, Atlus! I never thought I would talk about that in a post here…


All of these themes are probably linked to the alternate female protagonist, like how a simple gender change causes the entire plot to shift.


Persona 3: Portable comes out on November 1 to coincide with the PSPgo launch in Japan.
