Persona 3 the Movie #1 Sees English Release On May 20th



May 20th will see the release of the English-language version of Persona 3 the Movie #1: Spring of Birth. Aniplex have released an English trailer for the movie, which you can watch above, and have also confirmed a collector’s edition release.


The collector’s edition will include the following items:


  • Soundtrack CD (including “More Than One Heart” by Yumi Kawamura)
  • Exclusive box art by Keisuke Watabe (character designer/animation director)
  • Newly illustrated cover art
  • 48-page Deluxe Booklet with English translation
  • 10 “Super P3 Stickers”
  • 4 Key art illustration cards


Meanwhile, both the standard and collector’s editions will include bonus content on the Blu-Ray disc, but this appears to be rather underwhelming. The major piece of bonus content included in both versions is audio commentary, but this will not be subtitled in English. Additionally, there is no English dub for the movie at all.


The collector’s edition will retail for $99.98, although Aniplex will sell it for $79.98. Meanwhile, the standard edition will retail for $74.98, but Aniplex will sell it for $59.98. Both versions are imports.
