Report: A “Persona 3″ Movie Is In Development

Atlus’ dark RPG series is headed to the big screen in Japan as a feature for Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 gets the greenlight.

At the conclusion of the recent animated feature Persona 4 The Animation -The Factor of Hope, Atlus teased an upcoming feature based on Persona 3, according to a post by the Anime News Network.

The attached studio, talent, release date, or even if it will be live-action or animated remains to be seen, but the safe bet is probably on anime given that the teaser involved an animated version of the silent Persona 3 protagonist holding a gun to his head, pulling the trigger, and announcing the feature had been greenlit.

In Persona 3, you play as a high school student battling demonic forces during a hidden hour between one day and the next as a member of the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad (SEES).

The Persona 4 series was developed by studios AIC ASTA & Aniplex, and presumably both will be involved in at least some capacity with the feature.
