I hope they do both The Journey and The Answer.

Which means, more than one movie.

so excited for this was hoping they would do a series with 3 too but i guess a movie is better then nothing I'm just worried about how there gonna go about pacing since they only have like -2 hours to work with. i'm prepare to have almost no character development and lots of shadow killing haha.

Maybe this time I'll be able to finish the damned story (had two 70 hour attempts, both failing due to loss of interest after a certain 'I'M RLY EVIL, MUHAHAHA' twist where the story shows itself to be poopy).

Persona 3 Movie?? i feel like crying because i cant speak japanese. Story wise, persona 3 got a hell lot better stories than Persona 4. Persona 4 is like a bit more little shocking development.

I have mixed feelings about this. I'd want it to be good since I *love* both P3 and P4.

But considering how P4A was (to quote another poster) "faithful to the original game, but an absolute train wreck", I don't expect the P3 movie to fare any better. I'll still watch it at any rate.

Still, it would be nice for Persona 5 to finally see the light of day instead of pimping out P3 and P4 so much.
The pimping bit is actually, in a large part, to create a wave of anticipation for the Persona series. It'd be foolish of them not to follow Golden and Arena (as well as the P1 and P2 Ports) with a timely Persona 5 game. But all that in time.

F**k yeah! My 2nd favorite game is adapted. And moreover, a movie!

Well this is really great news for P3's fan since this is pretty much confirmed now.

But the bad news is that according to the P3M official twitter, the movie production has not even entered the first stage. All they did was the confirmation of the movie's production.

So we probably have to wait a little longer (probably the end of 2013) for the movie to be released in theaters.
