The video game Persona 3 for the PS2 that was released in Japan on July 13, 2006 and subsequently released in North America on August 14, 2007 is getting an anime adaptation that will air in January 2008.

Aniplex's A-1 Pictures is adapting the Persona 3 PlayStation 2 role-playing game as a television anime series under the name Persona -trinity soul- for a January 2008 premiere. The anime is set a decade after the game, and will center around three brothers in a future city where the dead have risen with their skins turned inside out. The Persona games themselves are spinoffs from the long-running Shin Megami Tensei series.

Dude, that trailer belongs to the Persona 3 Movie thread and not here. This was a topic for the Trinity Soul anime 6 years ago.

Hopefully it's not a massive failure like Xenosaga.

I had always thought how cool it would be if P3 gets an anime adaption, and bam! It is now a reality~ Yea!

I was hoping that Persona 3 would get an anime adaptation. With the anime being a sequel to the game I hope they can tie some of the plot that happen in the end of the game.

Whee, that would be totally hot, too! I LOVE playing games on the PSP, haha, even if they are remakes, it's just awesome to have it with you.

I had a weird feeling when I saw this game that this would occur. Should be interesting.

Keeping expectations low. Any RPG that is animated has never proven to be any good, despite me being hopeful like 5 different times already. Persona 3, will you manage to prove me wrong?


Agreed.
