There was a recent update to the Persona 3 movie website, which revealed a new key visual for the fourth movie. The update also included details on advance ticketing in Japan, as well as a finale event after the film opens and Blu-ray and DVD release details for the third movie. The finale event will be held at Shinagawa Stella Hotel in Tokyo on March 5, and will feature appearances by Akira Ishida, Megumi Toyoguchi, Megumi Ogata, and unnamed others.
The last movie, titled Persona 3 the Movie #4: Winter of Rebirth, opens in Japanese theaters on January 23, 2016, with advance sales starting at specific theaters throughout Japan on September 5, as well as posters and flyers coming out in those theaters that same day. The advance tickets will sell for 1500 yen (about $12 USD) apiece, and will come with a bonus 2016 desktop calendar featuring various key images from the movie series.
The third movie, Persona 3 the Movie #3: Falling Down, will release on DVD and Blu-ray on January 20. It will release with a limited complete pressing, that will include a soundtrack CD, 10 “super P2 seals”, three illustration cards with key visuals from the third movie, among other things, and will come in a box featuring exclusive artwork. In addition, anyone who buys all three movies on Blu-ray or DVD from certain stores will receive a special box for all the movies with exclusive art by main Persona character artist Shigenori Soejima:
The series website has a synopsis of the movie:
“The time of destruction is coming ever closer without a doubt. It cannot be stopped.”
To know death, to gaze at death, to face death.
Makoto and his allies have grown through the many meetings and partings they have experienced.
Their fight might not be for the sake of the world, but for themselves. Even so, they have continued to fight, believing that there are peaceful days waiting at the end of the battle.
However, a boy says that destruction is the fate that humanity must shoulder. The boy they believed to be their friend tells them the truth of the situation without an emotion on his face.
The season changes to winter. Makoto makes a decision in order to greet the spring that is waiting beyond….
These announcements follow the most recent trailer for the movie that came out last month:
