Udon Entertainment has announced that they will be localizing the long awaited Persona 3 Manga series for the West.
Based on Atlus’ RPG video game series of the same name, Persona 3 dives deeper into the world created for fans to hang out with the characters that they’ve grown to love.
Udon Entertainment has sent us this information about the manga-via press release:
Persona 3 follows a diverse group of high school students as they stumble upon a strange phenomenon known as the “Dark Hour,” a mysterious time that occurs at the stroke of midnight, between one day and the next. Now, Minato Arisato and the rest of his friends in the Special Extracurricular Execution Squad must balance their busy high school lives with their continuing investigation into the Dark Hour – and you thought your high school life was tough! These unlikely heroes will have to face the demons within and find the strength to call upon their inner selves – their “Personas” – if they are to survive the horrors of the Dark Hour…
It doesn’t matter whether you’re a seasoned Persona 3 veteran or are just discovering this compelling world for the first time – the Persona 3 manga series is certain to appeal to anyone who simply enjoys smart storytelling dealing with themes of existence, identity, and the paranormal. Are you ready to face your true self?
Persona 3 Volume 1 manga will be available in September.
