[size=20]1st Persona 3 Blu-ray/DVD Adds 7 Minutes of Cut Footage[/size]
posted on 2014-02-15 23:02 EST

The official Twitter account for Persona 3 The Movie #1 Spring of Birth, the first anime film of Atlus’s Persona 3 RPG, announced on Saturday that the Blu-ray and DVD release of the film will include seven minutes of footage that was cut from the film in theaters. The cut was made due to “various circumstances,” despite these scenes being “well-known to fans.” According to the staff, some clips from these scenes appear in the commercials for the film.

The main disc of the limited edition of the Blu-ray and DVD release will include the full director’s cut of the film with the seven minutes of cut footage, a collection of promotional videos and commercials, and audio commentary.

The limited edition Blu-ray and DVD release will also bundle the original theatrical cut of the film, an original soundtrack CD which includes the ending theme song “More Than One Heart” by Yumi Kawamura and background music tracks, a box with three sides illustrated with new art by Keisuke Watabe, a “Digi Jacket” with original art, a 48-page booklet, 10 “Super P3 Stickers,” (one exclusive to the bundle, and nine from the theater bonuses chosen at random), and four illustration cards featuring key visuals for the first film.

The normal version of the film on Blu-ray and DVD will only contain the audio commentary and special footage, excluding the version of the film only screened in theaters.

The film will go on sale in Japan on May 14. The limited edition Blu-ray and DVD packs will sell for 8,400 yen (about US$84) and 7,350 yen (US$73), respectively. The normal editions of the film will retail for 6,300 yen (US$63) on Blu-ray and 5,250 yen (US$52) on DVD.

[size=16]Aniplex USA to Release 1st Persona 3 Film on Blu-ray Disc[/size]

Collector’s, Standard Editions to ship on May 20

Oh for crying out loud AoA, if you’re going to release it yourselves at least dub it.

A booklet that comes with a smaller booklet to translate the larger? That achieves levels of ridiculous on par with Hank Hill’s small can of WD40 to loosen the big can of WD40. AoA will include a booklet that translates another booklet but can’t be bothered to slap some subtitles on the video content?

Why release a half-baked (but fully priced) import version now and a dubbed, “primo” edition down the road when you can just do it right the first time? AoA can’t “go Geneon” fast enough.

Magazine previously ran from 2011-2012

Atlus games announced during Friday’s “Dark Hour TV ~Persona Hour~” live program on Niconico that Persona Magazine will resume publication on July 12, 2014. ASCII Media Works previously published the magazine monthly between 2011 and 2012, and special issue was released in 2013 to reveal Persona 5.

The magazine ran a regular column that delved into the world, characters, and game system of the Persona game franchise. Other sections covered the latest information on upcoming titles, and leading artists contributed “tribute illustrations” in every issue. The magazine also included Shūji Sokabe’s Persona 3 manga and a spinoff of the Persona 4 manga.

Atlus also announced the anime adaptation of the Persona 4 Golden PlayStation Vita game on the program.

The release will include the full director’s cut of the film, audio commentary, and promotional videos. The Blu-ray Disc release will also include a special video that screened with the film featuring Elizabeth and Margaret.

The limited edition Blu-ray and DVD release will also bundle the original theatrical cut of the film, an original soundtrack CD that includes Lotus Juice’s opening theme song “Fate is In Our Hands” and background music tracks, a box with three sides illustrated with new art by Keisuke Watabe, a “Digi Jacket” with original art, a 48-page booklet, 10 “Super P3 Stickers,” (one exclusive to the bundle, and nine from the theater bonuses chosen at random), and three illustration cards featuring key visuals from the second film.
