Atlus Shares Opening Movie Of Persona 3 For Franchise’s 25-Year Anniversary; “Burn My Dread”

To continue celebrating Persona’s 25-year anniversary, Atlus West has shared the opening movie for the original Persona 3, “Burn My Dread.” This is an iconic opening sequence and song that has resonated with fans since the game’s initial release. Unfortunately, it seems Atlus West has skipped uploading the PSP opening of Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, likely because it was never localized.

Atlus has shared official uploads of the following games’ respective openings:

The next upcoming Persona game release is the digital re-release of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, releasing for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam on March 17, 2022.

This title takes place after the ending of the original Persona 4, featuring elements from Persona 4 Golden, such as the character Marie. This game is a 2D fighter developed by Arc System Works, most prominently known for Blazblue and the recently released Guilty Gear Strive.

The official Steam page states that this re-release will include all of the content contained in the original Ultimax release and the story of the first Arena game. Further, Japanese and English dual audio options will be present.

Senior European PR manager for Atlus and RGG Studio, Sarah Wellock, has confirmed that this re-release will be digital-only.
