It took long enough for them to do it, but Atlus finally went and announced the transition of Persona 3 from videogame into anime, this time in the form of a movie tease tacked onto the "True Ending" theatrical release for Persona 4. The saga of SEES and its fight against the Shadows will be chronicled in feature film format, and armed with the title Persona 3 - Factor of Hope -.
Now you too can begin hoping - for more details, as Atlus has opened up a teaser site for the film, complete with a picture of the protagonist and a convenient clock. I wonder what it'll reveal at midnight, which is the same time as The Dark Hour, which is like the Midnight Channel but for time.
