Hee-ho: Atlus takes us to a Persona Winter Wonderland


I've been waiting for this!

With Persona 3 The Movie #4: Winter of Rebirth getting ready to hit theaters in Japan next month, Atlus has revealed that they're teaming up with the Nippon Ski Resort Development to bring us not one but two Persona-themed events at two different ski resorts on Jan. 26, 2016, which happens to be on the same day of the film's opening day. Titled the Persona Snow Festival 2016, these two festivities are a Persona 3 The Movie collaboration at the Ryuoo Ski Park and a Persona 4 Golden-themed event at the Meiho Ski Resort.

In regards to the event's unique features, people will get to listen to music from the two Persona games while they challenge the snowy hills. Of course, the tunes are likely based on the location that one chooses to visit. If anything, this segment sounds like a good way to relive the ski event from Persona 4 Golden.

For those who want to ski in style during this beary special event, the Atlus D Shop is selling Thanatos-themed skis and an Izanagi-themed snowboard, which are priced at ¥ 64,800 (around U.S. $527.67) and ¥ 54,000 (around U.S. $439.72). If one finds both items to be too pricey, they're also available as rental equipment at the two locations.

Both ski resorts plan to have special tours down the road, which might also have a Persona twist to it. Even though I never got the chance to learn how to ski or snowboard, I'll admit that I'm a bit curious to see how they handle the Persona 3 and 4 collaboration event. Right now, the best thing that I can do is to hope that I can catch a festivity like this when I visit Japan one day.
