Cast, staff return for Persona 3 the Weird Masquerade ~Bismuth Crystal~

The official website for the stage play adaptations of Atlus' Persona 3 video game announced on Sunday that a third play has been green-lit.

The third play, titled Persona 3 the Weird Masquerade ~Sōen Kesshō~ (Persona 3 the Weird Masquerade ~Bismuth Crystal~), will premiere on June 4 at the Theater G Rosso venue in Tokyo, returning to the location of the first play. The play will have showings until June 13.

The following cast members have been announced as returning (the photos below are from the second play):

Shōta Aoi as Sakuya Shiomi (male protagonist)

Kana Asumi as Kotone Shiomi (female protagonist)

Maho Tomita as Yukari Takeba

Asami Tano as Mitsuru Kirijō

Genki Okawa as Junpei Iori

Yuuki Fujiwara as Akihiko Sanada

Marina Tanoue as Fūka Yamagishi

Waku Sakaguchi and Tomonori Suzuki as Ken Amada (double-cast)

ZAQ as Aegis (Aigis)

Takeya Nishiyama as Takaya

Hiroichi Matsumoto as Jin

Keisuke Ueda as Fallos (Pharos)

Shōichi Honda as Shūji Ikutsuki

Makoto Kimura is returning to direct the play, and Kodora Kagurazawa is also returning to write the scripts. The tagline for the play is, "It's weak, it's fragile, but still, the sparkling miracle stills ties together."

This will be the third Persona 3 play, with the first, Persona 3: the Weird Masquerade ~Ao no Kakusei~ premiering in January 2014, and the second, Persona 3 the Weird Masquerade ~Gunjō no Meikyū~ (Persona 3: the Weird Masquerade ~The Ultramarine Labyrinth~) premiering last September. Both plays had separate performances for the male protagonist (played by Shōta Aoi) and the female protagonist (Kana Asumi), and the two did not appear on stage at the same time.
