posted on by Sarah Nelkin
New key visual featuring Makoto, Ryōji also unveiled for film premiering April 4

The official website for the Persona 3 film series updated at midnight on Thursday, and unveiled the second full trailer for Persona 3 the Movie #3 Falling Down on Saturday. The video features the movie's main theme song, "Light in Starless Sky" by Lotus Juice and Yumi Kawamura.

Fallos: People really can't live anyway else but alone. It'd be better not to have any connections. After all, you'll just get hurt if you lose them.
Takaya: Now... It's time for the conviction!!
Fūka: They're coming!
Ryoji: So you're a transfer student, too? That's a happy common point we have between each other. I get the feeling we're going to get along.
Makoto: But everything will disappear someday... Even Aegis...
Fallos: Then you don't need anything from the beginning. You don't want anything.
Aegis: I will not... disappear.
Yukari: We're going to find out whether it's useless or not from here on out, right!?
Mitsuru: well then, let's see it to the end.
Junpei: Leave this to me...! Only me...!
Chidori: When I'm with you, Junpei... I get scared of everything I wasn't of before!
Makoto: Aegis! Don't do it! Don't you know who we are...!?
Fūka: It's here! It's Tartaros!
Junpei: Stop it!!
Takaya: It changed!
Jin: What's up with this power!?
Aegis: You are bad. You are... an enemy.

The website lists the story:

"I kind of understand now... You're afraid of losing things, right?"

The season turns to autumn. The fight of the protagonist and his group S.E.E.S. with the strange monsters Shadows is getting closer to an end. Makoto and his allies engage in life-or-death battles with Shadows in order to end the Dark Hour. Through the battles, some must face the deaths of friends and family, some must notice what precious things must be protected, and some must find meaning in the battles that have occured.

In front of Makoto, the mysterious transfer student Ryōji Mochizuki appears. When the group greets a new morning, the gears of fate begin to turn. A fight revolving around each of the heroes' bonds begins...

The third film was announced at the end of the second film last summer, with a message reading, "comming soon" in misspelled English.
