Aniplex of America has announced that they will be offering the second Persona 3 movie as an import Blu-ray. The title will be available this March in Collector’s and Standard edition formats, with the Collector’s Edition available for $99.98 and Standard Edition available for $74.98. Both versions are slightly cheaper through Rightstuf, though this does seem like another expensive option from Aniplex.

SANTA MONICA, CA (January 12, 2015)– Aniplex of America announced today that they will be distributing the Shin Megami Tensei Persona3 THE MOVIE #2 Midsummer Knight’s Dream on both collector’s and standard edition Blu-ray imports in over 50 territories starting March 11th.

About Shin Megami Tensei: Persona3 THE MOVIE #2 Midsummer Knight’s Dream

“I wish it would stay like this every day…”

Following his transfer to Gekkoukan Private Academy, Makoto Yuki is suddenly attacked by a strange monster called Shadows and is awakened to a power which allowed him to summon a Persona. Seeing Makoto’s potential, the members of the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad approach him to join them in their battle against these creatures. Makoto, initially feeling detached from the situation accepts their invitation indifferently, but as he learned more about the “Dark Hour,” and engaged in many harsh battles, he began feeling a strong bond with his teammates.

And so the season turned from spring to summer… the battle was far from over for the SEES team, now joined by a new member, but they all felt a sense of fulfillment even as they faced these abnormal circumstances.

The wheels of fate began to turn… as they were about to learn of the new trials they must face.
