The four-part film adaptation of the Persona 3 series since 2013 ended this year with the release Chapter 4—Persona 3 The Movie #4: Winter of Rebirth—on January 23.
Following this, to celebrate the climax of Persona 3 The Movie which has captivated fans, an event will be held at the Shinagawa Stellar Ball on March 5th, 2016.
