What is persona 3?
Persona 3 Is an totaly awsome game!! It starts out as a movie and this guy named Minato is going to a new place to live. When he gets off of the subway or train everything shuts off. It is the DARK HOUR. The dark hour is when the scholl turns into TARTERUS. TARTERUS is where all the shadows are. If a human is out of his\her coffin the shawdows will take over your body. Only persona users don't need a coffin. Persona users use an evoker, its not a real gunbut, you shoot yourself in the head to make your persona come out. There are many differend personas. In the game you can pick what you want to say go to TARTERUS at midnight or you can have fun. BUT, you only have a year to complete your task, if you don't the end will come. That's why you have to fight monsters and bosses to get to the top of TARTERUS to save the world.
The word, "persona" is Latin for mask. Persona is also where we got our English word, "person" from. We took persona and used it for person because often times a person will not show who they really are to people, therefore its almost like they are hiding behind a mask which is what "persona" means in Latin.
