Persona 3 is one of my favorite video games of all time so picking up the art book was something I was sure to enjoy. Much like the Persona 4 book, this features character, persona, and shadow designs with some promotional art and environments thrown in. Soejima is once again an entertaining voice to guide you through his designs and the interview at the end is great for any fan of the game.

UDON produces some really nice art books, and this one is no exception. A word of warning to people who haven't played the game, this book does contain some spoilers. Otherwise it has a lot of great concept and game art with commentary from the artist about his inspirations. It is a little on the short side, and kind of odd to be coming out now, 5+ years after the game was released. Still if you enjoyed the game, it is worth the time.

Such pretty designs!! I like the storyboard for the OP "Soul Phrase" and the little character biographies are also very awesome. This game is one of my absolute favorites, and I always wish I could forget playing it so I can play it again and again.
