A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

After finding themselves awakening in the middle of a romantic fantasy induced by one of the Full Moon Shadows, Yukari Takeba and Mitsuru Kirijo find that the feelings of lust that drove this fantasy persist long after the Shadow is killed. They must now discover whether these feelings are legitimate or implanted by their deceased foe. All the while, Yukari rejects the notion that she has feelings for the heiress of the Kirijo Group due to what the Kirijo family has cost her.

The story is told from both characters' perspectives as they discover more about themselves and each other.

Their journey is brought to life by AI-upscaled art assets from the original game, the Persona 3 soundstrack and voice lines, and CG artwork from a variety of fanartists using the P3D models.

While the main story is complete, there are plans to add further supplemental chapters in future, along with general improvements as I better learn Ren'Py.

Hi Snake :)

I am not happy with my previous comment that lacked feelings that I wanted to write down  so I am here again for another comment.

I am a fan of Persona 3 too...but  that is obvious.

I mostly play romance visual  novels and a lot of them are  Yuri visual novels, so playing this visual novel puts together my love for both Persona 3 and Yuri visual novels together.

It is very well made and I am happy that Yukari and Mitsuru fought against all the issues and ended up so happy together,  Makoto death is a sad time of Persona 3 that for sure, I felt so sad for him and Aigis.

My first time playing Persona 3 was with the portable version about 4 years ago where I played both with Makoto and Kotone paths..and I found the Kotone path more to my liking, after that I decided I needed to play the FES version  and playing this visual novel makes me remember that I really need to finish it..I have left it hanging for over a year now near the end due to the boredom of collecting gold and persona's,  I not even played  "The answer" yet.

( I do love Persona 2 and 4 too,  never played 1 and 5)

You visual novel is really amazing and the added art style are beautiful ❤️

I hope more people will noticed your visual novel and see how amazing it is❤️❤️

Will you make more visual novels based on Persona games? or any other?


Thanks for the nice message. I'm considering adapting Phantom Data into a VN once it's finished.

Hello :)

I thought I had left a comment or rated it before but I guess I forgot about doing it.

That was nice to play and looks like I will have to try that new version :)

Great job on making this :)


Thank you. I hope you like the new additions.
