A fairly elaborate debug menu remains in this game. You can make your own cutscenes, apply sound effects and BGM, apply graphics to appear during cutscenes, and toggle various settings in this menu. To enable it, apply the code below for your version of the game.

Master Code (Only needed for cheat devices used on a console)
90506658 0C14193E
Debug Menu Enable

Master Code (Only needed for cheat devices used on a console)

pnach format, for use with PCSX2 (FES USA):


The file must be named 94A82AAA.pnach, and placed within PCSX2's user-related cheat directory. This is typically located at C:\Users\<USERNAME>\Documents\PCSX2\cheats.

With the above code active, enter New Game or enter any area with a cutscene. When the cutscene is playing, or in New Game, press R2. This will take you to the debug menu. Pressing Triangle while in this menu will send you to the cutscene editor window. Pressing Circle will exit out of an option.

  • L2/R2 to move a month.
  • Up/Down to move a week forward/back.

Unused Music

There are unused music from other Megami Tensei games.

KINPAKU.ADX is The Army of Ultimate Power's Imminent Arrival, from Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. The Soulless Army. "Kinpaku" means "tension" in Japanese.

MAP01.ADX is Tsukudo Cho (Rearrange), from Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon.

MAP02.ADX is A Strange World, from Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. The Soulless Army.

Early Cutscene

Unused Final

Inside the game's SOUND folder is a bizarre, unfinished version of P3CT003.SFD, the cutscene introducing Gekkoukan High School. This version uses storyboards for most of its backgrounds. The file is absent from the original Persona 3 release.

Version Differences

Voice Clips

A single voice line was re-recorded for this version of the game, specifically at the beginning when the Protagonist meets Ikutsuki:

Persona 3 Persona 3 FES
Please forgive the bad pun.
Please forgive the pun.

Oddly enough, the original line is used in Persona 3 Portable instead of this revised take.
