Atlus has revealed today that those wanting to dance as their favorite Persona characters will have that chance, as Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight will be releasing in the West on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. This is great news for those who have been following their releases in Japan last month as Persona 5: Dancing Star Night and Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night.
Here is an overview of both games, courtesy of the PlayStation Blog.
Both games will feature all of the songs included in their original Japanese versions, as well as a full English dub, dual audio options, and English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish subtitles.
Both games come complete with dozens of fan-favorite songs from the original Persona 3 and Persona 5 by Shoji Meguro, composed by Ryota Kozuka, as well as all-new remixes by ATOLS, Lotus Juice, ☆Taku Takahashi (m-flo / block.fm), Jazztronik, and more. You’ll start out with only a small selection of songs, but as you complete them, you’ll unlock more songs, dancers, partners, and costumes to customize your perfect performance.
Getting started in P3D/P5D is simple – choose a song, select a difficulty level, select your dancer(s), and get on with the show! After that, all you need to do is time button presses with the on-screen prompts in time with the music, and you’ll be jamming along with your favorite Persona series characters. There’s also an auto-play mode in case you just want to enjoy some catchy songs and expertly-choreographed dance routines (auto-play won’t count for progression, though).
Want to take a break and connect with the members of SEES or the Phantom Thieves? As you complete specified songs and accomplish various objectives, you’ll start to unlock “Social” event scenes between characters. These scenes offer a fun look into character personalities and relationships with each other; some “Social” scenes will also unlock new items after they’re viewed!
Are you excited to hear this and do you plan to pick them up when they release?
