Atlus has recently announced Persona 5: Dancing Star Night and Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night, which are both scheduled for a Spring 2018 launch in Japan for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
Both rhythm-based dancing games were announced during the Persona Super Live P-Sound Bomb!!! 2017 concert, and their respective trailers were made available on the official Persona dance website. Similar to the dual versions launched by Nintendo for each mainline Pokemon game, both Persona: 5 Dancing Star Night and Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night offer something unique. Each dancing game features their respective cast of characters and brand new songs. As Persona 4: Dancing All Night featured remixed songs of the original game, both newly announced games are expected to do the same.
At present, gameplay details are scarce, and whether the games will offer a canonical story-driven rhythm game similar to Persona 4: Dancing All Night remains unknown. Additionally, a Western launch has yet to be announced, though is likely as previous Persona spin-off games eventually launched outside Japan.
Previously, Atlus registered multiple internet domains a few weeks after Persona 5 launched in the West, and just yesterday, Persona Central’s Mystic confirmed that both domains for Persona-Dance.jp and P5R.jp were moved to Atlus’s servers. While Persona-Dance obviously pertains to the two newly announced dancing games, no official word has yet emerged about P5R, which is largely speculated to be an updated version of Persona 5.
In other news, Persona Q2 was also announced for the 3DS during the Persona concert, though no trailer and gameplay details were shown.
