New Persona Dance Spin-Offs Receive First Details

Persona 5 dancing star night persona 3 dancing moon night

New details on Persona 5: Dancing Star Night and Persona 3: Dancing: Moon Night surfaced online after information from Japanese magazine Famitsu was leaked.

Shared by Ryokutya (via NeoGAF), unlike Persona 4: Dancing All Night, neither upcoming spin-off game will feature a story mode, but will have something else as a replacement. In comparison, the previous rhythm game from the franchise featured a lengthy canonical story mode that followed on from the events of the main game.

Furthermore, both of these spin-off games will run at 60fps on PlayStation 4, with basic gameplay elements borrowed from Dancing All Night and improved upon.

The entire sound team from the earlier titles is said to be working on both rhythm-based games with the intention being to create a few new songs. The developers are also striving to make the spin-offs look more colorful than the original entries.

Initially revealed during the Persona Super Live P-Sound Bomb!!! 2017 concert, Persona 3 and Persona 5 will each receive a dancing game that features songs lifted from the original soundtrack, which are expected to be remixed for a more upbeat feel. The games are scheduled for a Spring 2018 launch in Japan for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, with no word about a Western release.

The most recent release for the series is Persona 5, which launched worldwide on April 4, 2017, and is currently the highest-rated PlayStation 4 game of the year, according to Metacritic.
