Persona 5: Dancing Star Night and Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night Have New Trailers

In a Christmas livestream held by Atlus, the new Persona dancing games Persona 5: Dancing Star Night and Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night were given new trailers ahead of their release next year.

The two games will lack the story modes that were a core part of Persona 4: Dancing All Night, which told a story of the Inaba Investigation Team meeting Rise's fellow idol Kanamin and defeating a God through dance. It was basically a visual novel interface, but for players who wanted more interactions with their favorite characters, it was an awesome inclusion in the game.

Atlus has assured fans, however, that the games will have character interactions to help make up for the missing story mode. Each character in both games is assigned a dancer for their choreography and motion capture, with Atlus insisting dancers were also chosen based on how well they match the character's personality. How exactly that works, I cannot say, but it is the sort of move I'd expect of Atlus when it comes to Persona games.

Also announced during the stream, a port of Persona 4: Dancing All Night has been announced for PlayStation 4. The port is scheduled to release in May in Japan. No western release has been announced just yet.

Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night are scheduled for Spring 2018 in Japan for PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4.
