Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and P5: Dancing in Starlight Groove to the West on PS4 and PS Vita

Time to shake it like a Polaroid picture in both worlds from Persona 3 and Persona 5. 


Atlus has finally confirmed that Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night will both be coming westward. The games even get a name change, from Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Moon Night to Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight. It's still a mouthful, but those names do make more sense for English-speaking fans. 

Both games will take you to the weird world of Club Velvet, where for some unknown reason a wealth of characters from both Persona 3 and Persona 5 have been kidnapped and forced to dance themselves silly. You'll have to be a key part of this nefarious dance party, as you collect a ton of new costumes and accessories and shake it to songs from both titles by Shoji Meguro. 

You've probably already been ogling the trailers since their Japanese debut, but these English versions are guaranteed to get you more hype, especially since we know our favorite characters are making their triumphant return with those awesome voice actors we loved from their respective games. Hey, don't knock them! They were awesome. 

The games already launched in Japan on May 24, but we'll get them in our hands soon enough. Maybe just not soon enough for my tastes, however. Next year is a long way off, and I'm practically dying to put my dancin' shoes on. It's been a long time since I got to really break it down in a quality rhythm game, and these games should scratch that itch just fine.

          I generally don't bother with Persona games

          I’m operating on the ignorant assumption that these games are taking away dev time from real Persona games.

          Although even if that’s false my question remains.

            Japan (I'd even say that those might be more popular than the rpgs) ? Also weird niche games can make obscene amounts of money (train simulator comes to mind). Fuck whenever I'm wondering "who pays for this shit!?" I remind myself of star citizen.

            And the are giant industry carrying games that seem far away in the distance even on the shack, folks are still people playing wow and other mmo since launch, I don't know a single person who played gta online more than 3 days after launch but the game apparently prints money etc
