Atlus have confirmed overnight that the two recently released Persona Dancing titles will be getting a release outside of Japan in early 2019 along with a slight name change when the titles are localised.
Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight will be available on PlayStation 4 in Australia in early 2019.
Unfortunately it seems chances of the PlayStation Vita versions being released may be slim.
In Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight, the Specialised Extracurricular Execution Squad (SEES) and the Phantom Thieves are each whisked away to a secret room, known only as Club Velvet. Upon awakening, each group finds themselves face-to-face with enigmatic Velvet Room residents and are forced to perform at a mysterious dance party, unaware of what lies ahead of them.
Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight features include:
Memorable Soundtrack – Return to the world of Persona 3 and Persona 5 and relive cherished memories with the games’ most memorable songs 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! Unlock a total of 25 fan-favorite tracks in each game.
Dancing! – Choose from several difficulty levels and dance alongside the members of SEES and the legendary Phantom Thieves in a customisable rhythm game experience. Characters can tear up the dance floor with a partner by performing well during a song and entering “Fever” mode; try out some of your favourite character combinations!
English and Japanese Voiceovers – Choose to listen to your favorite characters’ voices in either English or Japanese with dual audio options!
Social – In “Social,” players can connect with their favourite characters and deepen their social bonds through conversations and mini-events. Fulfill character-specific conditions to unlock special events and new items.
Collect Costumes – Collect and equip a variety of costumes and accessories to create an even flashier dance experience.
I’m pretty excited the titles are making their way over early next year. Not that I need another excuse to listen to those incredible soundtrack’s again.
