If you need more Persona in your life (the answer is always yes, by the way), there are two Persona rhythm games coming in one bundle on December 4th. Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight will each have 25 songs and remixes from their respective games. The remixes are from ATOLS, Lotus Juice, Taku Takahashi, Jazztronik, and other people I’m not cool enough to recognize. The music for the songs is a great foundation, so I wouldn’t worry about the remixes.
Since dancing is in the title, you have an idea of the gameplay. As your toes are tapping, your favorite characters are dancing on the screen. You can partner them with other characters if you are master of the dance floor and unlock Fever Mode. There are multiple difficulties here, so gamers from a variety of skill levels shouldn’t be intimidated.
There are a couple of other nice salutes to fans. You can play the game with English or Japanese voice over tracks. It may seem small, but it keeps my version of the characters consistent. There is also a Social mode that let’s you talk to characters and unlock more items. Could it be a Persona game without deepening those relationships?
If you buy the bundle physically, you will receive a code for Persona 4: Dancing All Night. It is the only way to get this game on the PS4. (I think they are missing out on sales, but what do I know?) The games will be available digitally on the PS4 and only digitally PS Vita. Europe will pay £89.99 for the PS4 version and £69.99 for the PS Vita version. North America will pay $99.99 for the PS4 version. I don’t see a price for the PS Vita version, but, based on the price bands, I would expect to pay $79.99.
The Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight Bundle will be available on December 4th.
Press Release from Atlus Games
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
