The two rhythm games are based on the 2014 title Persona 4: Dancing All Night, which was co-developed by DingoThe games themselves featured remixed songs from the parent games where players will have dance battles against shadows. The original dancing game was set one year after the events of Persona 4 – no details on whether this would be case in the two new games have been confirmed.

The Persona series started off in 1996 on the PlayStation as a spin off in the Megami Tensei. Titled Megami Ibunroku Persona, or Revelations: Persona in the west, the game featured a series of high school characters who could summon a persona, a physical representation of their personality. The game received positive reviews and is considered as a hit. Since then, 3 main line games were released and numerous spin offs, re-releases and adaptations. Persona 2 released in 1999 and was made up of two games:Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment. The game was a success in Japan but the game failed to receive good international support. The next game wouldn’t release until 2006 on the PlayStation 2. Persona 3 was a massive hit in both Japan and overseas selling over 500,000 units worldwide. Persona 4 followed the same path of success in 2008. The latest main line title is 2016’s Persona 5, releasing on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 to similar acclaim. with over 1.5 Million copies sold worldwide. The series has also seen numerous spin-offs, adaptations and direct sequels.


The two new rythm Persona spin-off titles, Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5 Dancing Star Night, will both be released on the PS4 and Vita on May 24th in Japan. More details about the title will be revealed at a later date.
