P5D 3

ATLUS USA has revealed that Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight will launch in North America and Europe in early 2019 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.

In a surprise announcement just ahead of E3 2018, ATLUS USA has revealed that fans in the West can prepare for more Persona related fun in 2019. The publisher has revealed that not one, but two, rhythm games will be launching for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in Early 2019. Fans of Persona 4: Dancing All Night will have a chance to rejoice as they dance under the moon with Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and under the light of the stars with Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight.

As fans may have already concluded, both games will star casts from their respective titles and each one is suiting up to dance the night away. The announcement comes only a month after both games launched in Japan back in May and both have been highly well received by Japanese fans of the franchise.



Both games will feature familiar characters, situations, and music from each of the respective games. In the games, players will be whisked away to the mysterious Club Velvet once again. Once there, they will once more join the Specialist Extracurricular Execution Squad (SEES) and the Phantom Thieves as they take on rather familiar forces in a strange and magic dance party.

ATLUS has confirmed that both games will include soundtracks from their respective titles, but also remixes by ATOLS, Lotus Juice, Taku Takahashi and Jazztronik. Both games will include several difficulty levels, a partnered dance mod, and plenty more for you to enjoy as you customize your experience with the games by changing out costumes and accessories of your characters. The games will be available in Japanese or English, with subtitles for French, German, Italian, and Spanish.

For those attending E3 2018, you can visit the ATLUS/SEGA booth at Hall H Booth #5222 from June 12 to 14 in order to play the demo’s of both respective titles ahead of their 2019 launches.
