'Commu mode' revealed for Persona Dancing Night games


Get your groove on

Atlus have revealed a new mode that will be coming to funk-em-up titles Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night. The "Commu" mode will allow players to interact with their favourite characters to complete "mini-events."

The Commu mode, revealed in Famitsu, appears to be the replacement for Persona 4: Dancing All Night's maligned story mode, and will see the protagonist of each game build social links with some of the other cast members, ultimately unlocking rewards such as in-game costumes and other treats.

As well as this new mode, Atlus also released scant details on the plot for both games. Star Night will see the Phantom Thieves awaken in "Club Velvet," where wardens Justine and Caroline ("IN-MATE") are throwing a dance party, which the thieves have little choice but to partake in. Moon Night, however, features an entirely different storyline, which sees the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad gather in "Club Velvet," where Elizabeth is throwing a dance party, which the squad have little choice but to partake in.

The Famitsu article also featured some hip new screenshots, featuring Yusuke, Mitsuru, Akihiko and Morgana. But you're too tired to look at those screenshots, and should go to bed.

Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night launch on PS4 and PS Vita in Japan on May 24.
