New Persona Dancing trailers showcase Ryuji and Yukari


Okay smartie, go to a party...

Atlus are starting a series of character trailers to build hype for upcoming rhythm-action titles Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night, coming to the PS4 and PS Vita in Japan.

The first two trailers in the series feature P5's hot-headed track star Ryuji Sakamoto and P3's cheerful archer Yukari Takeba, busting a move. I'm always impressed with the slick movement in these games, and Ryuji's artwork absolutely nails the "point downward with two fingers" stance that white guys love to take when Doing the Hip-Hop.

Both characters hook up with a buddy during their respective videos, with emotional artist Yusuke joining Ryuji on the dance floor, whilst Fuuka teams up with Yukari to trip the light fantastic.

Persona 3 Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night are scheduled for launch in Japan on May 24, for PS4 and PS Vita. There is yet to be any announcement of a Western localisation.
