Persona Dancing titles will include Velvet Room assistants as playable characters

Dance to the funky drummer, IN-MATE.

Atlus announced in this week’s Famitsu magazine that upcoming rhythm-action games Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night will include each game’s respective Velvet Room assistants as playable characters.

Persona 3’s Elizabeth will host the game’s narrative and will also be playable in some form in Moon Night, while the same can be said for Persona 5’s pint-sized, take-no-shit jailers Caroline and Justine, who will perform similar duties for Star Night.

Little detail was ascertained as to what form these “playable roles” take. For example, are they models in the dance sections of the game, or do players control them in the all-new “Commu” mode? Perhaps we’ll find out more in tomorrow’s live-stream, which is scheduled to broadcast on NicoNico at 19:40 JST.

Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night are set for release in Japan May 24 on PS4 and PS Vita. A box set, which includes Persona 4: Dancing All Night, will also be available. There is still no news on a Western release.
