Open the door, Get on the floor…
One day, I’m gonna be shuffling off this mortal coil. When that day comes, I think all anyone is going to remember of me is a never-ending deluge of posts, spread over two years about releases, localisations, DLC and characters pertaining to Persona Q2, Persona Dancing and the Persona brand in general. There are worse legacies, I suppose.
Still, at least we got a good one here, as Atlus has dropped funky new trailers to get the dance floor rocking for Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight and Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight, which arrive in the west this December on PS4 and Vita.
The Starlight trailer introduces us to the heart-stealing Phantom Thieves, heroes of super-cool and way-too-padded RPG Persona 5. The gang’s all here, with “PROTAGONIST” supported by the hot-headed Ryuji, the artistic Yusuke, supposed Best Girl Futaba, actual Best Girl Makoto, alongside classy heiress Haru, endless exposition cat Morgana and last, but certainly not least, the cheerful Lady Ann.
The Moonlight trailer features the somewhat more muted, but equally slick cast of PS2 classic Persona 3. The male iteration of hero is first to step up 2 tha streets, followed by bodyguard-robo Aigis, Best Persona Girl Period Mitsuru, dapper fighter Akihiko, cherubic Ken Amada and the smart, well-balanced Yukari. The timid Fuuka is juxtaposed with the loud and brash Junpei, rounding out the Specialized Extracurricular Execution Squad.
This great ensemble cast will take to the dance floor to cut a rug on a selection of soundtrack remixes, adorned in all sorts of cool, slick and silly outfits. Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight and Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight launch on PS4 and PS Vita December 4. An Endless Night Collection is also available, which includes both games and previous release Persona 4: Dancing All Night. Whaddya say? Let’s boogie.
