Phantasy Star Online 2 will be getting Persona Dancing crossover items

Because now every game, legally, has to crossover with Persona

Only yesterday we reported that costumes related to Virtua Fighter, Yakuza and Sonic the Hedgehog were coming to Atlus’ Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night games. Now it seems the Phantasy Star Online 2 will be receiving some Persona items of its own.

Announced this weekend as part of Sega’s Fes 2018 event, the Japanese MMORPG will receive a bundle of fun accessories based on the rhythm-action games. These include character avatars, new clothing items and, of course, a whole new set of dancing emojis, so your player avatar can throw shapes in the lobby with other like-minded players.

Clearly the outstanding success of last year’s Persona 5 has had a huge influence on Atlus and Sega, who are pushing these spin-offs to the moon with en masse trailers, endless live streams and crossover campaigns. Surely a Western release for Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night is all but confirmed by this point.

As for a Western release for Phantasy Star Online 2… that, sadly, remains the stuff of a madman’s dream.
