PS4's Persona 3 And Persona 5 Dancing Games Will Support PSVR

All this energy's got us inspired now. We couldn't stop it, just set it free and...daaaaance!

Persona fans have a new reason to be hyped up for the upcoming rhythm game spin-offs; Japan's PlayStation Blog has revealed that both Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night will be PSVR compatible. There were no details as to what exactly the virtual reality portions entail, just an addendum on the blog post saying that these games will support PSVR. All we can really do is use our imagination, and at least hope that we'll get to either stand atop Tartarus as we watch Mitsuru and Akihiko bust their moves, or get down with Morgana and Makoto at Shibuya Crossing.

Persona 3 originally released in 2006 for PlayStation 2, but also had a re-release with Persona 3: FES that added new content. Persona 3 Portable came to PSP in 2010, which added the option to play as a female lead where dialogue, social links, and characters were improved to fit the new protagonist. With the new dancing game, we see the return of our old friends from Gekkoukan High School, but with all new 3D character models in the same vein as Catherine and Persona 5. Many of the songs we know and love are included in the game along with some new tracks and remixes.

The ultra-stylish Persona 5 came to the West last year and featured one of the greatest original soundtracks in games. Series composer Shoji Meguro fused several genres like acid-jazz, metal, and downtempo to create music that was both unique and empowering. It's no surprise that a rhythm game was going to follow; we definitely saw it coming. Plenty of amazing songs from the game make their way into the Dancing Star Night tracklist in addition to new remixes.

Both games will not have a traditional story campaign, but there will be a mode that features original settings and character interactions. However, developer and publisher Atlus hasn't revealed much of the new mode.

Those that buy the "Persona Dancing All-Star Triple Pack" for PS4 will get both new games in addition to a downloadable version of 2015's Persona 4: Dancing All Night, which was previously a PS Vita exclusive.

For more details on both games, you can read our previous article covering the different editions available and what's included, and their full tracklists. Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night are set to release in Japan on May 24 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. There's currently no release date or window for North America and Europe.

Persona 5 stole our hearts here at GameSpot when it released last year; read and watch why this fantastic, heartfelt JRPG took second place in our Top 10 Games Of 2017. If mainline Shin Megami Tensei is more in your wheelhouse, you can get more details on the upcoming Shin Megami Tensei V for Nintendo Switch.

Welp I am sold on the pro order, just a sucker for persona games. Just give me the date for english release! Definitely will buy the ultimate collection that they have for NA.

Do hope P3 female MC gets to play some part in this game. As someone who played the original P3 and p3fes, the female route in p3p is my fav. The social links is so much fun!
