Persona Q 2 also teased
We all knew this was coming. Persona 4 got two fighting games, a dancing game, and a crossover spinoff in the years since its initial Playstation 2 release way back in 2008. Now, some of those same spinoff money-grabbers have come to pass again, though perhaps not exactly as one might expect. Persona 5 was announced today to be getting its own stylish rhythm game spinoff, in the form of Persona 5: Dancing Star Night. But it seems that the game’s elder cousin and the first PS2 series entry could not be ignored any longer. Persona 3 is stepping into the ring as well, in the form of Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night. No, not like the Marvel character.
Both games are being developed by Atlus and P Studio. They’ll both be headed to Playstation 4 and Vita in Spring 2018 in Japan, with US release dates likely soon to follow. In both trailers, we see a whole slew of characters from both titles getting down to signature soundtrack remixes, just liek Persona 4: Dancing All Night ingrained it in us to expect.
But wait, those less interested in the art of the dance: there’s more! Atlus also left fans a teaser of another spinoff making a return. Persona Q 2 has been officially teased for a release sometime in 2018.
Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth was a Persona 3/Persona 4 crossover RPG on the 3DS. The game was co-developed by team members responsible for the Etrian Odyssey games, a dungeon crawler RPG series heavily focused around mapping out ones path as they proceed through randomly-generated dungeons. The characters and systems melded together beautifully, and gained the game positive critical reception when it released in late 2014. It is not yet known whether characters from Persona 5 will join the same full cast of both other games as before, but it’s likely we’ll be getting some answers soon.
