Atlus announced today that Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight are coming to the West in Early 2019 for PS4 and Vita, after an exclusive initial release in Japan. The games will feature dual audio, along with subtitles in English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.
Details regarding the costumes DLC already available in Japan and the retail editions are yet to be announced, but Sarah Wellock from the Atlus European PR team revealed some information on Twitter earlier today. There will be demos of both games during E3 2018, the Vita version will be only digital as physical production of Vita cartridges has ended, and that details about retail/bundle editions will be announced very soon.

Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight
In case you weren’t aware of these spin-offs, they started with Persona 4: Dancing All Night back in 2015 for Vita. A year after Persona 5’s release on this part of the world, both new entries in the dancing series were announced, and were recently launched in Japan on May.
There’s one thing, though. In the limited edition that included both games, the spin-off for Persona 4 was also included as a exclusive game only available for owners of that bundle, presenting a port for PlayStation 4 as well. It’s uncertain whether it will be included in the West edition as well, but it’s only a matter of time.
Both games include dozens of songs from the original Persona 3 and Persona 5 by Shoji Meguro, composed by Ryota Kozuka, as well as all-new remixes by ATOLS, Lotus Juice, ☆Taku Takahashi (m-flo / block.fm), Jazztronik, and more. While players will only start with a default amount of songs, more tracks will be unlocked as they progress through the game. Unlike Persona 4’s Dancing game, there isn’t a spin-off story, but there are tons of social interactions between the characters that, along with insight and references to the main games, will reward the player with new customization items, from costumes to accessories.
Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight will release on PS4 and Vita in May 2019, and while there isn’t much information yet, make sure to visit the official site for the West editions.
