Having just been announced last week, Atlus is already sharing some new info about the upcoming Persona 5: Dancing Star Night and Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night. According to Gematsu, the Weekly Famitsu drops some of the new tidbits about the two games which you can read below:

It’s a bit strange that they’ve decided to replace the story mode as Persona 4: Dancing All Night relied on its visual novel gameplay.

Persona 5: Dancing Star Night and Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night is slated to release sometime next year in Japan for the PS4 and PS Vita. Stay tuned to Twinfinite as we’ll keep you updated with more news along the way.
