Are you done saving the world in Persona 5? Have you forged your unbreakable bonds and restored order to the universe? Wonderful. Now it's time to dance.
Earlier today, Atlus announced not one, but two new Persona-themed dancing games. Persona 5: Dancing Star Night is a rhythm game that sets the cast of Persona 5 loose to boogie in the streets of Shibuya and astride recognizable Persona 5 landmarks. The trailer shows the protagonist, Ann, Ryuji, and Makoto busting a move. Yusuke is presumably off trying to locate his lobster so he can have a dancing partner.
Persona 5: Dancing Star Night follows Persona 4: Dancing All Night, another rhythm game that turns Persona characters into dancing machines. The cast of Persona 3 managed to escape with its dignity intact, however – ohhh, wait, no, Atlus doubled-back and now Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night is happening, too. Sorry, guys.
Both Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night are coming to Japanese PlayStation 4 and PS Vita owners in spring of 2018. It's likely the games will be localized for English-speaking audiences, as Persona 5 is a hit outside Japan.
If you'd rather crawl into a hole and die than dance in the streets, fear not – a new Persona Q game is on its way for the Nintendo 3DS. Nothing is known about Persona Q2 just yet, but it's probably another dungeon-crawler in the vein of the first Persona Q. It's also marked for a 2018 release.
With a Persona 5 anime also confirmed to be in the works, it appears Atlus is far from done with the Phantom Thieves. I just want to know when the inevitable upgraded version of Persona 5 drops. My only demand is that it's on the Nintendo Switch. Oh, and same-sex relationships would be nifty, but I guess I shouldn't hold my breath.
