Dead doorknockers can't dance.

Also why is Aigis dancing ANYTHING but The Robot srlsy Atlus

And if they're seriously doing this then Koromaru MUST dance the Macarena otherwise why do this cash grab at all

I can honestly buy the premise of Persona 3's protagonist being brought back to life with the power of song and dance. P5 on the other hand makes the plot a little too much like Footloose.

Well I dunno about you but I can't wait to see Fuuka "Gasp! The enemy!" Yamagishi get into hip, cool street dance clothes and shades and breakdance spinning on her back and doing handstands

While I never played it, a Persona 4 dancing game bothered me not in the least, what with Rise providing a bridge to having that make some crazy and strained equivalent of sense, and also the overall lighter tone of P4 helping, too...really, just about the most cheerful occult serial murder mystery storyline I could imagine...but a Persona 3 one feels mildly disconcerting to me.

Yeah, P3 had tacky and silly moments, but it had a comparatively dour cast, and in large part due to the power of a really great grand finale I feel it still possessed a dark dignity and thematic integrity that makes this feel like a weeeird fit

Best-case scenario, though, is Shinjiro and Koromaru reenacting this scene:

Dancing Moon Night and Dancing Star Night...

If you run into someone with the other version, can you trade exclusive songs/characters?

Heh, I see it exactly as the other way around. None of the P3 characters strike me as having the personality to just go out and enjoy a night out dancing except Junpei --they're too self-serious, withdrawn, or single-minded in purpose. Or canine. And if it takes place before MaleC* turns into a doorknocker, it... kiiiiiiinda runs contrary to the themes and motifs the original game was trying to convey, like Depford says. And when the original was all about confronting one's mortality and literally fighting Death at the end, what bizarre manifestation of humanity's subconscious ills would even make sense for SEES to dance at?

OTOH, the Persona 5 cast fits even better than the Scoobs, personality-wise. And since their game can take place anywhere, anytime, they're not quite as constrained by the premise. But yeah, rebelling against yet another authority figure with the power of hip hop does look a bit too much like they gotta cut loose, footloose.

(Igor is voiced by John Lithgow, confirmed)

Thing is... even if I swallow my snark and my cynicism and accept these games at face value, Dance Dance Megidolaon already presented a lot of "hip" dance remixes of the P4 soundtrack, and they still sounded too samey compared to one another. The genre of music, and the style of dancing, are already well-explored. If Dance Dance Moon and Star use the exact same styles, what's the point?


* Assuming only MaleC so far, but FemC would absolutely be into this 100% and she'd drag everyone else onto the dance floor even if she had to knock them over the head first. Elizabeth would help.

Default Remember when P4 was about a serial murderer? Well...*busts a move*

My wife bought Dancing All Night but I'm pretty sure she doesn't care enough about the casts of P3 and P5 to buy the same game again.

With the apparent resurrection of P3 protag, I'm fulling expecting Akechi to show up.

I don't have a whole lot of desire for P3 or P5 dancing, but I would totally buy a current gen P4 dancing game, unlock every Chie outfit, then never play it again.

If we're being honest though, I'd be all about a Persona 2 dancing game.

Most of them seem more like dancers.

"There's a rumor that people have started DANCING!"

It's a shame that the first two (actually three, I guess) games have ended up utterly ignored and the series now is really just considered to be 3 and on. I mean, I understand WHY that's the way things shaped up, but it is unfortunate, since Innocent Sin's main cast is probably my favorite of 'em all.

Is there some reason people seem to be sure the P3 protagonist has been resurrected, instead of just that it's a side story within the game?

Is there any information about this other than the trailer that gives people that impression?

Tatsuya's motorcycle noises and Eikichi's singing will finally be put to good use!

Given the winter uniforms, and that it couldn't take place at any other time without further Clockwork God shenanigans, Dance Dance Moonlight takes place during the Bad Ending when the oblivious SEES spend their final evening at the karaoke, when knowing nothing of death, Nyx, the Dark Hour, or Personas, turned MaleC into the expressive, well-adjusted, charming life-of-the-party that burst with energy and party power and danced the night away until the Moon hit him with its eye like a big pizza pie.

Hence the title "Moonlight."

I'm curious to see the animated openings. P4's opening had the best dancing in the entire game.

It is unlikely, though not impossible, that I will end up playing these games, but I am kind of glad they exist.

Anyway, I expect to interact with these the same way I did for the P4 dancing one: rent it, be befuddled/amused by it and return it.

Between Kanji's breakdancing, Yukiko's ridiculous pirouettes, and Naoto vogueing this was such a perfect opener.

I thought the gameplay and visuals of P4AN were pretty fun. Plus the Persona music and character years are way better than Hatsune Miku (in my opinion).

I genuinely liked P4D in general, as bizarre spinoffs go, and for all I'll make fun of these games I expect to enjoy them.
