Title Summary: For all Persona spin-offs, this thread will hold the information as well as past Persona games and spin-off games except Persona 5 which has its own separate discussion. Game Information
Atlus announced games titled Persona 3 Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5 Dancing Star Night at an event in Yokohama Arena on Wednesday. In addition, it announced a game tentatively titled Persona Q2.
The new "dancing" games are slated to launch on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in spring 2018. Atlus opened a teaser website for both games, revealing trailers for each. The Persona 3 Dancing Moon Night trailer features the Persona 3 protagonist, Junpei, Yukari, and Aigis.
The Persona 5 Dancing Star Night trailer features the Persona 5 protagonist, Ryuji, Ann, and Makoto.
The Persona 4: Dancing All Night game shipped in Japan in June 2015. Atlus USA released the PlayStation Vita game in North America in September 2015 and NIS America released the game in Europe in November 2015. In the game, Persona 4 characters engage in a "dance battle" with the Shadows in the mysterious world of "Mayonaka Stage."
Late news on my end. I add the new videos to the opening post
Date confirmed: May 24, 2018 for both Persona 3 Dancing Moon Night and 5 Dancing Star Night
There is a bundle release info if you get them all together
Atlus will release both games separately but will also offer combo releases. The "Persona Dancin' Allstar Triple Pack" for PlayStation 4 will include both games along with a digital download of Persona 4: Dancing All Night, and the "Persona Dancin' Deluxe Twin Plus" for PlayStation Vita will include both games and DLC costumes from other Atlus games. Both packs will include a full soundtrack and package art by series character designer Shigenori Soejima.
Taka if any Persona girl deserves to wear the bikini armor it's Mitsuru. Without a doubt the most attractive girl (imo) in the Persona series and a strong party member as well... provided she doesn't constantly cast Marin Karin and Tentarafoo all the time lol.
Labrys and Sho Minazuki are from the Persona 4 Arena fighting games. It's weird because they are not Persona 3 or Persona 4 exclusive characters as that fighting game was spin-off collab between Persona 3 and 4.
These two have more connection to Persona 3's story but their events take place after Persona 4.
This is my last post for tonight. I have to go to bed for work tomorrow morning.
There is a new game, a sequel to Persona Q.
Atlus began steaming a teaser video revealing details on its Persona Q2 game on Sunday. The video reveals that the game's full title is Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth and it will ship for Nintendo 3DS on November 29 in Japan.
The video also reveals that the game will feature characters from Persona 3, Persona 4, and Persona 5. The game will add the female protagonist from Persona 3 Portable to appear alongside the male protagonist.
Hmm I really enjoyed P3-P5 but I never played the first PQ even though I do own a 3DS. Anyone know if the game is any good?
Persona Q is fan fiction when it comes to romance. It's pretty much fan service for the crossover when you go into the humor and character interaction dialogue. Since they are chibi characers, their quirks are overexaggerated for the humor. The story may seem wacky in nature. but the first Persona Q game can be a bit deceiving without spoilers. If you played Etrian Odyssey, the game play mechanic is very similar to that game. You make your own map as you progress through the dungeon. There are dungeon puzzles.
Bit unusual but I think they might be cutting budget
There will be no English voice over work
After being rated by the Australian Classification Board last month, it was yesterday confirmed Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth would be released on the 3DS in both North America and Europe later this year.
If you want to find out more information about this title, check out the existing article. One other rather important detail we’ve found out about the game since is regarding the voice overs. In a statement to IGN, an Atlus representative confirmed the western release would include a Japanese voice track and English subtitles. Here’s the full statement:
Persona Q2 New Cinema Labyrinth’s localized release will be available exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS with a Japanese voice track and English subtitles. There are no plans to add an English dub to the game at this time.
This is unfortunate to hear considering past localised entries in the series have included English voice work - including the original Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth. It is also hard to say why Atlus has not added English voice overs, but perhaps it is to do with cost-cutting.
Taka: As for anime business, I'll work on the Spring 2020 anime stuff this weekend. I will finish up the Winter 2020 banners. My apologies. I thought I will out of work due to the virus outbreak. I'm glad I'm still working at the pharmacy

Dream: Looks like California and New York are now enforcing all non-essential workers to stay home, except for necessary needs and all public gatherings are banned, at least in New York. New York's are in effect Sunday.
Mar 20, 2020 16:16:17 GMT
Dream: Far as essential workers go, the following are in the category to my knowledge: retail, pharmacies, warehouses, food suppliers, medical offices, transport, emergency personnel, banks, media. May be some differences in what is considered essential...
Mar 20, 2020 17:27:04 GMT
Dream: ...dependent on state or localities. But basically, anything that is a major need for everyday living is considered essential.

Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:24 GMT
Dream: ...to the 2000s series.
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:30 GMT
Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.
Mar 22, 2020 0:33:35 GMT
Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.
Mar 22, 2020 16:44:54 GMT
Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.
Mar 22, 2020 21:25:15 GMT
Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.

Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.
Mar 27, 2020 17:48:40 GMT
Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.
Mar 29, 2020 0:47:15 GMT
CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.

El_Directo: Stay safe guys
Mar 29, 2020 20:08:55 GMT
Taka: I think the only thing not closed for mass gathering other than essential services would be funerals in my area. The mayor and staff have been pretty busy in clarifying things in press releases. Edit: my mistake. Funerals are closed.
Mar 29, 2020 21:52:25 GMT
Dream: Gonna try whipping up a review for Dorohedoro at some point tomorrow. Find that I have quite a bit to cover with the series.
