Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight

Dancing game featuring characters from Persona 5.

Overview

Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight, also known as Persona 5: Dancing Star Night in Japan, is a rhythm game for the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita. The PS4 version of the game is also compatible with PlayStation VR in a limited manner.

Developed by Atlus' P Studio, and simultaneously released alongside Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight, it is a spiritual successor to 2015's Persona 4: Dancing All Night. The game features the characters and music of Persona 5, with all-new songs and remixes mixed in as well.

Dancers

The game has a total of 16 dancers, six of which are downloadable. Similarly to Persona 4: Dancing All Night, the characters are all locked to their individual song or songs. The number of supporting dancers the player can select for each song has been increased, however.

Each character has their own dancing style that is unique to them: Makoto's years of martial arts training can clearly be seen in her choreography, whereas the twins Caroline and Justine make for quite the dancing pair when they're not busy brutally executing Personas for Fusion purposes.

Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight's playable roster consists of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts, and their partners in crime:

In addendum, more dancers can be bought as downloadable content, once they have been released:

Track List

The soundtrack of Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight is a collaboration between series' main composer, Shoji Meguro, the numerous other music producers of Atlus, and a select few guest composers from Japan's game and music industries.

The song list of Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight features 25 playable songs, and an additional 30 have been confirmed as downloadable content post-launch, bringing the total number of playable songs available for the game to 55.

An overview of the downloadable songs' release schedule and pricing is located below the track list of songs included on the standard version of the game, but the exact details can be found on the games' official websites, and on the PlayStation Store.

Downloadable Songs

Atlus has planned to release a total of 30 new songs as downloadable content, to further support the game after its launch. These songs include the downloadable dancers listed above, as well as playable music videos. The core gameplay remains the same between the two, although the music videos have none of the character customization available to them.

All downloadable dancers and playable music videos are supported by both, and all versions of Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight, and Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight.

This means that even if the player owns both games, one on the Vita, and one on the PS4, and buys Akechi, for example, they can play as him in either game and on either platform, without having to make separate purchases of him for each game.

The release schedule for the Japanese versions of the games can be seen below.
