Several days after Atlus announced that it would be producing a Persona 5 anime, the developer also revealed the future release of three new Persona spin offs. Two of the new games will also be quite different from what might be expected, as they will reportedly be rhythm games, so users are encouraged to ‘put on their dancing shoes’ by most.
The three new games were titled Persona Q, Persona 3: Dancing Moon Might, and the Persona 5: Dancing Star Night. Following the report, Atlus also uploaded a teaser site for the couple of dancing titles. It also released trailers for each of two rhythm games.
The Three New Persona Spin Offs are Expected Sometime in Spring 2018
Atlus, the video game developer, revealed the existence of the three new games earlier this week. Currently, the Persona spin offs are still in the works, though the release also revealed some teaser images and trailers which revealed a first look at them.
The Persona 3 and Persona 5 spin off games are also quite differently themed than may have been expected as they will be dancing numbers. They will be developed for the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita. The Persona Q follow up is being created for the Nintendo 3DS.
Persona and the franchise created around it is one of the most popular Japanese RPGs at an international level. The game itself is a spin-off of the Megami Tensei series, which goes as far back as the late 1980s.
Most persona games have a turn-based combat gameplay, with the protagonists having to face against shadows, demons, and the likes. The “Personas” in the title are the manifestation of the character’s psyche.
However, things will be quite different in two of the three new Persona spin offs. The rhythm games appear to be ‘lighter’ in tone than their other namesakes. However, the teaser trailers did not reveal their gameplay, so players may still get a surprise.
The rhythm games are expected to drop sometime in the spring of 2018 in Japan. A western release period has yet to be announced. The Persona Q has yet to receive either a Japanese or western availability date and more details for it are still expected.
