First, there will be completely new songs, however it is not yet clear if this means songs not in Persona 4: Dancing All Night or tracks that were not in Persona 3 and Persona 5. Gameplay will be similar to Dancing All Night, building upon the foundation set by the series' first rhythm game and refining the core gameplay. In addition, the PS4 versions of the games will run at a smooth 60 FPS. According to Producer Kazuhisa Wada, "Elements that were not in the game's main stories" will be present in the rhythm spin offs.

Both games will replace Story mode with a brand new mode, though details for what it entails are still forthcoming. Confirmed songs for Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night include "Burn My Dread," "Mass Destruction," and "Heartful Cry." Persona 5: Dancing Star Night will include "Wake Up, Get Up, Get Out There," "Last Surprise," and "Life Will Change." All of the Atlus Sound Team will be participating in the projects.

Wada also confirmed that Persona 3 characters will be rendered with realistic proportions for the first time, and each character will have enhanced models and dancing motions compared to what was seen in Persona 4: Dancing All Night.

No international release has been confirmed for either title, though we will keep you posted on upcoming news for both titles.
