P3D & P5D Demo Trailer
Hit the dance floor with Persona 3’s SEES and Persona 5’s Phantom Thieves in a free PS4 demo for each game before their release on December 4. Available now, each games’ demo features four pulse-pounding songs from the full versions!
Additionally, digital pre-orders for each individual title on PlayStation 4, as well as the Persona Dancing: Endless Night Collection, are open today on the North American PSN Store. Those who pre-order the digital versions will still receive the same pre-order bonuses as the physical versions. Shinjiro Aragaki will be available in Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight with the final boss theme of Persona 3,”Battle Hymn of the Soul,” and in Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight, Goro Akechi will come with the Persona awakening theme of Persona 5,”Will Power.” All digital pre-orders of the Persona Endless Night Collection will grant both characters and theme songs on the game’s launch on December 4. Both Akechi and Shinjiro, as well as both of their songs, can be used interchangeably in either P3D or P5D.
For European fans, digital pre-orders will not be available for P3D, P5D, or the Endless Night Collection. However, any digital purchases of the game(s) within two weeks of launch will provide the same bonuses as the digital pre-orders described above. This applies to both the PS4 and Vita versions of the games. Also, EU fans will be able to get their dancing shoes on in the P3D/P5D demos on December 11*!
*Release date for P3D/P5D in EU is still set for December 4, 2018.
