[Rumor] New Persona Dancing Game to Also Be Announced Soon, Official Domain Updated

It was discovered yesterday that the Atlus registered domain for a Persona Q sequel had been updated, with its nameservers being moved to Atlus ones instead of the default Onamae ones.

Today, on July 28, 2017, the same happened to the previously registered domain “PERSONA-DANCE.JP,” hinting at a potential sequel to the dancing game spin-off Persona 4: Dancing All Night, originally released for the PS Vita in 2015.

Like the “PQ2.JP” domain as of now, the website currently returns an HTTP 403 Forbidden status, so public access to the site has been prevented.

“PERSONA-DANCE.COM” has also been updated as of July 27th, leading to Atlus nameservers on an unconfigured server, so the site cannot be reached at all.

Previous Indications of a New Persona Dancing Game

There have been hints in the past regarding the possibility of a new Persona dancing game, leading to the possible upcoming announcement now:

June 23, 2015

During the Persona 4: Dancing All Night launch event, producer and director Kazuhisa Wada stated that Atlus would look into making a Persona 3 Dancing game if P4D performed well.

January 13, 2016

In the beginning of 2016, Dengeki PlayStation released an interview with numerous Japanese developers about their outlook on 2016. Persona 4: Dancing All Night producer and director Kazuhisa Wada stated that, while gathering feedback, he would be in preparation for his next title. Wada stated the same at the end of 2016.

February 24, 2016

Two of the questions in the February 2016 Atlus consumer survey were about Persona 4: Dancing All Night.

The first (Q15) showed off screenshots and asked respondents how they felt about them. The second (Q18) asked about how those who played the game felt about the balance between story and gameplay.

February 1, 2017

DJ Taku Takahashi stated, in an interview with The FADER, that one of the projects he had worked on in 2017 was remixing music for Persona 5, which he speculated could appear in a future title. Persona 4: Dancing All Night featured many Persona music remixes from different Japanese artists.

This statement was removed from the official interview shortly after the Persona Central post was published on February 25, 2017.

February 3, 2017

In the February 2017 Atlus consumer survey, a question asking fans potential Persona titles they would be interested in (Q53) listed two different Persona Dancing games fans could vote for: “Persona 5 Dance Game” and “Persona 3 Dance Game.”

March 6, 2017

In a new Atlus employee 2017 interview featuring all three of the company’s production studios, the P Studio representative “S. A” worked on the design of DLC costumes in Persona 5, which would presumably include the Persona 4: Dancing All Night costumes.

She then teased that she was working on designs of costumes worn by characters in a new game that would evoke their personalities and highlight their features, and that the designs would surprise players.

April 18, 2017

Atlus registered several Persona related domains, which included “P5D.JP,” “P3D.JP,” “PERSONA-DANCE.JP,” and “PERSONA-DANCE.COM.”

May 8, 2017

The upcoming Persona live concert is given the name: “Persona Super Live P-Sound Bomb!!!! 2017: Witness the Harbor’s Crime.” In its Japanese marketing, Persona 4: Dancing All Night was commonly labeled a “P Sound Action” game.

June 21, 2017

It was revealed that, at the upcoming Persona Super Live concert, the dancers would consist of 10 people who performed the motion capture performances for characters in Persona 4: Dancing All Night.

    I wish is was a P3 remake in the p5 engine

    • Kahntrast

      P1 remake would be nice.

    • BabyMagnum

      So you want another game added onto the 20 others that are related to Persona 3?

      It would do nothing but bring out the Ken haters again. Now if you mean a Persona 3 remake with P3P then ok.

      • Carlos Hernadez Rios

        No ? Fes is better P3P would bring the losers that want a femaleMC

        • BabyMagnum

          I love FES but the biggest issue I had was the Ken haters. They are on par mentally unsound.

          If there was a P3 remake I would like social links to both Ken and Akihiko and to fix things in the game such as unable to control your partners or better AI.

          Most people are not really clear and mention these issues

  • Bara Dood

    Please just a sequel of P4D (with the same cast of P4) and not a new one with P5 cast….

    • Kahntrast

      P4 needs to die already.

      • Darku Scarlet

        Seriously. I liked P4 but fuck off, it’s been 8 years and been milked to death already.

    • ar4757

      P4D plot was already trash, a sequel would reach a new low

      • Baron Krause

        The game was amazing, your taste is trash.

        • ar4757

          P4D was fun, but the story made Arena’s look good

          • Cannibal Robot

            I don’t know about that. Arena (Ultimax) is my trigger word, seeing as it basically shat on the cast of Persona 3. I’d rather have a thousand dancing games than go through that again.

  • Nicholas

    I want a persona game like DC Vs Mortal Kombat but P3 Vs P4 Vs P5 and you get to choose which side you help or play as

  • Rashad Zhafran

    on ps4 please,

  • Lucas Vinicius

    Pls make them for PS4

  • nooooooooo

  • ER_Mac3

    Alright, still waiting for a miraculous P5 Arena. Pls, Atlus. Pls.
