Persona 3 & Persona 5 Rhythm Games Tracklist Revealed

When it comes to the roster of incredible games slated for release in 2018, there’s none that I’m more excited for than Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night. The ATLUS produced Persona series has been a long-standing part of my gaming history — as it has for many — but thinking back on it, there’s perhaps no entry that stood out more to me than the 2015-released Persona 4: Dancing All Night. That’s why when ATLUS announced two more entries into the rhythm game-infused spinoff series, I couldn’t help but be excited.

Set to release on both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita on May 24, 2018, both Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night have finally had their tracklisting revealed, and it’s an absolute adventure. We’ll take a look at Persona 3 tracks first, then we’ll jump over to the more recent Persona 5 tracklisting.

When I said I was excited about these upcoming games, I don’t think I accurately expressed just how ecstatic I am to jam out to some of these remixes. It’s no joke when I say there was a thud to the sound of my jaw hitting the ground to the tune of Hideki Naganuma’s “When The Moon’s Reaching Out Stars”  remix, or even the likes of Yuyoyuppe remixing Brand New Days.” There’s a lot of different artists here, each crafting a very different soundscape, something I can’t wait to hear for myself.

Sorry, Persona 3, I’ll always love you; though Persona 5 absolutely has you beat on this one in my books. Calling on some of my all-time favorite musicians including both Tofubeats and Taku Takahashi, there’s so much that ATLUS have done right on this one. The lineup is absolutely stacked, and it offers such an incredible opportunity to enjoy what is an already incredible soundtrack once more, from a different perspective. If the story is as good as what I’m imagining the music will be, this will absolutely be one incredible release.

Speaking of that Taku Takahashi remix of “Last Surprise,” we reached out for a word from the musician regarding his thoughts on the creation of the remix. Those words can be found below:

I was originally asked to create a remix of the song, which I realised it had some pretty incredible vocals and strings. That being said, I couldn’t help but want to change the feeling of it a little. I put some classic UK Garage — or maybe it’d be JP Garage now — twists on it, all while mashing in my signature chopped sampling, something that’s been a staple of mine since the early m-flo days.

All in all, I couldn’t be any more excited about the upcoming entries into the Persona series of games. With a wildly-enjoyable rhythm game as its outer layer, and the always-thoughtful Persona game at its core, there’s a lot of reasons why you should also start getting excited.
