"Persona Dancing P3D & P5D" CD soundtrack ships via CDJapan

Retailer CDJapan is shipping the physical release of the "Persona Dancing P3D & P5D" soundtrack album.

Pressed to two compact discs by publisher Victor Entertainment, the soundtrack includes music from PlayStation 4 and PS Vita rhythm titles Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight. Both installments in developer Atlus' Persona dancing series incorporate VR mode for viewing individual character models and their dance moves.

The Dancing titles are one example of the Persona franchise's current-gen convention of spinning off non-canonical sequels that explore different gameplay genres. Others include sprite-based fighting game Persona 4 Arena and the forthcoming Musou-style hack-and-slash Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers. As with the storyline of the portable Persona Q series, all the characters' memories of the Persona Dancing tournaments are erased upon completion of the game, rendering the events essentially imaginary.

Source compositions from the Persona series are by Shoji Meguro, Ryota Kozuka and Atsushi Kitajoh. Game composers arranging songs from Persona 3 include Hideki Naganuma (Jet Set Radio), Yuu Miyake (Katamari Damacy) and Toshiki Konishi (Shin Megami Tensei IV). Vocals are by Yumi Kawamura, Lotus Juice, Shihoko Hirata, Tomoko Komiya and Lyn.

The digital edition of the previously released Persona 4: Dancing All Night soundtrack is streaming through Spotify in Japan.
