  Had so much fun with P4DAN so both P3 & P5 will be mine.

  Got the double pack preordered, which comes with a PS4 port of Dancing All Night.

  A couple of friends got the Japanese version for vita: it’s really unnecessary milking of the franchise imho (and two games at that) but it’s a good game. Will get P3D when it goes on sale or something because I liked its music and the characters more.

  @ShogunRok did you play it in VR at all?

  @ShogunRok Is there going to be a vita version available in the west? I keep seeing ‘vita’ in the ads, but can’t find any kind of listing for a vita release.

  @ShogunRok Thanks for the 2 reviews. Hyped for these games. A great break between RDR 2 sessions. I have preordered the endless night collection for the vr mode and bonus P4 DAN download. Still disapointed about the lack of a physical release for vita.

  As for my questions:

  1. Do the ps4 and vita versions share a trophy list

  2. Did you try the vr mode. Is it a worthwhile addition.

  3. How obvious is the fact that lots of additional tracks will be coming down the line as dlc. P4 DAN had quite a few dlc songs and they were not cheap to buy! Is the content in the main release lacking?

  4. Are there a good number of social scenes? Im personally disapointed there isnt a proper story mode, but will be happy enough if there is plenty of content via the

  Social system

  Thanks again for the review

  @Rob_230 Thanks! Great news – this is definitely one I’m more likely to play on a handheld. Took me a year and a half to get around to actual Persona 5 for the same reason, which seems dumb in retrospect.

  @Rob_230 I’d rather a lump of coal.

  (I actually liked the Persona 4 dancing game.)

  Yes, it is a serious question, since I’m getting very insecure about buying anime’ish games due to Sony’s censorship measurements lately. So: Is there any kind of gameplay-influencing censorship involved in both dancing games like removed costumes or trophies?

  @turntSNACO No i get you. Lengthy RPGs are much better on handheld these days. You can just fit it around a busy schedule. I ploughed so many hours into Persona 4 that way.

  I agree with you on the dancing games too. @shogunRok talks about difficulty in his review. I found that difficulty increased on Persona 4 Dancing all night when i played on the pstv. Its easier to see when to hit the notes on a small screen like the vita. On a big tv where you need to scan further across the screen, things get trickier. Particularly on tougher difficulties.

  I probably will double dip for these tbh. The vita seems like their natural home.

  I might have to get this. Haven’t played a rhythm game since Pa Rapper was released on PS4.

  @MightyDemon82 Nah, I don’t have a VR headset sadly. I’m sure there’ll be impressions out there somewhere, although to be totally honest, I’m not even sure what the VR stuff is.

  @Rob_230 Thanks for reading, I’ll try to answer your questions:

  1. Not sure about the Trophy list as the Trophies themselves aren’t viewable on PSN yet.

  2. Haven’t tried VR as I don’t have a headset, unfortunately.

  3. I thought the track listings on each game were really well rounded and got the job done. I didn’t ever feel like there was a lack of content, or blatant room for DLC.

  4. Yep, plenty of social scenes. You start out with 5 for each character but you unlock more. I thought the balance was just right between dancing and then taking a break to check out the social stuff.

  @ShogunRok Will anything be spoiled if you couldn’t finish the last few events in a social link? (Not for the main party, but side-characters)

  And nice review, I’m excited to pick this up.

  @Jaz007 Nah, there are no side characters in this, just the party.

  @MightyDemon82 @Rob_230 @ShogunRok

  Reading VR impressions for this game elsewhere, it appears to be a tacked on feature. There is little to no gameplay. You just listen to the music and watch the party dance.

  @lacerz Yeah that sounds about right, a few games have done that just so they can get the “VR Compatible” sticker on the box.

  @lacerz yeah i suspected that was the case. Cant imagine i will go to the hassle of getting VR out just for that

  I’m wondering when I’ll have the time to do a 3rd playthrough of Persona 5. Starting to miss it along with its text upon text upon text.

  I was never too impressed with the actual gameplay of these games, but DANG is everything else about them just amazing.

  That said, I’m not sure I can go back to any rhythm game after Beat Saber…

  @Fight_Teza_Fight Though the part I’m pissed is you don’t get the DLC content. You have to buy it all again. Even if you have the Vita dlc.
