Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night, the dancing game spin-offs of Japanese RPGs Persona 3 and Persona 5, will be getting some crazy crossover costumes.
The DLCs for the dancing games were revealed at Sega Fes 2018, where Sega made other surprising announcements.
'Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night' And 'Persona 5: Dancing Star Night' Crossover Costumes
Sega recently asked Twitter users which franchises should be featured in the upcoming Persona dancing games as costumes. The choices were Virtua Fighter, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Yakuza.
The Twitter poll, however, turned out to be insignificant, because all three Sega franchises will be featured as costumes for Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night. The characters of Persona 3 will receive Virtua Fighter costumes, while the characters of Persona 5 will receive Yakuza costumes. Meanwhile, Morgana, the talking cat from Persona 5, will receive a Sonic costume.

The costumes will not be free, though, as they will be downloadable content for their respective games. No release date or price has been given for the DLC, along with no confirmation that the costumes will be made available in the Western versions of the Persona dancing games.
Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night will be released in Japan on May 24, exclusive to the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. The games' launch dates for the United States have not yet been revealed, but they will surely also come to the West, especially after the success of Persona 5.
What Else Was Announced At Sega Fes 2018?
There were several other major announcements at Sega Fes 2018, one of which was the unveiling of the Sega Genesis Mini. Not much is known yet about the retro console, but it is expected to function similarly to the massively popular NES Classic Edition and SNES Classic Edition of Nintendo.
The rerelease of Shenmue and Shenmue II was also announced at the annual event. The new versions of the games, which will be sold as Shenmue I & II for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, will come with modern features that include a fully scalable screen resolution and an improved user interface.
Sega also announced Sega Ages, a collection of retro games, for the Nintendo Switch, as well as plans for a new Sakura Wars game.
