Jared and Anne Ladyem (anneladyem.com) put their dancing shoes on to discuss the 3 Persona dancing games. We talk about the latest releases with Persona 3 Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5 Dancing Star Night and what is new, the basis around the story mode replacement, and how the remixes are. Of course, it wouldn't be something Persona 5 related if Atlus didn't do something incredibly problematic, so we have to discuss that with regard to a certain group dance in the game. We also talk Persona 4 Dancing All Night since that has been given a PS4 port.
