As of this writing no English trailer has been provided for Persona 4: Dancing All Night, but the Vita’s rhythm based spin-off has been confirmed to be released in 2015.

Finally, Persona 5 has been confirmed for western release. This is the first mainline Persona game since Persona 4’s release on PS2 way back in 2008. Little is known about the upcoming title, except that it will be released exclusively on PlayStation 3 sometime in 2015.
