NIS America, the European distributor for Atlus, have announced a European release date for Persona 4: Dancing All Night. The game will be released on November 6th for Europe, and September 29th for North America. To accompany the news, AtlusUSA have released a healthy dose of Persona 4’s Naoto Shirogane, which is always more than welcome:
The rythmn dance game will release on the PSVita in Europe with a limited “Disco Fever” EU edition which includes:
“Two Discs Chock Full of Persona 4 Music Remixes: Hear the full Persona 4: Dancing All Night soundtrack in all its glory! The remixed tracks put a new spin on the incredible music from Persona 4.”
“Last Night a Vita Pouch Saved My Life: Protect your PS Vita in this custom P4D enameled pouch with a full color P4D design featuring Teddie in all his Elvis-esque jumpsuit glory on one side, and an embossed version of the P4D logo on the reverse.”
“All About that Bear: Never lose your keys or whatever else again with a golden Teddie keychain.”
“The Whole Package: All the items will come in a large collectible box with custom disco ball art (based on the Japanese Crazy Value Pack version of P4D).”
“Cover Band: Preserve the sanctity of the PS Vita’s display with a form-fitting skin to show off the very essence of P4D! (The skin is designed to fit the most recent model of PS Vita).”
Persona 4 Dancing All Night, for the uninformed, is the surprising spinoff game about everyone’s favorite gang of magic-wielding crime-solvers from Persona 4. Inexplicably canon, the game features the Investigation Team solving the disappearance of an Idol group, Kanamin Kitchen, who have apparently gone missing into a magical website called the Midnight Stage which is oddly reminiscent of Persona 4’s Midnight Channel. It’s up to Yu Narukami and the gang to bust out their fanciest footwork to save the day.
If this bizarrely upbeat entry to the Persona franchise is a little too chipper for your taste, Atlus has also confirmed that the somewhat more sensible Persona 5 will be releasing in 2015 as planned. Atlus also mentioned that if Persona 4 Dancing All Night sells well enough, they may consider a Persona 3 Dancing game if Persona 4 Dancing All Night sells well enough.
So if, like me, you want to see Junpei Iori popping and locking to a remix of Mass Destruction, then make sure to pick up a copy of Persona 4 Dancing All Night on September 29th (NA) or November 6th (EU).
