Atlus announced at the Persona Super Live 2015 in Nihon Budokan that its upcoming Persona 4: Dancing All Night PlayStation Vita rhythm game will be released in Japan on June 25.
The staff also announced that a special "crazy value pack" will be released on the same day, and will contain a collector's box with an original illustration, the PS Vita game, a 2-disc original soundtrack, as well as three pieces of DLC, which will include things like costumes. A "premium crazy box" will be also be released, and the box contains the crazy value pack, as well as a limited edition PlayStation Vita system with a Persona 4: Dancing All Night design.
In addition, a promotional video unveiled three new playable dancers: Yukiko Amagi, Naoto Shirogane, and Nanako Dojima.
The game was originally slated for last fall but was delayed until this year. The website also previously listed Dingo as a developing partner, but now only lists Atlus and Sega.
The story of the game begins half a year after the Inaba City serial murder case was solved and Rise Kujikawa returns to the world of entertainment. As rumors begin spreading that "at midnight, if you see a strange video playing on a certain site, you are transported to the 'other side' and will never wake up again," members of the idol group "Kanamin Kitchen," which includes Rise's underclassman Kanami Mashita (voiced by Minako Kotobuki), are disappearing.
In the game, the "Hero," Rise, Kanami, Yosuke, Chie, Kanji, and other Persona 4 characters engage in a "dance battle" with the Shadows in the mysterious world of 'Mayonaka Stage.'"
Atlus USA confirmed that it will release the game in North America.
