Atlus began streaming a new promotional video starring Rise Kujikawa for its Persona 4: Dancing All Night PlayStation Vita rhythm game on Monday. The video features Persona 4 opening theme "Pursuing My True Self" by Shihoko Hirata.

Rise: Let's get this party started! Don't be late! I'll make you my captive.
Rise: Dance isn't just something for making a rhythm. You should just put your feelings on the beat and move as you feel.
Rise: Just what is that world? The name "Mayonaka Stage" (Midnight Stage) also gets me wondering.
Rise: What you have isn't bonds! It's just brain-washing!
Rise: We're gonna set EVERYONE free!
Rise: I'll convey it to you. Here we go.
Rise: Us idols aren't dolls! We're going to convey all of our feelings to that person. I'll show that person everything of what I've done up until now.
Rise: There's now way you can form bonds with people if they don't know your true self! Here we go!
Rise: I'm going to specially show you Risechi's revival show!
Rise: Mic check~ How's the sound level? Persona 4: Dancing All Night!

The game will be released in Japan on June 25, and first copies will come bundled with a Blu-ray containing footage from Persona 5. 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.

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, Yukiko, Naoto, Nanako, and other Persona 4 characers 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.
