Daisuke Namikawa voices calm leader in June 25 spin-off rhythm game

Atlus began streaming a new promotional video starring the Persona 4 protagonist for its Persona 4: Dancing All Night PlayStation Vita rhythm game on Monday. The video features Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth opening theme "Maze of Life" by Shihoko Hirata and Yumi Kawamura.

Yū: I'll do it. Just watch. I'll convey how wonderful it is to express yourself for sure. Feel my heat!
Yū: They disappeared? The members of the Kanamin Kitchen?
Yū: ...! Did you say Midnight Stage!?
Yū: So that song and the dance of those Shadows is affecting us...!
Yū: We'll definitely save the four members of the Kanamin Kitchen and return to our world.
Yū: Thanks everyone. So, I guess the Special Investigation Team is back together again.
Yū: There's nothing to be gained out of sacrificing someone else. We definitely won't accept that kind of thing!
Yū: Don't hurt anyone. Don't hurt each other. That's the rule of this world, right? That's why we're going to convey it with our dance. If we don't understand, we can just say we don't. If we want something, we can just say that we do. If it's how I am now, I should be able to do something besides fighting!
Yū: Just leave it to me. Start the music!
Yū: OK, I guess that's good. 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 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.
