Minako Kotobuki voices Rise's junior idol in June 25 spin-off rhythm game; DLC with Crazy Pack also unveiled

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 4: The Golden opening theme "Shadow World" by Shihoko Hirata.

Hello! I like my meat salted, moving slow, and sleeping after I eat. I'm the carefree cow, Kanami Mashita! I'm going to dance with a lot of energy!
Kanami: Everyone! Please pray with me for good weather on the day of the Bonds Festival!
Kanami: This outfit sure is tight around my chest... Did I gain weight again...? No, that can't be!
Kanami: Nanako-chan, you can dance now? That is so flippin' amazing.
Kanami: A cursed... video...
Kanami: Whoa! It's Rise-senpai! All right! I've Gotta Dance! I've gotta try everything!
Kanami: There is someone I admired... The reason I started aiming to become an idol was thanks to that person.
Kanami: I've been weird since I was small... And I didn't have many friends. That's why I was so happy to be told that I'm a friend.
Kanami: I'm definitely going to convey this, from the tips of your fingers to the top of your head!
Kanami: With us on the plate, dig in!
Kanami: How was that? Was that good? Or bad? 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:

Persona 3's Gekkōkan Academy uniforms as costumes

Persona 4: The Golden epilogue costumes

"Never More" by Shihoko Hirata extra playable song

The DLC will also be available in the PlayStation Store for purchase some time after the game has been released.

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.
