Atlus began streaming a new promotional video starring the Persona 4 character Yukiko Amagi for its Persona 4: Dancing All Night PlayStation Vita rhythm game on Friday. The video features a remix of the Persona 4 in-game song "Heartbeat, Heartbreak" by Shihoko Hirata.

Yukiko: I'll show you I can do both inn owner training and dance! Yukiko Amagi is starting now!
Yukiko: It sounds kind of interesting, conveying feelings through dance...
Yukiko: It's OK, there are people who will be saved through that. If we have the ability to do it, I think it's better than not trying.
Yukiko: She really is amazing. ...I wonder what her sizes are like...
Yukiko: Rise and the others really became adults somewhere along the way, huh?
Yukiko: I can't think that this is the power of a human... Ah, wait, the criminal isn't a human, but an alien. Right.
Yukiko: It really did end up like this... But... We definitely can't just run away now!
Yukiko: I'll make sure to deliver these feelings to you, too!
Yukiko: Because I was relied on by everyone, I felt like I had to respond to that. But... even though it was completely different from my own feelings, I feel sad knowing I'd disappoint those around me. In those kind of moments, everyone wavers, worries, and suffers. But in the end, I'm myself. Even if I lie, there won't be anything good. I know now that I'm so much happier having people understand that this is me. You should just convey your true self, just as you are!
Yukiko: Let's dance together!
Yukiko: Oh, so, this is completely changing topics, but lately I've been working hard at cooking. 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.
