Persona 4: Dancing All Night's Lawson Costumes Previewed in Video
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
HMV Japan began streaming a promotional video that previews the Lawson-themed character costumes for Kanami, Nanako, and Yu in the Persona 4: Dancing All Night PlayStation Vita video game on Wednesday. The costume is based on the blue and white uniforms of Lawson convenience store employees in Japan. The costume is available as a bonus to copies of the game purchased in Loppi or HMV Japan.
Atlus previously previewed a crossdressing DLC set for the characters Yu, Yosuke, and Kanji last week.
The game will debut in Japan on June 25, and first copies will also come bundled with a Blu-ray containing footage from Persona 5. A special "crazy value pack" will ship on the same day, and will contain a collector's box with an original illustration, the PS Vita game, a two-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 will contain 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 it 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.
