Dengeki Online also began streaming a video on Tuesday to announce that the game will also receive a set of special DLC costumes designed by Persona 3 and Persona 4 manga artist Shuji Sogabe. Players can get the costumes by purchasing different Kadokawa magazines.

Players can get the the first set of costumes for the protagonist Yū Narukami and Kuma (Teddie) by purchasing the 593rd issue of Dengeki PlayStation magazine, which Kadokawa published on Thursday.

Players can get the second set of costumes for Naoto, Rise, and Kanji by purchasing the August issue of Dengeki Maoh magazine, which Kadokawa will publish on Saturday.

Players can get the third set of costumes for Yōsuke, Chie, and Yukiko by purchasing the July issue of Persona Magazine, which Kadokawa will publish on Monday.

Atlus confirmed on Tuesday that the game will offer Marie and Tohru Adachi as DLC. Marie and Adachi's DLC will debut on July 30 and August 6, respectively.

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."

The game shipped in three editions: a regular edition, a "Premium Crazy Box" edition, and a "Crazy Value Pack" edition.

The full "Premium Crazy Box" package contains everything in the "Crazy Value Pack" edition of the game: a two-disc soundtrack with all the music in the game, two costume DLC (the Gekkōkan High School Uniform set and the Persona 4 Golden Summer Break set), an additional downloadable track titled "NeverMore" (Persona 4 ending theme), an original illustration by series artist Shigenori Soejima, and a Blu-ray Disc featuring various videos for Persona 5.

The edition also includes a PS Vita unit with an exclusive Persona 4: Dancing All Night-themed sleeve. The PS Vita itself will also come with with a pre-installed menu theme, which includes the remixed track "Signs of Love (Funky HOME Mix)," arranged by Shin Megami Tensei series composer Ryōta Kozuka.

The "Premium Crazy Box" costs 28,980 yen (around US$235), the "Crazy Value Pack" costs 9,980 yen (around US$81), and the regular edition costs 6,980 yen (around US$56).

Atlus USA will release the game in North America this fall with a launch edition and a special edition.
