Persona 4: Dancing All Night Game Modes Detailed, Shown Off in New Screenshots

Releasing this week in Japan, and then this fall in North America, on PlayStation Vita and PlayStation TV, Persona 4: Dancing All Night had its various game modes detailed by Atlus:

Story Mode

All the people who checked the game out at E3 seemed somewhat surprised that there was in fact a story mode (testament, I guess, to the amazingness of the Persona 4 soundtrack and upcoming remixes, etc.). WELL GOOD NEWS, THERE’S A STORY MODE! It’s presented in similar format to Persona 4 Arena/Ultimax’s story mode and will follow the Investigation Team as they solve the mystery behind the Midnight Stage and how it ties in to Rise and her junior group Kanamin Kitchen!

Free Dance Mode

How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Git gud! Free Dance mode is where you can practice the game’s songs to try for that personal high score. Because if you don’t, you fail the song on E3 livestreams in less than 30 seconds and totally embarrass yourself. Seriously, use Free Dance mode to practice and practice a lot. Plus, in Free Dance you can try out the songs with the difficulty, partner, and costume of your choosing.


Tanaka’s Amazing Commodities are back! Here you can purchase character costumes and more with the P$ earned from performing well in the songs.


Music player, character profiles, gallery, high scores and online leaderboards, and more!

Atlus also sent out some new screenshots for the game modes and Costumes:

When Persona 4: Dancing All Night does release in North America this fall, you’ll be able to buy the Disco Fever Edition for $79.99 (USD)/$99.99 (CAD). This includes a 2-disc soundtrack, a full-color Teddie enameled pouch, costume DLC, and a Teddie keychain.
