Released last month in Japan to strong sales (and a strong review from Heath), Atlus announced that Persona 4: Dancing All Night is coming to PlayStation Vita in North America on September 29. A European release is scheduled for Fall 2015.
In a pair of character trailers, Atlus showed off Kanami and Teddie:
This time, Rise’s junior takes center stage! Kanami Mashita is the leader of Kanamin Kitchen and ready to get down in P4D! But just like Rise before her, you may start to get the impression that just because you’re a super popular idol, doesn’t mean life is any easier. Kanami is a brand new character (ok, she was mentioned in Persona 4, but never shown), but she’s an important part of the game’s story mode! Oh, and if you’re wondering why she calls herself a prize cow with marbled meat, Kanamin Kitchen’s Idol gimmick is that they all represent types of meat. But you’ll find out more about that in Story Mode!
You can rest assured that no matter how grizzly the situation or what dangers may come to bear, when there’s idols in need of rescue, Teddie will be there! The Midnight Channel denizen makes his way to the big city to perform with Rise, Yu, and the rest of the Investigation Team but not before getting swept up in the bear-ou-ha-ha when Kanamin Kitchen disappears.
If you’re unfamiliar with Persona 4: Dancing All Night, here’s the description:
Persona 4: Dancing All Night is a story-driven music game that takes place after the events in Persona 4. Players get pulled onto the Midnight Stage when the spotlight turns to mega-idol Rise and her junior group, Kanamin Kitchen. Members of Kanamin Kitchen have disappeared and it’s up to the Investigation Team to mount a rescue mission – only they discover the same monstrous Shadows from the Midnight Channel. To make matters even worse, their Persona abilities are rendered ineffective, and the Shadows in P4D can only be defeated by dance, so bust out powerful dance moves to save the day!
Persona 4: Dancing All Night will be available through retail stores and the PlayStation Store for $49.99, with a Disco Fever Edition at $79.99 including “a 2-disc soundtrack, a full-color Teddie enameled pouch, costume DLC, and a Teddie keychain. Both the Disco Fever and retail launch editions will include a PS Vita skin decal and 10 matching wallpapers.”
