You might know that Atlus's upcoming Persona-themed rhythm game Persona 4: Dancing All Night includes music, but did you know the game also includes a fully-featured story mode? With the game's release later this Fall in North America, Atlus has released some new info about said mode along with some of the other extras included in the game.
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!
For those who have played Persona 4 Arena or Persona 4 Arena Ultimax will find things very familiar in this game, as it's presented in a similar visual novel-type format, which follows 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.
In addition to the story mode, there's also a couple other modes worth mentioning. Free Dance lets you practice the game's songs to aim for your personal high score, choosing the difficulty, partner, and costume you want. And for getting those costumes and other extras to use, the infamous Tanaka's Amazing Commodities returns as the way to use the P$ earned from performing well in the songs. There's also a music player, character profiles, gallery, high scores, and online leaderboards to name a few to keep track of if you wish.
Persona 4: Dancing All Night will be released later this Fall in North America in both a special launch edition edition for $49.99 and a "Disco Fever" edition for $79.99, the content of both you can find out in this earlier news post.
