IRVINE, Calif. – May 26, 2015 – When the clock strikes Midnight, a whole new kind of battle awaits Persona 4’s Investigaton Team, because that’s when a strange video appears on the internet and the unfortunate people who watched it have gone missing! Investigating the Midnight Stage and rescuing members of pop group Kanamin Kitchen set the scene in Persona 4: Dancing All Night, the upcoming story-driven music game for the PlayStation┬«Vita handheld entertainment system. Available this fall, P4D will arrive in stores in both a Launch Edition as well as the Persona 4: Dancing All Night “Disco Fever” Edition! This special edition will be available in limited quantities based on pre-orders; the “Disco Fever” Edition will be $79.99/CA$99.99, and the Launch Edition of P4D will be $49.99/CA$59.99.

The “Disco Fever” Edition includes:

  • Two Discs Chock Full of Persona 4 Music Remixes: Hear the Persona 4: Dancing All Night soundtrack in all its glory! The two-disc CD set is full of original classics including “Pursuing My True Self,” and “Shadow World,”new song arrangements including “Heartbeat, Heartbreak” and “Your Affection,” remixes by artists including Lotus Juice, TK and Yuu Miyake, and completely new songs specifically composed for P4D!
  • Last Night a Vita Pouch Saved My Life: Protect your PS Vita in this custom P4D enameled pouch with a full color P4D design featuring Teddie in all his Elvis-esque jumpsuit glory on one side, and an embossed version of the P4D logo on the reverse. Not for sale in North America, the “Disco Fever” edition is the only way to get the exquisitely detailed pouch.
  • Costume Change: Two sets of paid DLC outfits will come with the “Disco Fever” Edition for free – Persona 3’s Gekkoukan High School uniform set, and the summer break outfit set- to dress up Chie, Kanji, Rise, Naoto, and the rest of the human (sorry, Teddie) Investigation Team! The song “Never More” is also included as a bonus playable song.
  • All About that Bear: Never lose your keys or whatever else again with a golden Teddie keychain. Exclusive to North America, the gold (not real gold, of course) keychain comes embossed in the visage of all of Teddie’s gloriousness, based on the belt buckle design on his P4D jumpsuit!
  • The Whole Package: All the items will come in a large collectible box with custom disco ball art (based on the Japanese Crazy Value Pack version of P4D)

Both the “Disco Fever” edition and the standard retail version pre-orders will include:

Cover Band: Preserve the sanctity of the PS Vita’s display with a form-fitting skin to show off the very essence of P4D! Also exclusive to North America, the skin won’t be sold separately. 10 PS Vita wallpapers are included and will perfectly match the outer decal. (The skin is designed to fit the most recent model of PS Vita)

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!

P4D is exclusive to the PS Vita (PSTV compatible), with fully-voiced story mode and challenging music-rhythm gameplay spanning more than 25 full songs. This includes songs from the original game, created by legendary Persona series music composer, Shoji Meguro and their remixes. In addition to the retail versions, the game will be available digitally on the PlayStation Network for $49.99/CA$59.99. The game is not yet rated by the ESRB, and for more details on the game, check out http://www.atlus.com/p4dan.

    Can anyone speak on why the standard edition is so expensive for a Vita game?

    • JDobbs

      The standard version is only $10.00 more than buying a brand new Vita game.

    • Klagmar

      Well, exactly. It’s unusual for a Vita game to be $50. I don’t know if it’s because of the content in the game, its status as a more niche title, or something else. That’s what I’m asking.

    • Tara

      Unfortunately, Atlus has been doing this with all of their games as of late, or at least the SMT series and spinoffs. Admittedly that’s all they make anymore that I actually care about (since they haven’t touched the Trauma Center series in almost 5 years…) Anyway… even 3DS entries, like Persona Q, Devil Survivor 2, and Shin Megami Tensei 4 have all been $50 at launch. I actually only just got Persona Q last week because Amazon had the “Wild Cards” Collector edition for $50, when it was originally $80 (seem familiar?) so I figured that was worth it enough for me to go for it.

      Anyway, it seems the days of Atlus putting out new releases at a $40 price tag with a bunch of bonus stuff are long gone, as sad as that is, but I don’t deny they still put out a quality product. (However, I won’t be getting anything Day 1 from them anymore, as they seem to have not only ample stock of collector’s editions, but enough that they’re selling at a major discount half a year later…) As I see it, that means the strategy probably isn’t working out too well for them. I mean, I got Persona 4 Arena Ultimax last month for $20 on Amazon, and it was the collector’s edition as well. (Had the Teddie bop bag, and the tarot cards.) That was the launch edition, the game came out in September, and I’m still able to get the Day 1 version… seems like they’re not selling much.

    • Klagmar

      Thanks for the response, that’s exactly what I was wondering. It seems an odd policy to adopt, but if it keeps Atlus making good games…

    • Tara

      Well, it seems to have taken hold around the time Index started having financial issues (or about the time it was acknowledged they were fudging sales and profit numbers). It just kinda… remained even after the sale to Sega. I’m gonna guess that it’s in part because Sega wants to make as much money as possible off this, since they can’t seem to make any money otherwise.

      That said, the quality has remained top-notch, so while I can complain about the extra $10 on the already high-end $40 price of an Atlus game (plus the cost of any DLC that I might want) I can’t say it’s not ultimately worth it, because they’re bringing games that are well worth it, and doing an excellent job with the localization, plus voicing games where another company might cut voices to save money (looking at you, Namco Bandai).

      Must be the infamous atlus tax.
