Atlus USA has written descriptions for the main game modes in Persona 4: Dancing All Night, and they have released new English screenshots featuring menus and costumes from the localized version of the game as well.
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!
Persona 4: Dancing All Night is releasing in Japan this Thursday, on June 25. The PlayStation Vita exclusive rhythm game has been announced for a North American release in fall 2015.
