Bandai Namco Entertainment Australia have today announced that they will be collaborating with Nippon Ichi Software America to publish Persona 4: Dancing All Night in Australia and New Zealand later this year. This announcement follows the one made earlier today which saw NIS America announce their PAL region plans for the rhythm/dancing game. ATLUS USA will still handle publishing in North America.
In a surprising move given they usually only release standard edition sets in their supported regions, Bandai Namco Entertainment Australia have also confirmed that limited stock of the game’s “Disco Fever” EU Edition will also be available for purchase. Although this may possibly change in the months leading to launch, the Disco Fever edition is slated to include two discs of Persona 4 Music Remixes, the “Last Night a Vita Pouch Saved My Life” pouch, “All About that Bear” keychain, a “Cover Band” PlayStation Vita skin and a large collectable box to store everything in.
Currently the game is set for release later this year. It is currently unknown if there will be a delay involved in bringing P4D to Australia and New Zealand, or if there will be a launch simultaneous with North America.
Official Synopsis for Persona 4: Dancing All Night
Persona 4: Dancing All Night (P4D) is a story-driven music game that takes place after the events of 2014’s fighting game, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. 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 into the Midnight Stage and it’s up to Rise and 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 old powers no longer work, and the Shadows in P4D can only be defeated by dance, so it’ll be up to players to bust out powerful dance moves in order to save the day!
