Want to see some magazine scans?! ...No? Well, too bad, we're going to show them anyway!
This week, Dengaki Playstation
has provided new details on Persona 4: Dancing All Night, which will be released in Japan on June 2015. Check out these scans! And don't worry, we'll give you the gist of the details provided by the magazine. Of course, we got all of these scans and the translation from Gematsu
Yosuke - He and his friends head out to the city where Yu is for unspecified reasons during the story.
Chie - Like in fighting, her dance style has copious amounts of kung fu.
Kanji - His dance style makes copious use of his brute strength to charm his audience
Teddie - He refers to himself in the article as “The Prince of Dance.”BATTLE SYSTEM
Players are tasked with beating back Shadows by dancing.
Players will tap buttons that appear on screen in time to rhythm. (Left side of screen: Up, Left, and Down. Right side: Triangle, Circle, and X.)
The game features familiar twists like simultaneous button presses, long presses (seen as a pair of H’s inside a long oval), and such.
Players can build up combos and trigger special scenes. More information on that is coming at a later date.
Duets with two dancers also occur in the game, in addition to characters dancing solo.
The enemy icon from the Shin Megami Tensei Super Nintendo games appears at the top of screen during dances.
I have a feeling that this game will be addicting! For anyone who has not tried rhythm games, you should grab your hands on any musical game right now
. Trust me - one minute you're just curious, but the next you're hooked

He lives with his parents' friends at a coffee shop named SUMIKONSTORY
Director Katsuna Hashino has remained silent on where the protagonist's fights take place and why Personas appear as enemies. There is a reason behind these two, though.ANIMATION STUDIO
The animation studio that is handling Persona 5‘s anime scenes is Production I.G, and that studio’s anime director is the one who suggested the character figure skating scenes in the trailer.COMBAT AND EXPLORATION
The game starts in Shibuya, but takes place in various parts of Tokyo as well.
Each character has their own distinct firearm for long distance weapons, however they aren’t actual guns, yet are still effective in combat.SOCIAL LINKS
Social Links or a mechanic like them will have new twists, while also pertaining to their traditional elements of increasing various strengths/abilities.MUSIC
The song heard in the Persona 5 trailer is the instrumental version of the main theme, according to series composer Shoji Meguro
Meguro also stated that he wanted to give Persona 5's music acid jazz-like elements to bring out the game’s mood, including the main theme
Direcotr Hashino was happy with the music, since jazz goes hand-in-hand with the story of Lupin in its phantom thief motif.
So, what do you guys think?
