Persona 4:Dancing All Night

Developer: Atlus

Publisher: Atlus USA

System: PlayStation Vita

ESRB Rating: T

Thank you Atlus USA for providing us with a review copy!

Persona 4 Dancing All Night is looking to be the big sendoff Atlus wishes to give the Persona 4 series before transitioning into Persona 5. If someone was to ask me what stands out the most to me about Persona 4 or Persona 4 Golden I would tell them two things, the games music and its story. What this game does is take both those elements and mixes them together almost perfectly.

PREVIEW:Persona 4 Dancing All Night-Fan Service Done Right

As with all Preview’s, this is my first impression of the game, opinions are subject to change in the final review.

I am going to be honest, when I first saw Persona 4 Dancing All Night I was a bit disappointed. I thought Persona Q was a good sendoff of both the Persona 3 and Persona 4 team. So I kind of wrote this game off at first, sure I thought it would be good, I mean its Persona, but I didn’t think it would be anything ground breaking to me, that it would just be a good rhythm game with a lackluster story along the lines of Arena and Ultimax.

Needless to say when I first started to play the game I was surprised to how much was actually there. You are free to go ahead and unlock all the songs right from the start without having to go into the games story mode. The selections of songs to start out with were pretty awesome, and unlocking all the other songs were a bit of a treat. The game plays like a standard rhythm game, press the buttons as they slide over their respective icons on the screen. However it takes a bit of getting use to as how the two button prompts are on opposite sides of the screen, I found myself going cross-eyed at times, but I eventually learned to just go with the flow and rhythm of the game. The selections of songs and remixes are amazing, and the different range in difficulty prevents things from getting dull, there are also a lot of items you can buy to make things easier for you, or mix things up and have the songs play completely different than what you were used to.  There isn’t much else I can say about this without going too deep into it like a review, but what I can say is that the selection of music is great, and the dance choreography is top notch, I’ll never get tired of watching certain duos dancing to my favorite songs.

Now let’s talk a little bit about the story mode. Don’t worry no spoilers here, but I will say that this games story is very superb for what it is. For a rhythm game I did not expect to see such an in depth story, but then again it is Persona. This games story makes the game feel more like an actual Persona 4 sequel than that of Arena and Ultimax, all the same feelings you got from Persona 4’s narrative are used in this game which honestly is a welcome surprise. The story is quite extensive, so don’t expect a short, charming and quick story that is used as a tutorial for all the songs.

So far Persona 4 Dancing All Night is shaping up to be a great send off for the Persona 4 team, the music in this game is awesome to listen to, and the game really tries to get you into each song’s rhythm as you play through each song in Free Mode, and the games story is very reminiscent of the original Persona 4 story. I can’t wait to go back and continue playing this game and trying to perfect each song.
