Persona 4: Dancing All Night Is Releasing Fall 2015 In Europe

Atlus have finally announced a European release window for their upcoming cross dressing/rhythm game, Persona 4: Dancing All Night. Between this and Persona Q, maybe Atlus’ hate of Europe is subsiding after all these years?

So as any Persona, Shin Megami Tensei, or indeed Attack on Titan fan is well aware; Atlus hates Europe. There are probably a dozen other series’ that can be added to the list too. The fact remains that in the past, the Atlus games which do make it to Europe, release a good while after their North American counterparts. They don’t always release at all – yes, I’m still upset about Zoids Assault okay?

Imports you say? Sure, all the more power to you if you can stomach a seventy hour role playing game in another language. But in the case of Persona 4 Arena, Atlus region locked the game – to maintain the sanctity of each region’s sales and revenue. Europe didn’t get that game until nine months after the US. Its sequel, Persona 4: Arena Ultimax (Ultra Suplex Hold) wasn’t region locked, though still launched much later in Europe.

Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chain wasn’t really their fault; the name caused some legal trouble. The renamed Shingeki No Kyojin: Humanity in Chains will be launching on the 3DS eShop this Thursday, July 2nd, for £25.99 (€ 29.99).

Persona 4: Dancing All Night will launch physically and digitally on the PlayStation Vita this Fall (or Autumn is you prefer) in Europe, coming to Australia and New Zealand sometime in 2015. It has already released in Japan and is coming September 29th in North America.

Additionally, there will be a limited “Disco Fever” EU Edition, which will include:
  • Two discs of Persona 4 music remixes.
  • A PlayStation Vita pouch, featuring Teddie of course.
  • A golden Teddie keychain.
  • A Vita skin, designed for the more recent model of the Vita.
  • And it will all come in a collectible box, based on the Japanese Crazy Value Pack version.

Atlus did stress that the content is not finalised. They haven’t release any art of the EU version, though it seems largely the same as the North American Disco Fever Edition, with the notable exception of not including the fourteen DLC costumes and bonus song. But hey, at least it’s coming out.
Oh and here’s the E3 trailer, because why not!
