About this game
Content Rating: Teen
Replacing the RPG elements are dance battles that challenge players' dexterity and accuracy, as they tap out re-mixes of fan-favorite themes and brand new music tracks. The storyline continues from after the events of Persona 4, when the teenage mega-idol, Rise Kujikawa, returns to the city to re-take her show biz career. During that time, a strange video appears on the internet and the unfortunate people who watched it have gone missing! Members of Kanamin Kitchen, Rise's junior idol group, have disappeared and it's up to 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 Persona abilities are rendered ineffective, and the Shadows in P4D can only be defeated by dance, so bust out powerful dance moves to save the day!

Dancing All Night isn’t the best example of the genre that I’ve ever played, and it could be a hard sell to anyone not a fan of the franchise, but it’s far, far better than it has any right to be. And, now that I’ve gotten both a fighting game and a music game based on Persona, I’m left wondering which of my favorite genres are going to surprisingly get knocked out by Atlus next.
Persona 4: Dancing All Night has managed to surpass all expectations in what it set out to do. This love letter to Persona 4’s music and fans hits every single note. It stands as an easy recommendation to series adherents and rhythm action fanatics alike; it also serves as a great entry point for those wary of the genre. It is easy to get into and very difficult to put down and the value of the money spent versus entertainment quotient is also quite high.
There's a lot to like about Persona 4: Dancing All Night; unfortunately a lack of cohesive game design hinders the product as a whole. For an MSRP of $50, justifying a purchase is difficult. It's good, but compared to the competition, it flounders.
