The Brightest Stars of Persona 4: Dancing All Night — Yu Narukami and Rise Kujikawa

I know we just posted a couple of funny videos from Persona 4: Dancing All Night, but we’ve got to start getting ready for the game. Luckily, Atlus just sent us some brand new trailers and screenshots!

You don’t have an Idol Group without cast members, so it’s time to start meeting Persona 4: Dancing All Night’s cast! We’re starting off with two character videos.

First up? The Mega-Idol Star herself, Risette! She needs the help of the Investigation Team to save her Junior Idol group, Kanamin Kitchen when they go missing. Rise calls upon her old friends to go into the Midnight Stage and take on the Shadows that dwell within. Here’s her P4D Character Video and some screenshots (showing off her various costumes and accessories).

Next up, the head of the Investigation Team and the Persona 4 protagonist himself, Yu Narukami. Once Rise sends out the call for help, Yu and the rest of the Investigation Team are more than eager to help out. So Yu leads the rest of the investigation team as they bust out some crazy dance moves to help fight off the Shadows!

Persona 4: Dancing All Night is a story-driven music game that takes place after the events in Persona 4. 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 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!

Which of the Persona 4 Investigation Team are you looking forward to playing as?!

Lab Zero Games, creators of the critcally-acclaimed Skullgirls, announce their next project, Indivisible!

Indivisible is a new action/RPG IP, starring Ajna (AHZH-na), a girl who sets out on a globe-spanning journey to discover the truth behind her mysterious powers. On her quest she’ll be joined by a variety of unique heroes and gain new abilities to traverse the environments and defeat the enemies they’ll encounter along the way.

Indivisible is inspired by classics like Valkyrie Profile and Super Metroid, but with the unique characters and gameplay depth Lab Zero is known for. In addition to a fresh spin on action/RPG gameplay, Indivisible features a deep storyline inspired by southeast Asian and other world mythologies, Lab Zero’s trademark feature-quality 2D hand-drawn animation, and a lush soundtrack from legendary Secret of Mana composer Hiroki Kikuta.

Personally, I can’t WAIT for this. Skullgirls was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to see what they can do with a new genre!
