Persona 4: Dancing All Night was announced at the end of 2013. An American release was confirmed shortly afterwards. Yet there was no word on whether the title would be released in Europe, or anywhere else for that matter. Given the popularity of Persona 4, the idea that it wouldn’t be released elsewhere was a silly one. It was bound to come over at some point, especially since an English-language version was going to be available in America. The question was when it would be released. And finally, we have our answer.

With the game already out in Japan, it’s now been confirmed that European fans will be able to get their hands on it this autumn. Hopefully, it’ll be around the same time that America gets it: 29th September.

What’s curious, though, is that Atlus, despite publishing the game in Japan and America, won’t be handling publishing duties for Europe. Instead, NIS America will be responsible for bringing the rhythm-action game to European shores (am I the only one that finds that ironic?). They have also published some of Atlus’ other titles, such as the 3DS Persona crossover Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth and some of the Etrian Odyssey games.

Persona 4: Dancing All Night is a spin-off the RPG Persona 4 made for the PlayStation Vita; instead of turn-based battles and dungeon crawling, you’ll instead take to the dance floor and bust a move to original and remixed music from Persona 4. It also features a brand new story, where Persona 4’s main cast are reunited to solve another mystery – the strange disappearances of the members of a pop group called Kanamin Kitchen. Believing it to be connected to something called ‘the Midnight Stage,’ our heroes embark on a mission to save the kidnapped idols and defeat the merciless monsters that lie within with the power of dance. It looks glorious to say the least.

Europe will also receive physical and digital copies of the limited ‘Disco Edition’ of the game, which comes with a whole lot of extra goodies. These goodies include:

  • the full soundtrack to the game
  • a uniquely designed Vita pouch
  • a Teddie keychain

Those of you in Australia and New Zealand will be pleased to know that Dancing All Night will also be released over there by the end of 2015. Bandai Namco, however, will be publishing it. In the meantime, check out the E3 2015 trailer that Atlus released, just in case you need to be reminded why you should be excited.

After the recent port to PS5, Microsoft is “really pleased” with the overall sales and performance of Sea of Thieves. As a result, more people are playing the Xbox and PC versions as well. Matt Booty, president of game content and studios at Microsoft Gaming, said this:. He also said that the success of the series means it can grow and that more money should be spent on a Variety podcast interview.

Microsoft is bringing four games that used to only be available on Xbox to other systems. Sea of Thieves was the last of these games to come out. The others are Pentiment, Grounded, and Hi-Fi Rush. Even though things have been going well lately, Booty says that more ports will be dealt with “case-by-case.”

News spread before the port came out that Sea of Thieves was being used as a “key test” to see if more Xbox-only games would be ported to PS5, PS4, and Xbox One. In May 2024, the game was the best-selling PS Store game in both Europe and the US. It also did well in the weekly sales charts.

Aside from the four games that have already been ported to Xbox, nothing else has been officially confirmed. However, news reports say that a lot of exclusive games may be about to come to other platforms. Some say that PS5 games like Senua’s Saga: Hellblade II, Starfield, and a rumored remaster of Halo: Combat Evolved are all being thought about.

The upcoming game from the creators of the Danganronpa series has found a publisher in Sony subsidiary Aniplex. However, it’s worth noting that it won’t be initially released on the PS5. It is highly likely that The Hundred Line: Last Defense Academy will be released on Sony’s system at a later date, just like Master Detective Archives: Rain Code in October. However, the development team is currently focusing on prioritizing the release of their latest title on the Nintendo Switch and PC.

Described as a strategy game, the title allows players to step into the shoes of teenager Takumi Sumino, who resides in the perpetually secure Tokyo Residential Complex. When monsters suddenly unleash chaos upon the town, Takumi finds himself thrust into the Last Defense Academy. His mission? To protect the school alongside 14 other students for a grueling 100 days.

As one would anticipate, alongside the strategic gameplay, it is crucial to foster strong relationships with your comrades. Moreover, the outcome of the game can vary greatly, with a staggering 100 possible endings contingent upon the choices you make. We will reach out to Aniplex to inquire about the possibility of a PS5 port. However, it is important to note that Aniplex operates independently from PlayStation, as it falls under the Sony Music umbrella.

The photo mode in Alan Wake 2 on PS5 doesn’t hold many surprises

Most new games these days have some kind of photography feature, so it’s hard to remember a time before Photo Modes. Some developers don’t think it’s important for players to be able to take pictures right away, so the feature is added later. One great example of this is Alan Wake 2, which now has Photo Mode thanks to a new update that is now available.

If you look at the trailer above, you can see that you can really get creative with your photos by adding cool borders, overlays, and filters. We always like photo modes, where you can move different lights around in the scene. As the video shows, Remedy really lets you use your imagination with the different colors and lighting props.
