Pre-concert marathon livestream said to include much in the way of new Persona news.

Persona 4: Dancing All Night

Atlus has just announced through the official Japanese Persona hub that it’ll be holding a special “news flash” live stream on Wednesday, February 4.

The stream, which is taking place the day before the Persona Super Live 2015 concert at the Nippon Budokan concert hall starting at 1:00 p.m. JST (making it 11:00 p.m. EST Tuesday night), will last for over 30 hours, featuring content that will “spare no expense at conveying the charms of the Persona seres,” including those new to the series, as well as more importantly featuring “a slew” of new news pertaining to the Persona franchise.

While the source post doesn’t explicitly mention that the Super Live 2015 concert proper will be included in the broadcast, its projected run time does overlap with the start of the show, which is currently set for 6:30 p.m. JST on Thursday, February 5. Links are not yet available, but Atlus announced that live stream will be available on both the Persona Channel page, as well as Niconico.

In the meantime, until midnight on January 30 JST, prospective viewers can also vote on their favorite song from the Persona series, as well as their favorite character from Persona 4 Golden. (Do note that the voting pages are obviously in Japanese.) Atlus is currently remaining mum on what it intends to do with the tallied votes, but has implied that they will play a role of some sort in the stream.

More information on the broadcast is said to be forthcoming at an unspecified date and time. Gematsu will provides updates on this story as they arrive.

    “The stream […] will last for over 30 hours”

    Nah, I’m okay.

    It’s time to dance. Now that we’re at the midway point of the P3 movies, maybe it’s time for P3: Complete? Not sure I’d expect P5 gameplay yet.

      And why not? They revealed the game with their own live stream so it seems fitting to reveal the first flavour of gameplay with their own live stream.

  • vertical09

    Please Atlus, you’re shortening my life span with all this teasing.

  • Thomas James

    You can expect me to sit through as much as I can muster. Though the run-time is long, it’s likely much of it is filler and the schedule will at least be somewhat implied in advance. Worst case scenario, it’s still really easy to know when to tune out and when actual news is showing up~

    We have a premium NicoNico account, so our connection should be stable the whole way through. Maybe I’ll try rebroadcasting it with live translated commentary if I can bring other people aboard for the madness? We’ll see!

    • Zero

      Thanks for the hard work in advance!

      • Thomas James

        I do it for the love of love~

        • Pekola

          How romantic~

          • Thomas James

            Girrrrrrl, I love the way you love love so much, love~

  • MrFinalgamer

    Let me guess. It’ll be Dancing all Night stuff, maybe a trailer. They’ll also proceed to announce an anime based off Arena, because everyone wants more animated rush jobs. Then they’ll act dumb about P5 for 99% of the stream, and then show a small glimpse of it by the end. The hosts will get all hyped up, and the stream will end. Ya’ll can insert the filler they’ll have before the trailers. MAYBE they’ll announce a new game project, but I won’t hold my breath.

    Also, I know it’s not gonna win, but I still voted for my favorite song in the series (hey, maybe oldfags like myself will unite in this one).

    Either this, or Satomi Tadashi (P1 version) will hopefully win.

    • praecipuum

      Let’s hope you’re wrong.

    • SatsukiYumizuka

      i really doubt anything concerning pre-persona 3 will win or even come close unfortunately. I’d liked to proven wrong but everything points to otherwise. And your prediction for the show is probably on spot too

  • BlueCereal

    We need more news for P5 and a gameplay trailer! I also wouldn’t mind them announcing a definitive version of P3.

  • PuppetMaster

    P5 gameplay trailer pleaseeee! >.<

  • vishmarx

    i swear to god if they announce more random nonsense without showing us p5 gameplay…

    • Franggio Hogland

      You’ll rage and storm around but still love them :)

      I know that’s what I’m expecting from myself :D

      • vishmarx

        i know.
        its just that we havent had a high profile turn based jrpg on console in years and years.
        considering what they achieved with now,15yr old hardware and in just 2 years of development
        p5 is gonna be insane.

  • May_Patra

    Their last livestream was such a let-down. So I really shouldn’t be this excited,… but I am. Damn you, Atlus! Stop messing with our emotions.

  • Nodoka Miyazaki

    Persona 5 Gameplay or new trailer. OR GTFO

    HD version announced for PS4

    • Don


      • TetsuyaHikari

        As much as that was meant to be a joke, a part of me would not be surprised one bit if we did get a HD version of P4 for PS3/PS4, lol. Something tells me they aren’t quite finished milking that cow yet.

        • Don

          well if that’s the case atleast make it a P3 & P4 bundle..

        • Kaisenex

          if it came with all the persona games then hells yes. (lolyeahright)

      • Kaisenex

        persona 4 music ga- o wait.

    • SMTGamer

      Worst part is that I’ll watch it.

    • James Reilly

      They will probably talk about the latest Persona 3 movie instead. Maybe a Persona 4 arena movies though.

  • praecipuum

    Get hype!

  • articuzwolf

    More info on P5 please…1st look on Gameplay especially

  • ZaLalopox

    They’ll announce Persona Q Golden, featuring the cast of Persona 5

  • zuuum

    It’s pretty give that they’ll show the release date and a trailer of Persona 5. I hope the “favorite song” voting is for some DAN DLC. Would be cool to have more than just Persona 4 music in the game.

  • Kaien

    Can’t wait for more homosexual innuendo, granny and trash. Persona livestream is the shit.

  • SMTGamer


  • vileBrenman

    Persona 5 news?! This time I think it’s safe to say yes.

    • Jana Berry

      #If I could show you an easy proven and guaranteed way to make 379 dollar a day and more, working part-time from the comfort of your home, would you be interested?

        • Thomas James

          Thanks for helping us keep the comments clean! It’s greatly appreciated! <3

          • Yuntu

            No problem, those bots are at almost every site – so annoying :/

  • NeoGabumon23

    I doubt there will be any Persona 5 news. Don’t get your hopes up people.

    • praecipuum

      I think the opposite.

    • Billy Kostyra its persona 5

    • thedraper

      theres deffo going to be persona 5 news look at the theme its got persona 5 written all over it

    • Hexodious

      Or you’re expecting too less.

  • DesmaX

    Man, I’ll try to watch it this time. The P5 reveal stream reactions really was something else

  • DukeVerde

    So, is Dancing All Night going to be released any time soon…?

    • ThatGuy3190_7

      My guess is between late February to June, July in Japan, maybe late summer, early Fall in North America.

      My worst case scenario is that Tales of Zestria and Persona 5 are released around the same time.

  • Nashinote

    Persona 5 release date – 5th may.
    Would be neat though. With all 5s and stuff.

  • Kuro-Law

    Over 30hours???
    Welp gonna sit this one out

  • Vayne

    I would like to be gift live, but unfortunately do not live in that country, but could only enter japanese public this event.

  • Thomas James
    • Thomas James

      …I almost want to stealth edit the header image to this now.


      • Elvick

        Shoop his face onto Teddie.

      • Sal Romano

        I would’ve approved so long as it was a better quality image of her.

      • DesmaX

        Make this the header image of the stream page when it’s live

        • Thomas James


          Y… You’re on……….

  • Zukato

    Persona 5 news incoming?

  • Ping

    30 hours of fun with teddie?

    • Elvick

      Teddie: “I need an adult!”

    • Kaisenex

      featuring yu

      (brownie points for whoever knows what this is from)

      • SMTGamer


    • Elle

      uh….what is this from!? D:

      • Ping

        It happened during the p4g animation announcement livestream

        • Elle


    • Vayu Purana

      that dude on the right totally molested teddie……

  • Wolf Star

    Persona 4 dancing all night – trailer and release date.
    Persona 5- new trailer (everything with gameplay trailer) (no release date till E3 2015)
    That’s my guess :3 guessing always keeps me wrong lol.. I tried.

    • Kumiko Akimoto

      Why do people think there a japanese game would get a release trailer before the japanese do?

  • Kaisenex

    i will cry if they show no gameplay for p5.

    • Elle

      I’m ready for that anime cutscene showcasing not one but TWO new characters~*

  • Anime10121

    Not surprising, since they’v been HEAVILY hinting at a news blowout at the concert for a while now, but its good to finally have it confirmed :)

  • Guardian Byakko

    My guess is there will be some announcements and maybe trailers for persona 5 & persona 4 d.a.n. If there’s anything else regarding “movies/animes” I’d assume Persona arena, but I wouldn’t mind news regarding Persona 1&2 (very unlikely).

  • Bart Fatima

    Persona 5!!!! The world has been waiting so long for this moment.

  • Bart Fatima

    Now I love the fact they will cherish us with 30 hours of fun but all I need is a hour all about P5. Behind FFXV, P5 is my second most anticipated title.

  • Nightcore34

    30 hours, I feel another teddie troll like last time, took ages to actually announce p5.

  • James Reilly

    Please just mention some progress about Persona Dance. It got delayed so would like to know a new date.

  • BizarreJelly

    I’m ready ATLUS, give it to me. Slap me right in the face with some Persona 5.

    Also hopefully, something definite about dancing all night!

    • Elle

      Persona Tumblr is so odd to me. lol

      • BizarreJelly

        Every tumblr is just odd lol

  • ayanami-chan

    Breathing fucking intensifies

  • mrznyper

    HYPE. We haven’t had Yukiko confirmed for dancing all night, right?

  • insanekyo

    Hopefully we’ll see some in game footage of persona 5. Hoping it will look as good as catherine.

    • JReezy

      I don’t see why not. Both games were developed with the PS3 in mind and taking a step backwards graphically when designing for the same hardware would be weird. And kind of unforgivable.

  • PuppetMaster

    If they showed P5 gameplay than i promised i will ‘dance’ with Rise-chan all night :3

    • SMTGamer

      Man she’s adorable.

      • PuppetMaster

        Of course, she’s my waifu :3

        • SMTGamer

          Yeah, if I was Yu Narukami I would just accept her.

          • Jason Ryer

            Sadly idols cant date.It breaks the innocent facade idols give as marketed artists.

            • Elle

              That makes no sense to me in this day and time. Jpop artists are getting pregnant and married and they still act like they aren’t.

              • Jason Ryer

                idols are like disney channel starlets.Jpop artists have more freedom than idols which is why many a member of Akb48 went solo in thier 20s its a culture thing.She cant have a bf or be seen at a love hotel.These rules may change at somepoint.

                • Elle

                  I don’t remember jpop artists having that much freedom. Maybe I’m mixing kpop up.

    • NotCarolKaye

      I’d do that no matter what they show. :)

  • Jansen

    Persona 5: Platinum for the Vita confirmed! :3

    • SMTGamer

      The game has to come out first…

    • Kumomeme

      if it can run the game…we dont know how much the game looks,but i’m pretty sure they gonna do a lot of leapt of different aspect….with new hardware,surely they had more freedom than restriction

      • MrFinalgamer

        They made P3 run on a PSP. No matter how good P5 will look, they can easily do a Vita port.

      • Harry Potter

        its a PS3/PS4 game Vita is almost a PS3 i’m sure vita can do it

    • Elvick

      P2: Complete~

      • MrFinalgamer

        Someone’s talking some sense! Glad to see I’m not the only one that wants to punch Philemon in HD. (because fuck that guy)

  • Jean Carlos Rufioh Garcia Guer

    Pretty please my wallet is open for you Atlus it’s always open TTmTT

  • SOLOmio

    P5 damn it man! people need news and let me marry chie and naoto and maybe rise, Marie can be included as well!!

  • TheMagicmastere

    Persona 5 dammit and bring us an new Persona game for the Vita. after P4G and P4DAN bring us Persona 5 Platinum!

  • Jeremy Winters

    Persona 3:Sapphire please!
    Persona FES with P3P combat and female mc. Please! I have both versions and none are entirely definitive.

    • Vayu Purana

      wish they had Persona 4 Platinum for PS4 with Rule 63 Yu Narukami that allows you to romance Kanji <3 and/or Kanji being romancable by male Yu………I just wanna date Kanji dammit lol

      • Jeremy Winters

        Kanji was fabulous. ;)

    • Dammage

      I prefer the name Persona 3: Azure, but fucking yeah I’ve been holding off playing the game for hope that this would be announced

      • Jeremy Winters

        Me too. I just got the PS2 version of FES but I heard about this event so I stopped playing. If it’s not announced I’ll continue playing. :/

  • Vayu Purana

    I don’t mind if this stream doesn’t reveal a set release date for P5 but all i wanna see from it is actual gameplay, like a taste of what the battle system looks like, yes i know turn based, what new twist will they put on it this time
