Persona 4: Dancing All Night is also officially confirmed for the West! The special edition includes all three games and is called The Endless Night Collection. There is also a digital PS4/Vita bundle. But be warned that P4DAN is only available as part of the bundle set.
So individual games are full price as in Japan, bundle is cheaper than buying both separately.

Date is for NA and Europe
From Wario64:
  • PS4 Standalone: $59.99 USD
  • PS4 Bundle: $99.99 USD
  • PS Vita Standalone: $39.99 USD
  • PS Vita Bundle: $69.99 USD (Vita versions are digital only)
The PS4 version of Persona 4: Dancing All Night should be compatible with purchased DLC from the Vita version. So yes, you will be able to dance with best girl Hatsune Miku in HD now.

Cool that we're getting the 3-game bundle but is that physical only? I gotta imagine there'd be a digital version of that too right?
Cause I was planning on only getting P5D at launch and P3D later but if the bundle is available digitally I may get all of them on Day 1.

The OP mentions that there is a digital bundle now.

To those who already played the Japanese versions: any gameplay improvements in P5D and P3D compared to P4D? Really disliked the beatmaps in P4D so I am reluctant to get these games.

Definitely splitting the bundle with the gf

Can't wait!!!

EDIT: Wait...does the bundle NOT come with standard PS4 cases? Does it only come with that storybook case?
If so, I will definitely not buy it because that's a dealbreaker. So for now, waiting for confirmation.

That's what I'm trying to find out right now. At the moment it doesn't look like it and they could be handled the same way that Square Enix did their mini artbook with the disc inside like for KH 1.5, Rise of the Tomb Raider PS4 version, and WoFF.

That bundle price for all three seems a lot more reasonable than the individual prices. I guess that’s what they’re banking on.

Updated Thread Title to include P3D.
Should probably add P4D, that’s new.

Oof, those prices.

So didn't these bomb in Japan? Is there an issue with these games?
They didn’t bomb. But they didn’t do great either. The issue is they’re light on content (less than P4D), didn’t really improve on gameplay at all, the remixes are inconsistent quality and they’re full price titles with a lot of pricey DLC on top.

Woah, woah, woah. It comes with the art book!? Shit. Okay, I guess I'm buying... Is the Endless Night Collection the one that's priced at $100?

Does the digital download of P4D include the DLC for that game?
I've asked a couple of people about this and it doesn't. But you can buy the DLC for the Vita version which is compatible with the PS4 version. I'm assuming that the DLC goes on sale the same day that the PS4 version releases, but if you already have the DLC purchased on the Vita version, then you get the PS4 equivalent for free.

glad we are getting a collection. Upset P4D is download only
Its lame but it was the same situation in Japan.

Are there going to be a lot of free DLC songs like in Japan or are they planning on charging for them in NA now?

In Japan it didn't include it, no. You had to pay I think 10 yen per DLC to bring it over to the PS4 version.

There were a few issues regarding DLC and content in general:

- Both games are fairly light on content in comparison to P4D. Neither has a proper story mode and both have fewer songs.
- (iirc) both games include around 25 songs, which isn't an awful lot for the asking price and means the DLC effectively doubles the song count. The DLC also contains the full length versions of the theme songs for both games - only shortened versions are available initially.
- P4D only being available on PS4 as part of the bundle is fairly scummy.

Understandably it felt to most that Atlus was milking the fanbase at this point.

Well, that's a shame. Thanks.

Ah, right. The Endless Night Collection is the $100 bundle. That's not bad if it comes with the art book and P4D, but I'm really bummed we don't get the soundtrack. For Persona, I wouldn't mind missing out on the art book (for now) in exchange for the soundtrack. *sighs*

I think even if you disregard the free DLC songs, the ones you pay (in the JP ver) for is easily over 10000+yen in total if you buy them all.

That's not even including the paid costumes etc... so yeah, if one is to buy all of the DLC, $200 seems just about right.

both have fewer songs.
This is less of an issue if you include the free DLC songs too. Though the free songs can be played in either game.

I haven't looked at the store in a while, it seemed like they were adding about 1 free song and 1 song+character per week. At the time though seemed like about 4~5 extra free songs.

As far as I can tell though most of the songs aren't free. There're only a few free ones, and the others are between ¥250 and ¥350 each. Looks like there are a few which cost >¥500 too, but I'm not certain whether they're songs or VR performances or something.
