Persona news live stream announced for February 4

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.
