It features remixes of the soundtrack and dancing characters from Persona 4. Some of the contributing remixing artists include , , , and .for the
The story takes place half a year after the Inaba serial murder case was solved, the epilogue of Golden, and months after Rise Kujikawa's return to the world of entertainment, meaning it is set in 2012.
As rumors begin spreading that "at midnight, if you see a strange video playing on a certain site, you are transported to the 'other side' and will never wake up again," the members of the idol group Kanamin Kitchen, which includes Rise's underclassman, Kanami Mashita, are disappearing.
While the Investigation Team are conducting their own investigations, Ryotaro and Nanako Dojima come in order to see the "Love Meets Bonds" Festival event at which the protagonist and his friends were supposed to appear. Upon realizing that the protagonist has gone missing, the two of them begin searching for him and thus end up meeting Kanami, who is in distress due to the disappearance of her idol group´s members and decide to aid her in the investigations regarding the whereabouts of her group members.
While the Investigation Team is forced to continue dancing on the Midnight Stage, Kanami, Dojima, and Nanako form a team in the real world in order to solve the mystery on their own. Just to what solution will each of the teams come in the end? In addition to the mystery, four members of Kanamin Kitchen must be rescued as well.
In the game, players engage in a "dance battle" with the Shadows in the mysterious world of the "Mayonaka Stage." There will be four difficulties -- Easy, Normal, Hard, and an unlockable All Night. In story mode, it will be possible to make things even easier. Clearing a song will cause the Investigation Team's Personas to appear and clear away the Shadows.
Modifiers also exist to make the game easier or harder, and affect your final score and Persona $ reward accordingly.
All characters in the game have multiple costumes, which can be purchased with currency earned for clearing songs. Additional DLC costumes, tracks, accessories, characters and song backgrounds are planned.
In Free Dance mode, the player can pick any character and their costumes, but not the song, as each track is tied to a specific character. Support characters, who provide unique choreographies for the main character, can also be chosen. There are also a number of songs which are exclusive to Free Dance mode, including all the DLC tracks.
Later it was revealed in Persona Stalker Club Episode 16, not only can the characters customizable with DENON headphones, but the characters can be customized with "Shadow" eyes to make the characters appear as their "Shadow Selves".
DLC wigs and colored contacts can also be purchased for the characters.

- This is the first rhythm game in the Persona series. It is also first Persona game to featured popular VOCALOID. Hatsune Miku.
- Persona 4: Dancing All Night shares similarities and traits from two popular SEGA rhythm games, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA and MaiMai:
- Difficulty levels in P4DAN are taken from Project DIVA but the colors are from arcade series. However, extreme difficulty in Project DIVA has been renamed All Night;
- The gameplay screen is based off the Maimai series;
- Tanaka's super shop also works the same way as that in the Project DIVA console series, where players earn money by clearing a song. In Project DIVA, the money is called DIVA points.
- The current Project DIVA game, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X later inherited P4DAN traits and gameplay.
- The Investigation Team's costumes almost all come from Persona 4 Golden; the only Golden costumes missing are Teddie's epilogue costume, all of Human Teddie's costumes except casual and drag, Festival Jubei (for Naoto), Yukata, Cheer Squad set (for everyone but Chie and Yukiko), Agent outfit, and Bath Towels (for males).
- Rise's High-Cut Armor and Christmas costumes appear to be very different from the ones shown in one of Persona 4 The Golden Animation's costume themes.
- Data for an unused Velvet Room outfit was discovered by a fan. It bears a resemblance to an outfit featured in the second promotional video for Persona 5. Presumably, it was meant to be an alternate costume for Nanako.
