Persona 4: Dancing All Night's new trailer is fixated on...meat


Well, I guess that's one way to talk about yourself

Mention "meat fixation" to a fan of Persona 4 and you'll most likely trigger fond memories of Chie Satonaka, the franchise's resident martial arts junkie and legendary carnivore. That said, I think even Chie would find it difficult to stomach the latest character trailer for Persona 4: Dancing All Night, the PS Vita rhythm game due for release this year.

In the trailer (helpfully subtitled by translator Thomas James), rival idol Kanami Mashita (a.k.a. "Kanamin") introduces herself using terms more commonly employed to describe the marbling on a steak or the quality of cattle. I know using food terms on people is common practice in English ("He's a tall glass of water", etc.), and that Kanamin is a big girl who can say what she likes, but I can't help but find the language ever so slightly uncomfortable for some reason. Then again, she does call herself "weird", too, so perhaps that's an affectation I could get behind...eventually.

And speaking of beefcake, the character trailer for protagonist Yuu Narukami, also subtitled by Thomas James, is located below for your Saturday Night Fever comparisons.
