I already wrote about why I was disappointed in Atlus over this swimsuit DLC for Persona 4: Dancing All Night, but I know not everyone shares my overbearing principles* and would like to see the swimsuit trailer, so I will do my civic duty and post it here, on-line.
*my overbearing principles involve seeing Kanji in a speedo. How the hell does he not get a swimsuit costume? read
