Persona 5 soundtrack released

We've got some good news for all you music aficionados because ATLUS is partnering with iam8bit to release the Persona 5 soundtrack on vinyl records! So what can you expect? Well, there're going to be two editions available for purchase:

  • Essential Edition - This version will come with 4 vinyl records that contain selected tracks curated by the Atlus Sound Team and will be priced at $100.
  • Deluxe Edition - This version will feature the complete Persona 5 soundtrack on 6 vinyl records and will be priced at $175 (limited pressing of 1,000).

Besides having sweet Persona 5 music on vinyl, you can bet that the records will come packaged with stunning album cover art. We can't reveal it just yet, but please stay tuned to iam8bit for more information in the future. AND THAT'S NOT ALL! iam8bit will also be documenting the entire creation process of the albums via videos, photos, and interviews.
This includes:

  • Mastering - They'll visit their favorite mastering studio, Infrasonic, and chronicle how music is mixed for the retro technology that is vinyl.
  • Test Presses - They'll show you what it's like to create lacquers & test presses, which serve as the benchmark for the vinyl's audio quality.
  • Vinyl Production - They'll hang with their friends from Noiseland at their factory in France, capturing the analog magic of melting "wax" and stamping records. It's pretty crazy to see because some of these machines are nearly 100 years old!
  • Packaging - They'll reveal just how much work goes into creating a unique packaging experience from design to printing to assembly.
  • Artwork - They'll reveal the "Mystery Album Art," the result of an intimate collaboration between iam8bit, ATLUS, SEGA, and a to-be-announced, top-secret artist.

The Persona 5 vinyl soundtracks will ship in Q4 2017

Plus, the game is now available for PS3 and PS4 digital download on the PlayStation®Store. The PS4 version is priced at $59.99 and the PS3 version is priced at $49.99 (with commensurate international pricing).

Persona 5 is a game about the internal and external conflicts of a group of troubled youth who live dual lives. They have the typically ordinary day-to-day of a Tokyo high-schooler - attending class, after school activities and part-time jobs. But they also undertake fantastical adventures by using otherworldly powers to enter the hearts of people. Their power comes from the Persona, the Jungian concept of the "self;" the game's heroes realize that society forces people to wear masks to protect their inner vulnerabilities, and by literally ripping off their protective mask and confronting their inner selves do the heroes awaken their inner power, and use it to strive to help those in need. Ultimately, the group of Phantom Thieves seeks to change their day-to-day world to match their perception and see through the masks modern-day society wears.

Persona 5 is now available in the Americas and Europe, for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
