The Persona 5 vinyl soundtrack is going to set you back a pretty penny.
Persona 5, from Atlus, has been something of a smash hit. And in a first quarter of the year that includes Breath of the Wild, Horizon Zero Dawn, Resident Evil VII, Yakuza 0, Nier: Automata… you get the idea. It’s a big deal.
And with a big success, typically comes two things: a whacking great clump of DLC; and a raft of ancillary tie-in products. Persona 5 already has plenty of the former on the way, so it must be time to turn our attention to the latter.
One of the most interesting is the Persona 5 vinyl soundtrack.
It’s being brought to the world by iam8bit, the specialist company who produce a lot of exclusive, limited edition video game soundtracks, and the standard edition will include four vinyl LPs. Those four pressings will include a selection of the best tracks from the game, curated by the Atlas Sound Team. If that’s not enough for you, there’s also a six record special edition – limited to 1000 pressings – which will include every single scrap of the game’s music, for your pleasure.
You can pre-order the regular and special editions of the Persona 5 vinyl soundtrack right now, but they won’t be shipping until Q4 2017. In the intervening period, iam8bit and the Atlus crew will be documenting the entire process, including mastering, test pressing, artwork and packaging, and vinyl production.
Whether that’s enough to keep you happy for the next six-to-eight months – given that the regular edition costs $100, and the limited edition costs $175 – probably depends on your point of view.
