Persona 5 Vinyl Soundtrack Coming via iam8bit

This is Niche Culture. In this column, we regularly cover anime, geek culture, and things related to video games. Please leave feedback and let us know if there’s something you want us to cover!

Atlus and iam8bit have announced a vinyl release for the Persona 5 soundtrack.

Coming in two flavors and on actual, uncompressed vinyl, the hipster-tickling soundtrack includes:

  • 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).

iam8bit is also documenting the entire process of making this soundtrack release, alongside packaging it with “stunning album cover art,” which they can’t reveal yet.

The Persona 5 vinyl soundtracks will ship in Q4 2017 and pre-orders will begin 10:00 AM Pacific today via the official iam8bit website.

Expect our thorough video and written review for Persona 5 soon – we’ve recorded us playing the game for over 150 hours – make sure to check out our video archive of that here.

    Oh boo fucking hoo. Some of you Anti SJWs are worse than the SJWs

    Welp, I bought Hyper Light Drifter from them. I should have just imported via pasia.

    “I won’t support someone who disagrees with me” is worse than “you’d better not do this thing or else”? How the hell?

    Don’t know, I haven’t doxxed anyone or called their jobs.

    1 t-shirt…….

    I say that 1 t-shirt is overshadowed by great vinyl soundtracks and a physical release of Rez Infinite.

    Cry babies

    Ignoring that iam8bit are run by morons, vinyl is complete garbage in terms of sound quality, and only the most try hard hipsters would want this over priced garbage. It’s pointless to put music produced digitally onto a vinyl record. But you’re likely naïve and fell for the vinyl meme like an idiot.

  • DJ Rev

    You sir are an idiot and got yo ass blocked

    Who could be behind this post.

  • DJ Rev

    You’ll never find out, your ass is blocked too.

  • Just Some Guy

    Ohhh nooooo…

  • tBanzai

    Oh, we having one of these? Block me too!

  • Snorlaxation

    Is Vinyl worth it? Like quality wise, I mean. I’m the kind of person that’ll want to buy a Persona steering wheel cover, so my opinion isn’t worth a whole lot on topics like these, but the price vs it being a persona product and the music being good, who wins?

  • randomdude

    If you got the money, it’s supporting Atlus. Besides, vinyl is decent in quality and is much more resistant to magnetic problems.

  • sanic

    I do like the OST but I don’t own a record player and would rather not give iam8bit money.

    Block me senpai~

  • Feniks

    Fucking hipsters.

    No my shitty thrift store pickup is better than FLAC!

    If you excuse me I’m going to find a cloud to yell at now.

  • Feniks

    To be fair try hard hipsters are likely their target audience.
    Fleece them for all that they are worth.

    There’s plenty of music that sounds better on vinyl, even if it was recorded digitally, because of acoustics. While I don’t imagine many video game soundtracks would benefit from the wax treatment, “teh hipsters” argument against vinyl is one of the stupidest fucking things in the world.

  • Just Some Guy

    Hipster detected.

  • Sean Sharpe

    Last time I checked, hipsters didn’t give a shit about doom metal, psychedelic rock, speed metal, or Japanese hardcore outside of GISM. I mean, maybe shit changed. I have been out of the loop for about five years… But if that’s the case, I need to tell those kids in skinny jeans to get off my got dang yard.

  • Just Some Guy

    Angry hipster alert.

  • Sean Sharpe

    Not really. Just confused how hipsters got on my lawn, more than anything else.
