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.
