“Persona” is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a $400 vinyl box set containing remastered music from all of the franchise’s games. According to a report by Eurogamer, Atlus, the franchise’s publisher, worked with iam8bit to create the vinyl box set. 

“To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Persona, iam8bit and Atlus have collaborated to honour the beloved series’ sounds with a deluxe box set like no other – a monumental 15-disc collection dating all the way back to the OG game from 1996,” says iam8bit. 

It will feature eight and a half hours’ worth of music contained in vinyls that have been themed after each game in the series. 

According to the report of Eurogamer, the box set has a total of 15 discs and includes a certificate of authenticity. It also has a slip case whose design celebrates the 25th anniversary of the franchise. 

The box set will also include postcard pack-ins that are unique to each game in the franchise. 

Individual copies of the game’s soundtracks can also be purchased at varying prices that will depend on the number of vinyls included. 

The Music of ‘Persona’

“Persona 3” took on a more hip-hop themed soundtrack and “Persona 4” went for more retro-pop music. Last and certainly not the least, “Persona 5” became known for its jazz soundtrack.
