Persona 1-5 vinyl soundtracks now available to preorder from iam8bit

Last week iam8bit announced that they would be releasing the soundtracks to the six main games in the JRPG series Persona on vinyl and now they are ready with preorders. The soundtracks will be available individually (except 1, 2: Innocent Sin and 2: Eternal Punishment, which will be bundled together) and together as part of a complete box set.

Persona 1 and 2 will be a 3LP on pink, purple and green colored vinyl. They will be sold together, but seemingly be housed in two separate boxes.

Persona 3 will be a 4LP on blue, yellow, red and purple colored vinyl. It will be housed in a box set.

Persona 4 will be a 4LP on yellow, grey, silver and black vinyl. It will be housed in a box set.

Persona 5 will be a 4LP on black, silver, red and white colored vinyl. It will be housed in a box set. This is identical to the recent releases of the Persona 5 Essential Edition.

All releases will feature new artwork by Drew Wise and include stickers matching the games.

A slipcase box set featuring all 15 LPs in their respective boxes will also be available for purchase. The box will also be sold separately for people who already own Persona 5.

The full collected box set will also include a certificate of authenticity, which will not be included with the standalone releases.

Persona 1+2 is priced at $90, while Persona 3-5 will be $100 each. The full box set will be $400 and the standalone slipcase box will be $35. They are all scheduled to release in Q3 2022, with a later wave of orders not shipping until sometime in 2023.

The releases can be preordered from iam8bit here. EU folks can also preorder the box set via Black Screen Records here – no individual releases yet, though.
