iam8bit is excited to today announce its latest collaboration with ATLUS, just in time to celebrate Persona’s 25th anniversary. The Persona 25th Anniversary Deluxe Box Set is a stunning package that’s easily the most ambitious project in iam8bit’s 16-year history and will be available for pre-order on December 14th, 2021 iam8bit.com. The albums are scheduled to arrive in Q3 2022.
The collection bundles together more than eight-and-a-half hours of ATLUS Sound Team’s newly remastered music from Persona 1, 2 (Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment), 3, 4, and 5. Each of the 15 LPs is pressed on colored vinyl and themed to each Persona — with art from the incomparable Drew Wise, who collaborated with iam8bit on earlier Persona vinyl releases. Since personalization has long been a touchstone in Persona, each game-specific box is customizable using included sets of unique stickers. The entire collection slides into a beautiful slipcase, which celebrates the iconic series’ 25th anniversary with additional art from Drew.
This is truly a journey through genre and time, ranging from Persona 1’s memorable dungeon themes and Persona 2’s head-bopping beats to Persona 3’s unique hip-hop stylings and Persona 4’s familiar retro-pop, crescendoing with Persona 5’s famous acid jazz.
The Persona 25th Anniversary Deluxe Box Set is $400, and fans can also purchase each entry within the collection individually. Persona 1-2 are bundled together and will sell for $89.99. Persona 3, 4, and 5 are priced at $100 apiece. People who purchased one of iam8bit’s previously released Persona 5 soundtracks can buy the individual boxes and the slipcase to house the full set, so they won’t miss out on the celebration
