If there are two certainties when it comes to Persona 5, it's that it looks great and sounds great. In fact, Persona 5's occasionally acid-jazz-inspired soundtrack (composed by Shoji Meguro, Toshiki Konishi and Atsushi Kitajoh) is a real highlight, doing an huge amount of heavy lifting when it comes to setting the game's ever-so-slightly seedy, sexy mood.
If you're in the market for a copy of the soundtrack (so you can add a spot of pizzazz to your boring, everyday chores), and you like your vaguely retro music in as retro a form as possible, iam8bit has you covered. The company has just announced that it's releasing two vinyl versions of the Persona 5 soundtrack (one standard, one limited edition) which can be pre-ordered today.
The standard version (which will set you back a not-insubstantial $100, or approximately £77) comes on four vinyl discs and features a selection of tracks culled from Persona 5's 110-strong roster, as curated by Atlas' sound team. The limited edition, meanwhile, contains all 110 tracks split across six discs, but is priced at a whopping $175 (approximately £135). That might be just about justifiable if it looks extremely fancy but iam8bit is sadly yet to reveal the packaging.
If you're hoping to find a cheaper physical version of the soundtrack somewhere, Amazon also tells me that there's an import CD version available for a marginally less wallet draining £57. That will get you three CDs and all 110 tracks featured in the game. You can also get a full digital version of the soundtrack on iTunes in the US which will cost a more reasonable $29.99 (£23). Sadly, a quick glance at iTunes' UK catalogue reveals that Atlas hasn't bothered to release it over here.
