iam8bit brings Persona fans a killer 25th Anniversary Deluxe Box set, showcasing the series’ iconic soundtracks to celebrate the major milestone.
It’s been 25 years since the first installment of the Persona franchise released. This means that it sees its 25th anniversary in 2021, marking a huge moment for ATLUS‘s major role-playing game franchise.
Now, to really make Persona‘s 25th anniversary special, iam8bit took on their most ambitious collaboration to date.
iam8bit specializes in creating video game collectibles, from figures to vinyl to apparel. They, along with developer ATLUS, have curated the ultimate vinyl deluxe set for Persona music super-fans.
EVERYTHING IN THE PERSONA 25TH ANNIVERSARY DELUXE BOX SET
Altogether, the complete collection contains over eight-and-a-half hours of recently remastered tracks from Persona 1, 2 (Innocent Sin and Eternal Punishment), 3, 4, and 5. Pressed on stylish colored vinyl with art from Drew Wise, every LP is specially coordinated with their corresponding Persona game.
Wise, who previously worked with iam8bit on other Persona vinyl releases, will also provide art for the collection’s cases. Bright, eye-catching, and full of personality, the collection’s artist is truly dedicated to celebrating the style that makes Persona so iconic.
Additionally, each of the game-specific boxes will be customizable, using unique sticker sets contained within the collection. That, combined with sleek slip cases, make this Persona 25th Anniversary Box collection a true work of art.
Overall, with the full breadth of Persona 1‘s catchy themes to Persona 5‘s funky club jazz, this truly is the ultimate musical celebration.
