Shin Megami Tensei and Persona Merch is Here and it's Official
Shin Megami Tensei and Persona finally gets the variety of merchandise it deserves, thanks to a brand new line from Fangamer.
For ages Shin Megami Tensei and Persona fans have been clamoring for some official merch for their favorite franchise and very few have answered the call. Insert Coin has been one of them and that’s restricted to Persona 4 and 5 themed clothing, with Persona 5 plushies coming from Mochibi. But now thanks to Fangamer we finally have the wide berth of merchandise we deserve:
Our official Shin Megami Tensei collection is here!

Not only does it include Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne and Shin Megami Tensei IV items but also in a much more diverse variety of them. There are pins, posters, clothing, button sets, keychains, necklaces, and more. You can check out the full roster of goodies here, with merchandise separated by game. And it’s been confirmed that anything sold out at this time will be restocked at a later date:
Yes! No ETA just yet but if you sign up for a notification on the product page you'll get one email when your size is available again.

Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster will release for PS4 and Nintendo Switch in Japan on October 29th. The remaster will be localized a bit later and come west in Spring 2021. No precise date was shared yet by Atlus West and Sega but we’ll be sure to keep you updated as soon as possible when the announcement rolls around.
Shin Megami Tensei V is also coming soon to Nintendo Switch, with a worldwide simultaneous release planned for 2021. Likely before March 2021. Be sure to check out my detailed analysis of the game’s latest trailer.
You can read our review of Persona 5 Royal written by yours truly, in which I state that “Atlus has packed Persona 5 Royal full of new content that is sure to delight newcomers and even veterans of the original with a far more robust experience.” There’s also our post review discussion featuring myself and Video Manager Mario Rivera as we broke down some of our favorite parts of the game. And be sure to check out Staff Writer David Gill’s editorial detailing why the game reminded him of what he missed about college and why Staff Writer Peter Hunt Szpytek felt this was the game he needed in 2020.
Atlus and Sega have been considering porting their library over to the PC platform for a while, but thanks to the success of Persona 4: Golden earlier this year, it seems as though the publisher is poised for a renewed interest in PC. If you’re interested in reading a more opinionated take on Persona 4 Golden‘s PC iteration, be sure to also check out our review of the port.
