It’s hard to argue the influence of music on the appeal of the Persona series. Ever since the debut of the Shin Megami Tensei spinoff in 1996, the soundtrack accompanying each game has been as memorable as the characters, enough to warrant entire dancing games centered on the work of composer Shogi Meguro.
Sega and Atlus have officially released multiple Persona albums on Spotify, and they are now available for you to listen as much as you desire. The usual suspects are here, including the original soundtracks for Persona 3, Persona 4, and Persona 5.
Hardcore fans will not come away disappointed, as the collection also includes some deeper cuts. You’ll find the Sound Collections for Persona 2: Innocent Sin and Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, vocal collections for Persona 3 and Persona 4, and the albums for the MUSIC FES 2013 and SUPER LIVE 2015 concerts. The original Revelations: Persona and the PSP remake, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona, are unfortunately absent, but given the wealth of content now easily accessible on Spotify, it’s hard to complain.
Atlus and Sega are in full hype mode with the imminent release of Persona 5: Strikers in the United States. The musou/RPG crossover collaboration with Koei Tecmo’s Omega Force will release on PlayStation 4, PC, and Switch, marking the first time a Persona game has launched on a Nintendo console the same day as other platforms. The game has already sold over half a million copies in Asia, receiving a 36/40 from Weekly Famitsu magazine. The protagonist of Persona 5, Joker, is also currently available as a downloadble character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
