Featured songs include “Burn My Dread,” “Mass Destruction,” and “The Battle for Everyone’s Souls.” Music from the PlayStation 2 role-playing game is composed by Shoji Meguro.

The visually enhanced port of Persona 3 Portable is currently available for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Series X|S consoles, along with Windows through Steam.

From the product page:
Over 25 years, Persona has done its share of experimentation, but it’s easy to point to Persona 3 as the title most pivotal to the musical evolution of the series. In this seminal third entry, we hear an identifiably iconic style developing, where genres blend together to create a uniquely vibey audio cocktail.

Here, it’s a helping of R&B, a dash of lite hip-hop and an overall glaze of melancholy — which, oh so charmingly matches with the game’s premise of impending darkness harkening the end of the world. Fan favorite bangers include “Burn My Dread,” “Mass Destruction,” and “The Battle for Everyone’s Souls,” and other similarly forebodingly named tracks, all housed in a custom, premium box that pairs perfectly with each of the other iam8bit x Atlus releases in the Persona vinyl collection.
