By Spencer . June 11, 2012 . 1:48pm

P4FPOPS3Atlus is bundling a bonus item with Persona 4: Arena. Reserve the fighting game and you’ll get a Persona 4 Arena arranged soundtrack too. This CD has music rearrangements from Persona 4: Arena’s score. Shoji Meguro reprised his role as Persona’s composter and made the stage themes for the game.


Persona 4: Arena comes out for PlayStation3 and Xbox 360 on August 7.

    How much waste does Atlus make, that Meguro has to pull double duty as composer and whatever the heck a ‘composter’ is?

  • AzureNova

    I love you ATLUS and Shoji Meguro! =^_^=

  • RmanX1000

    This game is swag. And the pre order is cool i guess :P

  • Chow

    Very unspecific about where this is being honored.  Does this mean it’ll be part of all the first-run prints of the game?

    • RmanX1000

      Atlus said on facebook that GameStop, EB Games, and Amazon are definately part of it. Posibly more will be revealed later on.

      • revenent hell

        ah I  just shot amazon an email about them needing to update their info lol only AFTER doing so did it accur to me that they might not be part of it

    • Aoshi00

      Wonder how rare this would be though.. Catherine or KOF13 still have the artbook and soundtrack from Amazon for a long time, it’s bundled together w/ cardboard and plastic wrapper..  I didn’t really plan on getting this on day 1 unless there’s some promo credit (w/ so many new releases like Lollipop Chainsaw, Robotics;Notes, Last Story, Gravity Rush, etc), but now I don’t wanna miss out on the rearranged soundtrack..

  • DongT

    oh atlus you’re so good to me~

  • Herok ♞

    Wow didn’t think they would give me a reason to preorder.

  • joe ling

    Does anyone know where I could here the soundtrack? Need to here it first.

    • RmanX1000

      Youtube is your friend

  • PizzicatoSpirit

    Cool, though I was still going to pre order it whether there was a bonus item or not.

  • Code

    Do want >A<; I've really enjoyed P4A's OST from what I've heard so far. 

  • Sheimi12

    Guys… I have to come clean, I have never played a persona game. a very sad thing indeed…

    Regardless I came here to post that I absolutely adore that art style! every time I see a persona thumbnail I can’t help but love it!

    Who is the artist? I could google it but I might as well ask now that I am typing

    • pothier.adrien

      Soejima Shinegori ^^

    • Sevyne

       Couldn’t be a better time to start than now! Persona is all in your face these days.

    • TheFoolArcana

      Its probably better to play the game before looking up any artwork, unless you want to spoil yourself that is. :P

  • dahuuuundge

    bonus PHYSICAL soundtrack CD with preorder instead of store preorder exclusive digital on disc DLC? I love you Atlus

    • As far as I know when Atlus has added Soundtracks they have always been Physical discs. I still remember the Strange Journey fiasco where someone added the songs on data discs instead of CDs lol at least I got a replacement for it. Anyways any idea if the CD will include the game’s music?

  • Crevox


    • revenent hell

      Composer X Imposter. First thought I had when I read it

  • Shadowman

    WOOOOO!!!! Thank you Atlus me and my wallet are ready for this game.

  • OMG, the music from Arena is truly an masterpiece. Especially dat remix of Reach Out To The Truth and Teddie Casino music.

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    Kind of half and half on it, on one hand glad its coming with a CD…on the other hand the tweet and post from Atlus seemed to indicate just select songs :( so I guess not every song, which is :(

    • Historiata

      Unless it’s a rarity like Persona PSP or Blazblue: Calamity Trigger Limited ed, it never is! Bonuses are bonuses. Otherwise, there’d be no money left for the actual OST sales!

      • XYZ_JolteonZ980

        OSTs which Atlus doesnt sell, or for that matter arent sold in the US?

        • Historiata

           Quit whining and just import them.

  • revenent hell

    Can I just say this is the first fighting game ive been legit hyped for in a super long time.

  • “Shoji Meguro reprised his role as Persona’s composter and made the stage themes for the game.”
    Isn’t Daisuke Ishiwatari (of Guilty Gear / BlazBlue musical fame) working with Meguro on the P4A soundtrack?

    Anyway, was going to preorder this regardless. I love that we’re getting the delicious soundtrack as well, to boot. :D

    • cj_iwakura

      Nope, it’s all Meguro.


    I would have loved a collaboration between Shoji and Daisuke.
    Shame it didn’t happen.

    • cj_iwakura

      The world could not handle that much rock.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Sweeeet. I was planning on pre-ordering with no bonus at all, so this is just lovely.

  • Roberto Armando Iraheta


    I love you forever Atlus. Never change.

  • Misty Dawson

    YES! I was hoping this was coming!

  • Zonic505

    Hoping to hear where I can get the CD & what’ll be on it soon, because I really want to pre-order this.

  • Corey Letcher

    already pre-ordered without expectation of a bonus and get a bonus, cant complain about that.

  • =w= Sweet. I had some of the P4A OST and I like it so far. *pre-orders it with Bonus*

  • Hinataharem

    I had already preordered this before this news. Unexpected, but..

    Yay! I win!

  • Historiata

    What the- You don’t mean to say all those crazy arrangements came out of Shoji Meguro ALONE, do you?

    -> (and the rest of the bgm)

    EDIT: And actually, the theme on the site wasn’t a remix, right? Being technical, but is it only remixes, or are new compositions included as well? Although I suppose that if that were clear, we would already know the tracklist by now…
