A Peek Inside The Shin Megami Tensei IV Art & Sound Collection

By Spencer . March 15, 2013 . 4:00pm

Remember the mini art book and sound collection combo Atlus gave away as a bonus for getting Catherine at launch? Shin Megami Tensei IV is getting a similar bonus.


In Japan, launch copies of Shin Megami Tensei IV include a sound & art collection.

The soundtrack CD has eight tracks:

Prelude I
Prelude II
Prelude III
Hallucination I
Hallucination II


These songs were on the Shin Megami Tensei IV site and four of them are from the Cathedral of Shadows which has music recorded from a pipe organ. The art book has 12 pages to flip through.


Shin Megami Tensei IV comes out on May 23 in Japan.

    Is it normal for launch soundtracks to have so few songs on them?

    • puchinri

      For preorder bonuses, it is anymore. (If that’s what you meant, not completely sure~.)

      I really do believe at least a few used to be quite longer, but they’ve become very short over the years (maybe to encourage sales of the actual OSTs).

      For art & sound bonuses yes.

    • Wondering_Zero

      Yes, often times a preorder soundtrack is sort of like a sample for the official OST that’ll be released at a later time.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      At least stateside, both Atlus and NISA are quite upfront when the music disk included is not the official ST. They will call it a sampler or music/selections from.

        Sometimes. I’ve got the CD that came with P4A right in front of me, which Atlus labeled “Original Arranged Soundtrack.” It’s only got six songs.

        • MCoelho

          Well, the tracks were all different versions of the six original songs. I would’ve liked if the song “Now i know” was on the CD though

    I hope when SMTIV comes here we get something similar.
