Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight and Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight will be getting a OST release in June, with both a standard and limited edition version.
Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight and Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight, which came out last November for PS Vita and PS4, will be seeing an official soundtrack release on June 24th of this year. According to the tweet from the official Japanese Persona account, there will a standard edition and a limited edition called the “Advanced CD Collector’s Box”:

The standard edition is two CDs and will include tracks from both P3D and P5D, including the full version of the opening songs. It also includes the full versions of the remixes that were sold as DLCs such as “Let’s Go! Phoenix Ranger Featherman,” “Tanaka’s Amazing Commodities (ATLUS Kozuka Remix),” etc. Moreover, it’ll include brand new remix songs specifically made for this OST release by Ryota Kozuka (Atlus).
The “Advanced CD Collector’s Box” limited edition will feature everything from the normal edition plus four more OST CDs, the same four CDs that were included in the games’ limited edition in Japan. It also comes with a Blu-ray with video footage of the “Persona Show Case Shijou Saikyou no Shimai Genka” concert event held on May 18th 2018 in Japan, before the games released there on May 24th, 2018.
For those trying to amass a full collection, you’ll only get every single track in both games by buying the limited edition of the OST or by buying the normal edition OST if you already own the Japanese limited edition of the games themselves. As a reference, here’s what the Japanese limited edition set looked like (located at the bottom):
Back in February of this year I was able to sit down with the head of Atlus West PR, Arianne Advincula, for a quick interview. We discussed the challenges faced working with a game that has already been released in Japan, changes in the English localization between the original P5 and Royal, how streaming policies have been being handled since its launch in the West, the EFIGS localization, and more.
Be sure to check out our reviews for both Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight and Persona 3: Dancing in Moonlight, which both reviewers enjoyed. You can also 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 break down some of our favorite parts of the game.
