In Persona 3, you’ll assume the role of a high school student, orphaned as a young boy, who’s recently transferred to Gekkoukan High School on Port Island.

The assault awakens his Persona, Orpheus, from the depths of his subconscious, enabling him to defeat the terrifying foes. He soon discovers that he shares this special ability with other students at his new school. From them, he learns of the Dark Hour, a hidden time that exists between one day and the next, swarming with Shadows. These monsters have been steadily claiming victims aptly nicknamed “The Lost”—people who’ve inexplicably become mindl-5(ess zombies. Under the supervision of school chairman Shuji Ikutsuki, he joins his new companions in confronting this threat to humanity…

So, wait, they're going to include the absolutely atrocious Persona 3 OST, but they refused to include an OST with Monster Kingdom: Jewel Summoner, which had, arguably, superior music?

Also, they shouldn't have included "Shin Megami Tensei" in the title. Long, unnecessary titles do not equal sales unless "Final Fantasy" is in it.

Thanks for the information! Now I can´t wait to buy Persona 3, with both the artbook and the OST. I guess this will be a good reason to save my money.

And about that sorry Heat! But like I say P3 is a good game, and with the Best comes the best!!!

Sadly they have been doing that with every game related to SMT,that comes over here.With Nocturne,I can understand...but adding SMT to Digital Devil Saga,Devil Summoner and now Persona 3.

...it is just getting annoying.But it can't be helped,they will probably continue to do this,regardless if it's annoying to us or not.

This was brought to Atlus NA's attention during the release of DDS, but they are just going to keep going with it.

Atlus USA is content with people feeling like complete fools when trying to buy their products. I don't know about you, but I find it embarrassing having to say "Shin Megami Tensei: [Insert Title]" 3 times before I'm asked to spell it out.

"What? Could you spell that... Is that all one word? We don't sell imports here.".

This is why I only buy their games online now.

I've had that done to me from before,when I was buying Nocturne for the first time,I think.

But I think most of the workers at Gamestop know what I'm talking about as of now,atleast I hope.I already preordered P3,and the only problem they had was just looking for the words "Persona 3",since Shin Megami Tensei was all they could find.

I didn't mind it with Shin Megami Tensei 3, since that's the actual title, but Atlus USA thinks they're creating some brand recognition by adding "Shin Megami Tensei" to every damn game they release, so you wind up with titles like "Shin Megami Tensei Digital Devil Saga" and "Shin Megami Tensei: Kuzunoha Raidou vs the Soulless Army". It's ridiculous.

It is a bit much, but from a marketing perspective it works. Unfortunately for them, the phrase isn't exactly English friendly.

I completely disagree about the soundtrack by the way, but to each their own. At the same time, it's obviously going to be truncated...

It's funny that they took this long to announce all of this. Someone brought to my attention a short time before I took the main site down (and I posted it) that EBGames and Gamestop have listed all of these items for weeks.

I agree, it's a nuisance. I understand the marketing perspective, but being such niche titles (in the US) to begin with, I doubt it has a huge factor in sales. For the sake of being official I added it to the post, but will never refer to DDS or Persona as SMT. If anything, I wouldn't have minded seeing Revelations: Persona 3, but that was dropped by the second title.

As for the soundtrack, what is it comparable to? P2's trance-like soundtrack was among my favorites.

I suppose I'd call it "experimental". It has techno moments, but it also has hip hop and other genres mixed in. People are probably going to love it or hate it. I'm in the former camp.

Yes it does have a type of hip-hop theme to it.
Even in the Reincarnation OST adds more words in the lyrics to the remixed songs from P3,that remind me of some rap songs.

I'm not really a fan of rap or hip-hop myself.

I thought the soundtrack was fine, though I'm partial to 'Blues in Velvet room' and 'Kimi no Kioku.'

Yes they´re good ones, but another good one in my opinion is "Mass Desctruction" anyway! Does anyone of you here, have the lyrics for this song?
