Persona 5 Ships 1.5M Copies Worldwide

Publisher and developer Atlus announced that Persona 5 – their latest entry in the stylish JRPG series – has shipped over 1.5M copies worldwide. This follows on from the game’s release in western territories last week.

While copies shipped to retailers doesn’t represent units sold over the counter, the figure is an impressive milestone for the once-niche RPG series. It’s also indicative of increased public interest.

Atlus haven’t divulged how many of those shipped units went to European and North American territories. As Polygon reports, Persona 5 shipped 550,000 copies in Japan when it launched there in September 2016.

Persona 4 Golden previously held Atlus’ record for most-shipped game in the series. The 2013 Vita game shipped 700,000 copies globally.

They were strict with spoilers, if you don't want something spoiled it's easy to avoid it.

This post has nothing to do with the streaming stuff.


On topic: those are some great figures. Glad to see P5 getting the recognition it deserves, it's an incredible game.

All my posts are to do with the games on topic man, mixed in a random dose of relative internet culture.
This is a base case and if it doesn't make sense at first, you probably haven't internet'd hard enough for the game/topic.

Yeah, found the same thing. JB only got in 2 copies and both were presales. They said headquarters were not risking providing shelf copies. Bit of a shame, as there is no price competition. $120 at EB games or nothing.
