The Persona series has been one that’s slowly been creeping its way to mainstream ever since the direction the series took with Persona 3 to focusing on character drama and social links. Persona 5 really blew the hinges off the door, however, and it and the Royal re-release greatly exceeded expectations. It seems that’s had a company wide effect as well.

Atlus recently released their fiscal year end report that ended March 2020. All three games that were released during that time period exceeded the company’s expectations, and that includes the aforementioned Persona 5 Royal, Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers, the highly regarded spin-off that is yet to be announced for the west, and 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim, the Vanillaware title that was recently confirmed for a western release.

Though the company exceeded all sales target and contributed to parent company Sega’s profits, they did report a net loss of 423.8 million yen (roughly $4 million USD). But that is down significantly from last year’s net loss of 904 million yen, so ultimately it’s still positive (The report was transcribed and translated by Persona Central).

Persona 5 Royal released earlier this year, and 13 Sentinels will release on September 8th for PS4. As of yet, there’s no word on when Persona 5 Scramble will leave Japan. The next release from the company is the Switch version of Catherine: Full Body in July.
