Persona 5 Royal Has Achieved “Record Sales” In the West – Sega

The Phantom Thieves have stolen a lot of hearts, it seems.

Being a re-release (albeit a heavily expanded one) of a three year old game that is also exclusive to a system that is very close to the end of its life cycle should logically have led to less than stellar sales for Persona 5 Royal, but it seems that hasn’t been the case- at least in western markets.

During a Q&A with investors for their recent quarterly financial briefing (via Persona Central), Atlus’ parent company Sega confirmed that the highly acclaimed JRPG has sold rather well in the west since it launched at the end of March. Although they did not provide exact figures, they did say that it achieved “record sales” in western markets, while also stating that though physical sales were restricted – which is understandable, given all the lockdowns around the world – digital sales for the title actually went up.

Persona 5 Royal released for the PS4 on March 31, and we gave it a glowing review, calling it “the definitive way of playing one of the greatest games ever made.” You can read the full review through here.
