Persona 5: Royal had a great debut in the West. The new version of the 2016 Atlus JRPG arrived loaded with content for the PlayStation 4. Its premiere on March 31 was an event, and it seems that the global crisis caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) did not prevent it from succeeding in the market.
According to the latest SEGA tax report (parent company of Atlus) Persona 5: Royal managed to break sales records after its launch in Europe and the United States. Despite the confinement, the total sales figure for the game was very significant, with digital sales being higher, as expected given the global situation.
SEGA ensures that the proportion of digital sales is increasing in general terms, something that would offset the decrease in physical sales. However, the company has not provided figures for us to measure this Persona 5: Royal milestone, but it is very likely that they will be released in the future.
In Japan, over 400,000 copies (including digital ones) were distributed in just its first month. We also know that he has held relevant positions for some time in the top 10 in the UK. A game that does not go unnoticed and has been classified by many as one of the best JRPG. If you want to see why you have at your disposal our analysis of Persona 5: Royal.
