The latest Persona game released in Japan was Persona 5 on September 15, 2016 for the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation 4. No new Persona game has been announced for the future, however there have been hints of one upcoming.

    Just a heads-up here: the PS3 and PS4 figures for Persona 5’s first week sales should be flipped. Doesn’t make sense when taking the LTD sales into account.

    But anyways, looks like the Persona series is doing well. Can’t wait to see how the sales in NA/EU will turn out.

    • Persona_Central

      Thanks. The FW sales for Persona 5 somehow got confused in the software I used, so it should be fixed in the graph now.
