Persona 5 Strikers, or P5S, was released on February 20, 2020. At that time, we talked about how unusual it was to have so many ‘2’s. But thanks to all of you, we were able to welcome a new ‘2’.
P5S has sold over 2 million copies worldwide… I couldn’t be happier. I would like to thank so many people for their support. Thank you very much.
Recently, I have had the opportunity to watch playthrough videos of P5S. Every time I see various people laughing or being moved by this game, I feel truly grateful that we were able to make P5S.
I believe it’s the passion and skills of everyone at Koei Tecmo Games, ω-Force, and the hard work of the Atlus members who walked this path together that led to this result.
As we approach the release of Persona 5 Tactica, Joker’s battle continues. Both I and the staff involved in this title take pride in this result and we will continue to do our best.
Once again, thank you to everyone who supported us!!
