Sega Sammy has released the company’s Fiscal Year Ending March 2023 second quarter (consisting of July, August, September 2022) financial results today. As with previous earnings reports, Sega has an outline for specific game series which notably performed during that quarter, including Persona.
According to the financial results, the Persona series sold approximately 230k units worldwide (including digital and physical sales) in July, August, and September 2022. This makes for a total of 500k copies sold of the Persona series this fiscal year, with 270k sold in April, May and June 2022.
As reported in May 2022, the Persona series had achieved 1.3 million copies sold from the beginning of April 2021 to the end of March 2022.
The main Persona titles responsible for the FY 2023 Q2 sales have not been listed. In the past few earnings reports, they’ve typically consisted of:
- Persona 4 Golden (June 2020)
- Persona 5 Royal (October 2019)
- Persona 5 (September 2016)
- Persona 5 Strikers (February 2020)
The release of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax remastered in March 2022 would also be a factor.
The recent release of the remastered version of Persona 5 Royal would not factor into these numbers, as it was released in the third quarter of this fiscal year.
Previous Persona Sales Milestones
Recently, with Sega Sammy’s Japanese Annual Integrated Report 2022, it was confirmed that the Persona series has sold approximately 15.5 million units worldwide as of March 2022. 7.22 million units of those sales are solely from the Persona 5 sub-series, and 77% of the sales come from the overseas market.
