Persona 5 Royal, the enhanced remake of the original RPG, was released for the PS4 in the West last week on March 31, 2020. According to European sales tracker GfK Chart-Track, Persona 5 Royal ranked 5th among the top 10 best selling games in the United Kingdom for the past week (ending on April 4th).
The retail sales tracked are only physical, so these rankings don’t include digital downloads. Despite the nationwide lockdown, GamesIndustry reports that physical video games sales have actually increased in the UK.
