    At least there some good from this after Atlus’s little actions.

    Great news!

    I think you made a typo… the November 2016 number should probably be 690K and not 6.9Mil

    • Persona_Central

      As the passage indicates properly, it was reported in November 2016 that the Persona series had achieved 6.9 million copies sold worldwide since its inception.

        Oh, the Persona series, right. My bad. It was sandwiched between two P5 paragraphs so I misread ^_^”

  • Lusankya

    So nearly one million for the West plus China. It’s hard to tell how many copies were sold in China, but I guess around 600k in Europe+US? Maybe Atlus USA and deep SIlver can give us some detailed numbers later.

  • Of course! <3

    Does anybody know why the Protagonist theme isn’t available for ps4 on psn in europe? Really want that one.

  • Johnnie

    So that would make this the most successful Persona to date, correct? I remember reading P4G was just north of 1 million in total sales.

    The best part here is the live concert in Aug 2. I need to hear a last surprise live ver.
