Sega Sammy has released their Fiscal Year Ending March 2022 first quarter (consisting of April, May, and June 2021) financial results today. As with the results for last fiscal year, 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 400k units worldwide (including digital and physical sales) in April, May, and June 2021.

As reported in May 2021, the Persona series had achieved 3 million copies sold from March 2020 to March 2021.

Unlike last year, the main Persona titles responsible for the FY 2022 Q1 sales have not been listed. For the quarters last fiscal year, the games were typically:
