Persona 5 Fan Poster Shows the Duality of Real World Versus Metaverse
A talented Persona 5 fan artist recently created a most creative poster showing the dual nature of the real world versus the Metaverse.
Persona 5 fans as always show off both their dedication and incredible talent in spades and this latest piece of art is no exception. Artist SNIP●SNIP created a gorgeous fan poster of Ren Amamiya in his school uniform and Morgana in cat form. Below them and reversed are their forms when they enter the Metaverse:
The concept itself, the artwork, and the attention to detail are all absolutely stunning and I hope we continue to see more of this level of work in the future. For those interested below is the full sized version of the poster, which you can also buy directly from the artist on Redbubble:
Atlus has revealed that Persona 5 Royal’s worldwide sales have officially reached over 1.4 million copies sold since it was first released in Japan in October 2019, followed by its Western launch this past March. Additionally, Atlus also highlighted that the series’ total lifetime sales to date have reached over 13 million copies sold around the world.
According to previous reports, Persona 5 Royal (the updated re-release of the original Persona 5) shipped over 400K copies in its first month in Japan. Royal also topped the sales charts in both Taiwan and South Korea. Plus, it was in the top ten for both the UK and US charts during its opening weeks.
Back in February of this year I was able to sit down with the head of Atlus West PR, Arianne Advincula, for a quick interview. We discussed the challenges faced working with a game that has already been released in Japan, changes in the English localization between the original P5 and Royal, how streaming policies have been handled since its launch in the West, the EFIGS localization, and more.
Just recently it was announced that Persona 5 the Animation will be getting a full Blu-ray boxset release this September. Also included is a new English dub featuring the original voice cast.
You can read our review of Persona 5 Royal written by yours truly, in which I state that “Atlus has packed Persona 5 Royal full of new content that is sure to delight newcomers and even veterans of the original with a far more robust experience.” There’s also our post review discussion featuring myself and Video Manager Mario Rivera as we broke down some of our favorite parts of the game. And be sure to check out Staff Writer David Gill’s editorial detailing why the game reminded him of what he missed about college.
