Unlike the still ongoing Persona 5 manga (a straight retelling of events in the original game starring protagonist Akira Kurusu), Persona 5: Mementos Mission features protagonist Ren Amamiya tackling original side stories along with his allies. Said manga began its serialization on October 27, 2018.
Sega hasn’t released a clear sales figure for Persona 5 Royal as of yet. However, we do know a few things from previous reports. In its first month in Japan, the game had shipped over 400K copies. 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 being handled since its launch in the West, the EFIGS localization, and more.
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.
