Persona 5 Royal Has Sold Over 1.4 Million Copies Worldwide; Series Sales at 13 Million
Thanks to its increased popularity in the West, Persona 5 Royal reached an impressive sales milestone that pushes the series' sales further.
Thanks to the success of Persona 5 and its recently-released enhanced edition, Persona 5 Royal, the long-running JRPG series has seen tremendous success around the world. This is especially the case in the West, as the series has continued to grow in popularity from its Japanese roots and found an audience in other parts of the world, which in turn has translated to impressive new sales milestones for the series so far.
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.
To commemorate the sales milestone, Atlus released a special piece of Persona 5 artwork on their Twitter account that you can find below:

Alongside Persona 5 Royal‘s sales, additionally Atlus detailed that Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers–the series’ Musou-style spinoff–has surpassed 480,000 copies sold in Japan and Asia, while the recently-released PC version of Persona 4 Golden has reached over 500,000 copies sold through Steam worldwide. At the moment, Persona 5 Scramble hasn’t had a Western release announcement just yet, but hopefully we won’t have to wait too much longer to see when the action-based title will make its way to the US, Europe, and other Western markets.
As someone that recently came to the Persona series several years ago, it’s impressive to see how much the series’ popularity has grown this generation and gained wider attention. As one of the best RPGs released in this generation, it’s no surprise that Persona 5 Royal has managed to garner acclaim from around the world, and hopefully we’ll get to see even more from the series for its fans worldwide.
Persona 5 Royal is available now exclusively for PS4.
