You can watch the Persona 5 Royal segment of the Partner Awards below:

Back in July 2020, Atlus reported Persona 5 Scramble The Phantom Strikers had sold 480,000 copies in Japan and Asia, meaning the game has sold at least 20,000 copies more since then. Persona 5 Royal‘s total sales worldwide are currently at 1,4 million. And the Persona series as a whole, since its launch in 1996, sold over 13 million copies worldwide.

Persona 5 Royal was released on October 31, 2019 in Japan on PS4. The Asia version of Persona 5 Royal was released on February 20, 2020. Persona 5 Scramble The Phantom Strikers released in Japan on February 20, 2020, on PS4 and Switch. The Asia version launched a bit after that.

Persona 5 Royal was launched in America and Europe on March 31, 2020. Persona 5 S still wasn’t announced in the West, but will definitely come over at some point.

In case you didn’t read our past coverage, Persona 5 Scramble The Phantom Strikers is a true sequel to Persona 5. While it was developed by Koei Tecmo and Omega Force, it’s not a Musou game and closer to a traditional Action RPG.

Perhaps both P5R and P5S will end up on PC one day as Sega acknowledged a rising interest on PC ports following the success of Persona 4 Golden on Steam.
