Persona 5 continues to perform exceedingly well, which should come as a surprise to absolutely no one. According to Atlus parent company Sega's latest financial results, the game has in fact topped more than two million units shipped worldwide. That's a lot of hearts being stolen around the globe.
Persona 5 first launched on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 in April 2017, and it had already reached two million shipments in November 2017. Persona 5 was chosen as our Best PlayStation 4 Game of 2017 as well, which is very high praise.
As the first current-gen Persona game on PlayStation 4, it managed to single-handedly revitalize the genre with its engaging combination of dating sim and the familiar elements of Persona games past. It's one of the greatest Persona titles to date, yes, even better than Persona 4.
The Persona series has set itself apart from its JRPG brethren with it's hip, modern styling, and Persona 5 takes this to a new level. The interface has the same straightforward selections and informational styling as previous titles, but this time around Atlus has leveraged the power of the PlayStation 4 to make the entire affair much more dynamic feeling. It's all that and a bag of chips, as the kids say. They don't say that? They say it's "on fleek?" My bad. It's on fleek.
Here's hoping Persona 6 gets a swift release, because there's only so much waiting fans can take for a new iteration. They're awesome games, guys. No wonder they sell so well.
