Persona 5 is a certified hit for Atlus, as the company has announced that over 1.5 million copies have been shipped worldwide. We know that around 550,000 units were sold in Japan when it released last year, so that means roughly one million copies have been distributed around the rest of the globe. Given that the title's already starting to sell out, it's safe to assume that most of these units are already in consumers' hands.
It's a great number for a niche game, which will surely rise to two million units and beyond over the course of the year. Have you contributed to this statistic? Steal our heart in the comments section below.
