Persona 5 Strikers has done pretty well for itself. The action RPG, which launched back in February here in the West, has surpassed 1.3 million copies sold. Atlus had previously reported that Strikers hit 500,000 copies sold in Asia by the end of last year, so its Western release probably accounts for the majority of sales.
It helps, of course, that Persona 5 Strikers isn't just some lopsided spinoff. In our Persona 5 Strikers review, we called it "a fantastic follow up to a beloved JRPG", praising a fun combat system, cool character moments, and, of course, a stellar soundtrack. We concluded: "While we doubt that Strikers will be remembered anywhere near as fondly as Persona 5, the game goes beyond expectations to provide a classy companion piece. A must-buy for existing fans."
And with that in mind, it's nice to see that Strikers has left a mark. Are you a fellow fan of the Phantom Thieves? Plan your next heist in the comments section below.
