Persona 5-2 in all but name, it's been confirmed Persona 5 Strikers has sold two million units worldwide. It's unclear whether PS Plus redemptions from January 2022 count towards the milestone, but producer Daisuke Kaneda is still pleased with the achievement.
On the Persona Channel, he said: "This work P5S was released on February 20, 2020. At the time, I said that it was rare to have so many "2"s, but thanks to everyone, we were able to welcome a new "2". P5S has sold over 2 million copies worldwide...I couldn't be happier. I would like to thank so many people for their support: thank you very much." The story of the Phantom Thieves then continues next week in Persona 5 Tactica.
Persona 5 Strikers released for PS4 in February 2021 (western launch) to widespread praise, switching up the turn-based RPG combat of the original for an action focus. We awarded the game an 8/10 and shared praise for its combat system, boss fights, and memorable character moments. "Persona 5 Strikers is a fantastic follow up to a beloved JRPG, carving out its own identity with an excellent action-based combat system. It presents the perfect excuse to hang out with the Phantom Thieves one last time, and does a great job of building upon the established characters and themes of its predecessor," we concluded.
As the title sells two million copies, Kaneds signs out saying: "Once again, thank you so much to everyone who supported us!" Were you one of those two million buyers? Let us know in the comments below.
