It has been revealed that the newly released JRPG Persona 5 has shipped 5 million copies. Shipments are not copies sold to customers but to retailers, but it is based on the demand as well.
The game has been released on the PS3 and PS4 and not on the other platforms so this is an impressive achievement. The reviews for the game have been absolutely stunning so far with the game sitting pretty at 94 Metacritic.
Not many JRPGs can boast of such a score as Final Fantasy XV has a Metacritic of just 82 and it’s a bigger budget game.
It remains to be seen how much the game will sell over its lifetime but based on the reviews and word of mouth, we could be looking at 5 million sales.
Stay tuned for our review of the game soon. Persona 5 won’t be on the PC or Nintendo Switch.
