Persona 5 Royal’s re-release has already sold a million copies

For years, ever since it was first released back in 2016, fans of the Persona series have been asking for Persona 5 to come to systems other than the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Finally, half a decade later Persona 5 Royal was released for Xbox, PC and Switch. This move seems to have been the right one, as the re-release of Persona 5 Royal has already sold one million copies.

Making the announcement on Twitter, developer ATLUS revealed that “The latest release of Persona 5 Royal has already sold one million units! Thank you to fans worldwide for all of your support!”

As mentioned, Persona 5 originally released back in 2016 (2017 in the West) exclusively for PlayStation systems. Then in 2019 (2020 in the West), Persona 5 Royal was brought to market – though again, only for PlayStation.

Finally, after years of waiting, Persona 5 Royal came to PC, Xbox consoles and Switch (as well as PS5) in the 3rd week of October 2022. To see Persona 5 Royal sell so well in such a short amount of time is impressive (especially since it also came to Game Pass), and hopefully means that future titles will release across multiple platforms from the get-go – though we will have to wait and see.
