After years of waiting, fans finally got their hands on Shin Megami Tensei V on the Switch last November, and it was worth the wait. While Atlus' latest JRPG was warmly received by fans and critics alike, the publisher's now confirmed that it sold sold fairly well, thanking fans for their continued support.
According to Famitsu (translated by Persona Central), Atlus revealed that Shin Megami Tensei V sales had reached 800,000 worldwide. To celebrate, they released an image of series mascot Jack Frost and tiger demon Byakko, since 2022 is the year of the tiger.
Shin Megami Tensei V Sells Over 800k Copies Worldwide
Here is the full statement from Atlus:
Happy New Year! In November 2021, “Shin Megami Tensei V” was simultaneously worldwide, and it got off to a good start, selling over 800k copies in total. Thank you very much for your support. 2022 will start with the remastered version of P4U2 (Persona 4 Arena Ultimax) in March and the release of 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim for the Nintendo Switch in April.
We are also preparing a surprise new title that has not yet been announced. Also, the 25th anniversary of “Persona,” which started last year, will enter a new phase. Please look forward to it!
Shin Megami Tensei V was Atlus' first major exclusive for the Switch, though the company has previously ported older titles like Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne and Catherine. Fans can get Shin Megami Tensei V on the Switch now, with Persona 4 Arena Ultimax coming to the system - alongside PS4 and PC - on March 17.
