One of the best games of 2017, Persona 5, has just hit a new sales milestone. Atlus has announced today that worldwide sales for Persona 5 on PS4 and PS3 have surpassed more than 2 million. Since the game released earlier this year Persona 5 has earned critical acclaim from gamers and media as well as a ton of awards.
Persona 5 has also been nominated in four categories for “The Game Awards 2017” which are being held in Los Angeles CA on December 7. Those categories include Game of the Year, Best Art Direction, Best Score/Music and Best RPG.
President & CEO of Atlus USA had this to say about Persona 5.
This has been an incredible year for our company, one that represents our ambitions for Japanese games in the west. We are in the middle of experiencing tremendous growth, both in the west and abroad, and the sales of Persona 5 represent a new level of expectation for fans of the genre. Once seen as niche, Persona 5 is one of the most important titles this year, proving interest in this category is expanding. We look forward to delivering more incredible games to our fans next year.
