Atlus has announced that Persona 5 has scored some big numbers since it was released earlier this year. The company has released current sales numbers that ring in with over 2 million copies sold worldwide for both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4.
The game has also scored some prestigious “The Game Awards 2017” nominations including Game of the Year, Best Art Direction, Best Score/Music and Best Role-playing Game.
“This has been an incredible year for our company, one that represents our ambitions for Japanese games in the west,” said Naoto Hiraoka, president & CEO of Atlus U.S.A., Inc.. “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.”
