Persona Series Moves Over 700,000 Units in Q2 FY2024
Approximately 750,000 units were sold for the Persona series between July 1 to September 30, 2023. This brings the franchise’s total number of copies sold to 1.38 million for fiscal year ending in March 2024. No new Persona titles were released in Q2 FY2024, so the latest data consists of repeat sales (i.e. Persona 3 Portable, Persona 4 Golden, and Persona 5 Royal)
SEGA Sammy reiterates that total sales of the Persona 5 series are currently at over nine million units. Moreover, the company notes that titles released in the previous fiscal year are still performing well. For example, the Persona 5 Royal remaster is experiencing strong repeat sales in Asia. SEGA plans to launch the service of Persona 5: The Phantom X, which was licensed out to Perfect World. Regions and a release date have not been determined yet, however.
The next major Persona release for the current fiscal year is Persona 5 Tactica. Following Persona 5 Tactica’s release, SEGA and ATLUS will release the highly anticipated Persona 3 remake, Persona 3 Reload, on February 2, 2024. These titles are expected to be increase sales by a notable amount.
