Sega Sammy’s Japanese Annual Integrated Report for 2022 is now available, providing sales numbers for its various IPs from April 1st, 2021, to March 31st, 2022. It revealed that the Persona series sold 15.5 million units worldwide.
The “multifaceted rollout” for the series includes toys, pachislot and pachinko machines, packaged titles, digital titles and so on. While this represents a difference of 500,000 sales from the fiscal year ending March 2021, the Persona 5 series is worth noting. Its four titles – Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight, Persona 5, Persona 5 Royal, and Persona 5 Strikers – have sold 7.22 million units cumulatively.
They make up 46.6 percent of the franchise’s total sales, with 77 percent generated by overseas consumers. Since Persona 5 Royal recently released for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS5, PC, and Nintendo Switch, sales could be even higher heading into next year. It was last reported to have sold 1.8 million units as of June 2021.
