Sales above expectations in the West
In a financial meeting with SEGA Sammy Holdings investors, executives said Persona 5 Royal had exceeded initial sales expectations in Europe and the United States. It happened during a question-and-answer period, where executives argued that the improved version of the fifth installment has managed to break “sales records.” According to the report, “although physical format sales were limited” by the coronavirus crisis (distribution was affected), the digital sales ratio increased significantly.
SEGA intends to continue maintaining the rhythm of sales in western territory. Still, the title developed by Atlus has not met the sales estimates in Japan, at least initially.
Persona 5 Royal is an improved version of the original title released on PlayStation 4 back in 2017. Not only does it include new storylines, but it also has playable additions.
