And it deserves every one of those sales and more, which is why I hope it DOES come to Switch so more people can experience it, the Persona team really did make an amazing game!

I think compared to the others in the series it's done very well but I'm not 100% sure about that could be way off. An amazing game though glad I had the pleasure of playing it.

Yes it basically doubled the sales of predecessor, but should/could have done even better.

Remember when games like Persona would be considered niche? Now I don't even know what a niche game is.

It's still a niche IP.
The industry just got a lot bigger.

Very happy to see the growth of this series. Hopefully it continues so that more people try it, rather than just writing it off immediately.

Im happy that this game sold very well, one of my favorite games of all time but damn with the PS4 almost at 100 million units sold world wide you would think it would sell more than just 2.4 million.

That's a whole lot considering golden did 1.25m with a lot of people double dipping.
It's not an open world hiking simulator.

It will pass 3 million on ps4 alone. No need for switch to get pass 3 million.
