Good job, Phantom Thieves.

Will Ring Fit Adventure reach the million in Japan, I wonder? It's almost at 700k right now...

Definitely by the end of the year, if both shortages are dealt with and a discount around the holidays is done.

Surprised PS4 version dominated considering how popular Switch is in Japan. But overall these sales for P5 Scramble are quite poor imo.


Ljink96 (on 26 February 2020)

Persona has more brand recognition on Playstation...I don't think it's surprising that this would be the result. Sales, including digital will probably be over 200K which isn't bad for a warriors spinoff FW. Worldwide sales will be more interesting I hope.

Now I wonder how well would Switch version of Persona 5 Royal sell, given it's probably in the making as we speak.

I don't think this site could handle the amount of saltiness if there's an announcement of Persona 5 Royal switch version

Yeah, just like you don't see Nintendo fans getting so worked over the possibility of a port announcement

Pinkie_pie (on 27 February 2020)

Maybe thats because the games that were rumored of being ported to ps4 werent nearly as popular as persona 5. No one cared about wonderful 101. Besides, i hardly see playstation fans dont beg for ports

Someone crying about the lack of a Persona 5 port.. is complaining about people that may cry if a persona 5 port ever comes. I love the irony.
Imagine if the switch gets Persona 5.. but not Persona 5 royal. Fantastic.

People getting sensitive and overprotective about anything related to persona 5 coming to switch is something so entertaining to watch, I could care less if the game is coming or not. It will be way funnier if it happens, but so far you guys are giving a quite show. Congrats
