Atlus announced the JRPG, Shin Megami Tensei V, has sold over one million units on the Nintendo Switch since it released in November 2021.

"Shin Megami Tensei V has sold 1 million units worldwide!" said Atlus via Twitter. "Character Designer Masayuki Doi has created a special illustration to celebrate! Thank you so much for your support!"

Shin Megami Tensei V is the best-selling Megami Tensei game ever, if you don't include the Persona sub-series.

The Megami Tensei series has sold over eight million units worldwide.

Some multiplats have solid pretty well/best on Switch, though I do hope we can see a big overview of the system sales at the end of it to see the Switch effect in full.

That’s pretty decent considering it’s been exclusive to Switch so far.
Leaves the door open for fans of the series to get a bigger and better game in this line of the series one day in the future.

Decent? Those are great numbers.
It's the best selling SMT game.

I was probably trying to compare it to other Switch JRPGs that have been big successes rather than where it stands as far as sales of Shin Megami Tensei. I was excited to see them confident enough to make Soul Hackers 2 as well. That series has always had great potential.

Hopefully more success to come so fans get more options than Persona to enjoy the series.

I've never played a Shin Megami Tensei game, and I wasn't too sure about buying it. But I'm finding it to be one of the most interesting, varied and consistent JRPGs I've ever played. SMT III will be coming soon.

Pretty great numbers. I'm waiting for a price cut on it since i'm not sure it will be for me. I think a lot of people are in the same position
