Persona 3 Reload, the full remake of the classic RPG Persona 3, has hit an impressive sales milestone. According to Atlus, it has now become the fastest-selling game in the company’s history, surpassing one million units sold in its first week. This is no doubt due to the success of Persona 5 in bringing the franchise to mainstream attention.
Atlus reported that Persona 3 Reload hit one million copies sold in seven days, making it not only the fastest-selling Persona game but the fastest-selling game in the company’s history of releases. It’s hard to deduce how well this stacks up to Persona 5 as that game released a few months earlier in Japan before launching worldwide in 2017. Sales for Persona 5 only seemed to pick up after the game’s critical success and mainstream breakthrough.
Steam provides a description and breakdown of Persona 3 Reload:
“Step into the shoes of a transfer student thrust into an unexpected fate when entering the hour “hidden” between one day and the next. Awaken an incredible power and chase the mysteries of the Dark Hour, fight for your friends, and leave a mark on their memories forever. Persona 3 Reload is a captivating reimagining of the genre-defining RPG, reborn for the modern era.”
