Yesterday Sega announced a financial report for the year 2017, where we discovered that the popular RPG series Persona has reached 8.5 million units sold. Persona 5 was the latest game in the series to be released, launching on April 4, getting great feedback from players and press (you can read our review here here), with 1.8 million units shipped since its launch. There's also good news for the Megami Tensei series, which since 1987 has sold about 7.2 million units.

Sega also offered a very detailed report on other important series in its library, including Yakuza, Sonic, Hokuto no Ken, and Etrian Odyssey, which you can take a look at below. Do you think Persona can go on to reach more milestones?

REVIEW. Written by Anders Baad Mai

"The narrative is courageous, the characters complex, the battle system refined, and it's all wrapped up in one of the most stylish games we've ever had the pleasure of getting lost in."
