As you can see, Persona 5 managed to snag the top spot in the midst of some stiff competition. What makes it an impressive feat is not only did it manage to help Atlus get its first #1 in the UK charts, but this makes it the first JRPG to take the top spot in the UK after Ni no Kuni back in 2013 for PlayStation 3.
Final Fantasy XV came close, but no cigar, as it placed #2 behind the massively popular FIFA 17. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, while not exactly a “JRPG,” charted at #2, just behind Horizon Zero Dawn back in March.
Persona 5 is available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
