Well, How Did Persona 4 And Devil Survivor Sell?


image Shin Megami Tensei is on the rise, but how popular is the series overseas? Atlus revealed sales figures for games released from August 2008 to July 2009 in their latest financial report.


Here’s how the two MegaTen titles did in North America.


North America
Persona 4 (PS2) – 110,000 (150,000 expected)
Devil Survivor (DS) – 40,000 (25,000 expected)


We also have sales data for Japan, but since Persona 4 was released there on July 10, 2008 that number is from last year’s report. Considering Persona 4 came out between two fiscal periods it’s probably different and just here for a rough comparison between regions.


Persona 4* (PS2) – 300,000 (180,000 expected)
Devil Summoner 2 (PS2) – 180,000 (120,000 expected)
Devil Survivor (DS) – 110,000 (100,000 expected)
Persona (PSP) – 160,000 (50,000 expected)
Growlanser (PSP) – 50,000 (40,000 expected)


Whoa, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona exceeded Atlus’ projections three times over.
