Persona 5 continues to steal the hearts of fans in Japan. Via its Persona Channel blog, Atlus announced the game has shipped a total of 550,000 copies, including both physical and digital versions. The game debuted Sept. 15 to strong reviews.
Persona 5’s debut sales have made it the fastest-selling game in the series, exceeding the numbers sold with Persona 3 og Persona 4’s debuts combined. Siliconera also suggests many Persona 5 buyers bought the new PS4 Slim, helping to boost Japan’s PS4 console sales up to 96,433 for the week.
For at fejre Persona 5’s early success, Atlus will release two new costume sets in Japan Oct. 5, Gematsu reports. The first of these is the Swimsuit bundle, which allows the Phantom Thieves to wear their beach attire even during dungeon crawls. (Unfortunately, none of these ensembles repeats Akihiko’s dashing “speedo with modest t-shirt” combo from P3.)
Beach attire for the cast of ‘Persona 5.’
Fans of Atlus’s cult-hit romantic drama / puzzler Catherine will be delighted by the second DLC pack, the “Catherine Costume & BGM Special Set.” It includes the “Adults Who’ve Lost Their Way Costumes” and “Catherine ‘Nightmare’ BGM & Battle Single,” along with an exclusive Lambs’ Pillow equippable accessory item. It will be available free of charge from Oct. 5 – 10, and cost 800 yen after that period.
The ‘Catherine’-themed DLC, free in Japan for a limited time.
