Atlus has announced landmark sales numbers for its latest Shin Megami Tensei game on Switch, boasting a total of seven new numbers for copies sold. Shin Megami Tensei V has officially sold over one million copies worldwide.
The news comes from a tweet on the Altus_West Twitter account, which drops huge sales for the JRPG Switch exclusive. The tweet only states that the one million figure represents total worldwide sales but does not break down the number into units sold for each region.

The turning point of the year brings news about SMTV climbing to the top of the movie sales chart When Atlus announced that it sold 800,000 copies and it has only sold steadily since then. The previous entry, 2014’s Shin Megami Tensei IV on the 3DS, sold more than 600,000 copies, an impressive number for a franchise that hasn’t quite been a hit. On the other hand, SMTV still has a small way to go to catch up with Shin Megami Tensei’s latest spin-off, Persona 5 Royal, which has sold more than 1.8 million copies worldwide, according to an Gematsu’s story from last June.
Shin Megami Tensei V tells the story of a modern-day student in Tokyo who is transported to an alternate apocalyptic reality and finds himself caught up in a war between angels and demons. Read our review if you want to learn more about SMT V and see if it is your cup of tea.
