Persona 5, the latest entry in the extremely popular series of JRPG video games, has shipped over 1.5 million copies worldwide since the game first released in Japan back in September, as noted in an article from Eurogamer.

As the article points out, the game was released in Europe and North America last week and has received a strong critical reception which has likely driven sales in these markets.

Persona 5 had already sold an impressive 550,000 copies of the game in Japan a month after its release and is the fastest-selling game of the series so far.
