Games in the Persona series, a spin-off of Shin Megami Tensei, are not included in these figures.
Digital sales of Shin Megami Tensei V are also not included, as NPD figures never include digital sales of Nintendo games.
Shin Megami Tensei V launched on November 12th, 2021 exclusively for Nintendo Switch — four years (and a lot of silence) after its initial announcement.
The game was critically well-received, including by Nintendo Wire. We liked it so much, we gave it a 9/10 in our review.
If you’re interested in playing the record-setting latest installment in the Shin Megami Tensei series, you can purchase it now both physically and from the Nintendo eShop.Leave a Comment
