Shin Megami Tensei V set a new launch month sales record for the franchise during November, according to a United States NPD sales report.

The game was also a top-selling game for the month, ranking No. 16 overall and No. 6 on Nintendo platforms.


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.
