I'd probably attribute a lot of it's growth to P4:Golden tbh. The vita release of Persona 4 really seemed to elevate the series in terms of how many people actually knew about it in the West. I'd never heard of Persona before it. Maybe that's just me.
But it somehow sold more on the Vita than the PS2 so I guess that shows that the franchise was definitely growing with that entry.
That too, yeah. May be a bit surprising due to Vita's small install base. Though on the other hand I guess the smaller library compared to PS2 also made for less competition, so P4 stood out more.
But going from (according to VGC) 1.25 to 3.2 is a huge leap still.
I'd like to see a breakdown of the official sales figures for the Persona series from Atlus though.Last edited by Hiku - on 03 December 2019
