UPDATE: Shin Megami Tensei Franchise Sells Over 19 Million Units Worldwide

Sega Sammy’s latest business overview report has revealed that the Shin Megami Tensei franchise has sold 19 million units worldwide, which is roughly 1.3 million more units compared to the previous year’s report. However, it is worth noting that Sega counts downloads for the mobile title Shin Megami Tensei: Liberation Dx2 as part of these units.

Still, Shin Megami Tensei V and Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne HD Remaster have been seeing great success and are certainly significant factors for this increase in sales.

Congratulations to Atlus, and here’s hoping news on a new entry, or port arises sooner rather than later.

UPDATE: Atlus has shared a new logo to commemorate the Shin Megami Tensei franchise’s 30-year anniversary.

Shin Megami Tensei V takes place after a murder occurs in modern-day Tokyo that blocks the game’s protagonist from walking home. The detour may have been due to fate or another force, but he finds himself buried and unconscious.

When he awakens, he finds himself in a new Tokyo, a wasteland after the apocalypse known as Da’at’. He quickly finds out that he’s’ not alone, as demons are closing in on his location. However, a mighty being known as a Nahobino appears and saves him. With this new strength, the protagonist can venture through Da’at’ and hopefully get some answers about what happened to his former home.

Shin Megami Tensei V is now available for Nintendo Switch.
