More than 2 million copies of Persona 5 have been sold worldwide, according to an announcement by Atlus earlier today.

Persona 5, released on PS3 and PS4, has not just been able to reach such a milestone, it has also been nominated in four categories (Game of the Year, Best Art Direction, Best Score/Music, and Best RPG) for The Game Awards that will take place on December 7 in Los Angeles.

“This has been an incredible year for our company, one that represents our ambitions for Japanese games in the west,” said Naoto Hiraoka, Atlus U.S.A. president & CEO. “We are in the middle of experiencing tremendous growth, both in the west and abroad, and the sales of Persona 5 represent a new level of expectation for fans of the genre. Once seen as niche, Persona 5 is one of the most important titles this year, proving interest in this category is expanding. We look forward to delivering more incredible games to our fans next year.”
