One of the RPG highlights on the Switch, and in general last year, was Shin Megami Tensei V by Atlus. It arrived on Nintendo's system during the action-packed month of November and was praised as a "modern masterpiece" in our very own review here on Nintendo Life.

It seems the game has got off to a strong start in terms of sales - with Atlus revealing the game has already sold over 800k copies worldwide and thanking fans for their support.

"Happy New Year! In November 2021, Shin Megami Tensei V was simultaneously worldwide, and it got off to a good start, selling over 800k copies in total. Thank you very much for your support."

According to the most recent Sega Sammy Management Meeting 2021, which took place on 14th December, parent company Sega is very satisfied with the global sales of SMT V so far. In contrast, it took Shin Megami Tensei IV two years to achieve just 600k sales (thanks, Persona Central).
