Persona 5 has been a stunning success for Atlus since it’s launch on September 15th just a couple of weeks ago. The company announced at the end of this week that over 550,000 copies of the game have been shipped between PS3 and PS4 editions in Japan.
Let’s put that in perspective for Atlus. Persona 4: The Golden, the PS Vita re-release of the last mainline Persona game, had reached 350,000 units in Japan only after almost 2 years of being available. Clearly, Persona 5 is going to be a monster hit for the company and seriously fill parent company Sega’s coffers this year.
To celebrate this achievement, Atlus has announced it will be releasing two free sets of DLC costumes for players. Hit the jump to see pictures of the cast in their swimsuits and Morgana dolled up like a ram.
The first batch of DLC will be swimsuit outfits for the main cast to wear. While you see these outfits during the regular course of the game and in promotional trailers, these swimsuits will be wearable even in dungeons with the package. The swimsuit DLC will be available on October 5th and be free apparently indefinitely.
The second set will feature costumes inspired by Atlus’ game Catherine. However, this set of outfits will only be free from October 5th until October 10th. Afterwards, it will cost lamb loving gamers 800 yen.
Atlus and Sega have been pretty good about bringing most DLC content westward in recent years, so it’s hard not to imagine these sets won’t see the light of day when Persona 5 releases in the west on February 14th, 2017.
