Just like when FFVII sold like hotcakes and then every company started making great jrpgs for the ps1?

Ni No Kuni could be the winds of change to make Shooters begone from the PS3 and bring back Sony Playstation's pride and honor back.

Yeah I don't expect it to sell 200,000+ here, but it could happen.

Hell, Xenoblade outsold Japan and Europe in NA at over 300,000 where Japan sold about 160,000 copies and Europe 210,000, and that's so far one of my favorite JRPGs this gen.

NnK wasnt advertised well outside of Gaming magazines and on the PSN (Japanese comedian duo, American ZaniGani doing stand up as 2 characters from within the game, probably name changed).

That and the DS version sold 500,000+ in Japan, and it's still pretty much the same basic story, though the PS3 version is expanded on it, along with orchestral tracks and a different battle system.

for a high profile game like that, this is pretty lackluster numbers, it did not even break a million. then again, it is for the wii, i wonder how much it would've sold had it been made for the PS3 instead.
