Not even DmC's launch was able to take BO2 off #1 on Amazon, but Ni No Kuni pre-orders have done just that days before release. Love the attention it's getting

It seems like this game would be in danger of bombing hard... glad its not but I don't understand how they've done it with so little marketing 0_0

This board gave it more attention than all the marketing combined.

Word of mouth, the reviews it's been getting, they have been promoting it on Facebook and the like, and I've seen articles on it.

Moreso than they did for Tales of Graces f, which is their own RPG series.

Where on Amazon does it say that list is sorted by sales numbers? It says it is sorted by "new and popular."
#8toadiemanPosted 1/18/2013 9:10:45 AM
I don't think there is an order to that list. It's just a list.

If there's one thing Ni No Kuni proves, it's that Playstation 3 owners are starved for a good JRPG.

PS3 only owners, sure.
Good thing I have other systems, in particular DS/3DS, and the Wii which has XBC/TLS and soon to be PT.
