The game may be a bit overrated but I still think it's great.

This is fantastic news.

None, But it is just another Ni No Kuni topic in a place where people don't care about it


"people dont care"

I like when people say things like this. Blindly speaking on everyone's behalf lol.

I'd like to see the sales figures. With as much praise as its getting, it better not be below 500,000.



It will probably sell around 500-600 thousand copies combined in all Regions, which of course means amazing sales (especially if you also add the 100-200 thousand japanese copies).

Add the DS sales too in japan, and Project Ni No Kuni is a massive success that easily warrants a sequel / turning into a franchise! :)

A perspective to understand what this means.
Xenoblade only managed #5.

Ni No Kuni managed something only FINAL FANTASY games do. Regardless of sales numbers.


The point, is that achieving such a feat in the current state of gaming in the UK is nothing to write home about, because it wouldn't have happened 6 years ago.

No other Console RPG ever achieved it outside FINAL FANTASY.
It's sold out everywhere.

"Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch (Standard Edition) stock in short supply, but more available very soon!"

It was also topping #1 in Amazon for the past weeks.
It is everything to write home about.
And had it come out 6 years ago on PS2, it would have sold tons more with a 150 million install base + 6 years of selling legs, and gaming community being way warmer towards Console RPGs than today.

LEVEL 5 (with two DRAGON QUEST installments worth of experience) + Studio Ghibli + Joe Hisaishi = Hype.
Add the GENIUS Wizard's Companion and the Console Pokemon experience that never was to the mix, and yeah 'nuff said.
