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.
