    It would have sold more if it wasn’t 2x the price it should have been at launch. Either way, I want both versions bad. I hope they update us on the PS3 one soon.

      Why was it 2x the price?Because of the book?

    • Aoshi00

      Most places did drop the price in half though soon after it came out when the copies weren’t moving… In actuality, the Ni no Kuni MSRP wasn’t that much more expensive than a regular DS game in Jpn (6800 yen vs 5000-6000 yen, right now it’s 3369 yen on Amazon Jpn, cheaper than a regular DS game even w/ the huge book). I wish I had just waited a little bit instead of paying full price pre-ordering. the book was well made but still.. I did like my Ni no Kuni stylus..

      I’m not a big fan of Level 5/Ghibli’s practice of using non-seiyuu, but I’m looking forward to getting the movie The Borrower Arrietty on blu-ray because of Shida Mirai, she’s pretty cute and I liked her past dramas :)

    Good, I cant wait to see how the Inuzama Eleven takes advantage of that which is offered by the powerful 3DS!

    I’m still proud of how Ni no Kuni did and it’s stubborness in staying in the charts. And heh Level 5 can take what they learned and apply it in future so it’s win-win. Now how about bringing it over here WITH the big book intact instead of being made compact for westnerized reasons :D

    Nothing wrong with 500,000 units. Hope it still does well. Would love to see it come to the west.

    Hope the PS3 version does better for them. Maybe the book held the DS version back a little.

    Are we getting it? I would like the PS3 version though..

    It’s about time SOMEONE in Japan learned that you don’t release a niche game close to a very popular game.

      I don’t think Level 5 is a niche name at all. They’re a very well-recognized developer in Japan now, and Ni no Kuni had both them and Studio Ghibli attached to it. The problem wasn’t that Ni no Kuni is niche…just that Monster Hunter is huge. :p

    Are these good enough numbers to warrant an international release?

      I do not think numbers in JPN necessarily translate into deciding upon arrival overseas.
