The game was OK but I expected better. For me i couldn't connect to the characters and didn't care if any of them died or not. I really didn't like Evan either. The kingdom building was the best part of the game for me.

This, this this! Anyone who has played the original will probably be slightly disappointed with the sequel, and it's lack of animated cutscenes. It just didn't have the same charm as the original.

the best jrpg 2018, now. Dragon Quest 11 and Kingdom hearts 3 are coming too this year for PS4, very exciting!

I think it no longer being branded as a Ghibli project in addition to the gameplay changes cost it sales. I personally loved it however.

I don't think the gameplay changes had an important impact, considering a lot of people did not like the combat in the first game.

How does it compare to the original's launch?

66.8K Japan (http://www.vgchartz.com/weekly/40867/Japan/), 101.4K US (http://www.vgchartz.com/weekly/41301/USA/), 106.6K Europe (http://www.vgchartz.com/weekly/41308/Europe/)

So a decrease in sales, but no big one, around 10-15%.
