According to Nintendo, this has sold at least 4.13m as of April 2011. Probably more since then.

I loved the Bowser sections of the game. Probably my favourite RPG outside of Pokemon.

Dang it. I forgot all about this game. I still need Professor Layton 2, PL 3, this game, this game's prequel, Golden Sun, NSMB DS, and the new FE(if it gets localized). Needless to say, I will not be able to get a 3ds anytime soon.

This week in the DS only chart for the UK Bowser's Inside Story was at #3 which is the best its done since it was launched. I've also started to notice TV ads here which i didn't see back when the game was first released. Anyhow it seems sales are really picking up at least here in the UK.

st_muscat0 posted 14/12/2009, 06:35
I think its doing bad in Others for two reasons. 1st no advertisement what so ever. 2nd not sure if this is the case but maybe it was only translated into English and not any other language? That killed Chrono Trigger DS' sales and Valkyria Chronicles sales in Others as well so maybe that's the case here too.

Just finished it. Sooo much better than partners in time. Lots of fresh ideas and funny twists. Ridiculously easy though, all enemies are complete pushovers, you hardly ever need an item! I finished with a GIGATON of mushrooms, syrups, candies and retry clocks left.
