@Lamace

Xenoblade Chronicles wasn't a flop. Nintendo had no idea what they were doing with that game, and it cost them over 1 million sales. In 2011, Xenoblade Chronicles was one of the most pirated games, and had 1 million illegal downloads. By the time it came to the states, most of the people who wanted to play it already did. Nintendo was really dumb with that release.

I still need to get Ni no Kuni, just have to convince the wife to let me get it.

Fantastic sales for a Jrpg (that isnt Final Fantasy) and still selling. Aside from a good word of mouth i imagine being deemed Greatest Hits also helped it sales a good amount. Cant wait to see these sales in a year or 2.

I think those are pretty nice sales for NA & EU. About as much as you can expect from a HD JRPG these days (similar to what Tales games sell).

If it had come the same time as the DS version in Japan, it would be creeping up to a million by now.

@binary solo - I doubt the Ghibli name helped it that much, it was probably more so the demo. Just look at the sales in Japan and Ghibli is 50 times as big over there.

I wonder if this exact same game would have sold as well without the Ghibli name attached? Of course arguably no one could have made this exact same game without Ghibli, but we are talking hypothetically here.

No ni Kuni doesn't look like an typical (modern) "Animé" J-RGP... (and doesn't have a any chick on the cover) ...

but even Xenoblade didn't reach 200K in Japan..

but I heard that No ni Kuni is selling good in the US and GB...., might take of thanx to the US & EU (like Xeno did...)

hibli and Level 5 just have to make another game... Ni no Kuni just has to sell good enough!.., this is one of the best J-RPGs on this gen, period.

(after this game, hope Nintendo will consider making Zelda U also with Cel Shading)
