Ni No Kuni DS Gets 600,000 Orders In Japan

It’s always a worrying time when a new IP with stacks of potential hits the market, especially as most have underperformed this year.  So it’s with a massive smile that we bring you the news that the DS version of Ni No Kuni has an initial order amount in Japan of 600,000 copies.  Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino had the following to say:


“We consider Ni no Kuni to be Level-5’s next big title to follow Professor Layton and Inazuma Eleven.”

We are monumentally jealous of our Japanese friends right now, and can’t wait until both the DS and PS3 versions hit our shores next year.

  1. I’m itching to get my hands on this one. The ps3 version that is..

  2. This looks rubbish! Only joking, it’s almost up there with The Last Guardian for me. I’ve just watched the PS3 trailer again, twice. Could be excellent DS bog fodder as well. Ah, the Ring of Solitude.

  3. Yakuza 4, To the end,White Knight Chronicles 2. Monster Hunter P3rd, Ni No Kuni….. damn the list goes on!!

  4. I’m glad to hear it’s selling well, it surely deserves nothing less. Really looking forward to getting my hands on the PS3 version, will be amazing.
