Great news! It even beats FIFA 13 and Black Ops.

Good sales will guarantee sequel on PS4, I got my copy day one, even though I have no time to play it and I dont want to play and hour a day.

NewMonday1303d ago

never expected it to get in any top 10 list at all, this is a good sign to publishers that if they put heart in a game gamers will answer.

It makes me really happy to see people giving this the recognition it deserves. As for me, I'm going back to play some platoon, which I find is disturbingly addictive...I've been in the casino for 2 hours now.

help me.

Very good news. Beating Fifa is quite an accomplishment. Let's hope this chart mirrors the rest of Europe and (fingers crossed) America. I'd say a sequel is guaranteed.

@ GribbleGrunger

Of course it beat FIFA. Fifa released in September and has pretty much sold to the Fifa market.

Ni No Kuni just came out. Naturally a new game will outsell a popular game released 6 months ago in a single territory market.

Would have liked to have seen the number of units sold. That would have given a better idea.

Outside_ofthe_Box1303d ago

lol I bet Lvl_up is hoping the numbers are low. So that way he can make another sly remark at how Level 5 has fallen from greatness.

With that said it's great to hear that Ni no Kuni actually managed to top the charts in the UK.

:(

It's sold out in Ireland so I have to wait. Cannot believe I needed to preorder a Jrpg in this day and age

LightofDarkness1303d ago

VERY glad I pre-ordered. I had a feeling this would happen, so I plopped down the full price about 3 weeks ago. The guy in Galway said they really weren't expecting the demand at all.

Great news, bet microsoft are kicking themselves now they almost got level 5 as a exclusive dev once with true fantasy online but stupidly cancelled it and level 5 went back to make games for the PS2/3 and DS.

Acquiescence1303d ago

so highly in demand again. A masterpiece of a JRPG at that.

Rampaged Death1303d ago

Grats to Namco. Definitely going to play this before the year has ended. Lets hope the PS4 is backwards compatible !

g-nome1303d ago (Edited 1303d ago )

Not likely , it will make the new console too expensive. The ps3 12 gig consoles will become cheaper though , if you don't have one yet.

izumo_lee1303d ago

Congrats! Well deserved. Hopefully it will be number 1 for more than a week but even so it is a big accomplishment for a JRPG not named Final Fantasy.

cleft51303d ago

Awesome news, they really needed this to be successful in the West and it looks like their gamble paid off well. Hopefully, this shows Japanese developers that Westerners are hungry for good JRPGs.
