Wow.
Well done Level 5!
There's clearly a lot of people that want the old school JRPG back.
Loving this game so far takes me back to a time when JRPGs were at their best.

You do know that Sweden is bigger than the UK, right? I guess when people announce games selling well in the UK, we should say, UK?

Get an Atlas or Google earth buddy. Sweden is one of he most technically advanced countries around.

Many innovations come from Sweden.

Happy that here in Sweden, gaming is huge. One of the proudest things of being from here.

Square Enix minion: Sir, old school JRPG's are selling very well. Ni No Kuni just broke the record.

Yoichi Wada: Impossible, because the fortune teller Pao told me that old school JRPG's had no future !!!

**Pao is the fortune teller who told Yoichi Wada to move the companies headquarters because it will bring good luck...and the idiot did just that, look it up**

This is a great example on how reviews and good word of mouth help it achieve the recognition it deserves. I for one decided to buy it because everyone was saying it was so good. Same thing happened when I decided to purchase Journey last yr.

Not surprised, being from Sweden myself, the game is sold out at some places like Webhallen and such. But that's great news!

Awesome or Härligt as you say in Swedish :)

I keep going into my local gamestop and it says sold out I checked around to none of them have it in. (¬_¬")

EDIT: I just learned the lesson of pre-ordering.......

When I popped into GAME last Friday to pick up a standard edition, I was horrified to find it had sold out. I was just stood in the shop like "Really, a JRPG has completely sold out?" so when I wandered over to another shop they told there was little to no chance of finding one in Town. So I had to order it online where I only just managed to get a copy because most websites it was back-ordered.

Thankfully I have it now and after playing it for some time, I can say the success is completely deserved. If you haven't already, find a copy and play it, it's simply wonderful. Forget nihilistic shooty games, this is pure childhood innocence condensed into a game.
