I wonder what it cost them to make the game. It made back 17M in that week.

I would estimate they made about half of that amount after distribution fees/retailer fees. But I can’t imagine the budget for this game was extraordinary, I’m sure it will make plenty of money given the PS4 install base.

Ni No Kiddy 2. It’s a game for babies.

@mikeslemonade i will agree ...the game is far too simple and handholding, to the point that of boredome and annoyance

If you fight the level 80+ bounty monsters, I bet you'd cry like a baby at least once or twice. :D

Not for the developers and publishers it didn't. That would require retail outlets to sell at cost $60/ piece.

Very possible they made out well with digital sales though.

Jinger149d ago

You know they don't get the entire $60 back, right?

JRPGs are becoming very successful. This is only good news. Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Persona 5, Nier and now this. Keep buying it people. This game deserves to be a hit

porkChop149d ago

Yeah we've been getting some really great JRPGs recently. I'm glad they're selling well.

michellelynn0976149d ago

Me too. It will show devs and publishers that we want these games and they will pour more resources into making them.

I still have to pick this up

Discobastrd149d ago

Did you play the first one? It's no way near as good. I was disappointed unfortunately. The first was incredible and the high scores this got baffle me. Real shame. 7/10 at best for me

TomatoDragon149d ago

Crap, I’m falling so far behind. I’m still working though Persona 5 and Ys VIII. Still haven’t gotten this, god of War, Detroit is almost here, Galgun 2 already released. More hours in the day I need!

showtimefolks149d ago

I haven't started Ys yet is a time sink? Any tips or tricks

TomatoDragon149d ago

Actually doesn’t seem like an incredibly long game. Perhaps 40 hours. The combat is fun as hell so time passes quite quickly.

And here I am going back to Crackdown for some reason. I do feel a bit guilty that I haven't completed some of the great games from the last two years, but I just don't feel 'up to it' right now :(
