Yup, the ps3 version is  a port. The DS version came out in 2010 i think.

Sad that JRPGs nowadays try hard to reach one million, but good to see the support is still there.

Ni No Kuni is the exception, but recent JRPGs aren't that good anymore.  Although unfair, Final Fantasy 13 tainted and turned people off from the whole JPRG genre.  

Not at all. The reason why Final Fantasy sell where other JRPGs don't is because it actually has a decent production budget. Most JRPGS look cheap (even if they have solid gameplay). Also the generic anime style many of them adopt is not very appealing to people in the west.

I wonder if a 3DS version would make financial sense...
They could throw the translated book as a digital version on the card and make it accesible through the game itself (like the Ps3 version did it)
...I don´t think a port would be very expensive !
I would buy it !

I'm actually shocked at those "rest of the world" numbers for the PS3 version. In this day and age, a HD console JRPG that isn't Final Fantasy selling those kind of figures in US/EU is a major success.

Props to it. Still haven't gotten around to picking it up, but I intend to at some point.

Nearly all JRPGs are successful before hitting 1 million, that's not a universal benchmark. 1 mil would be a big success. These overseas sales for NNK are great.

So I assume 500k is a success?

Dat ghost. But good sales for a good game.


Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

Wow I had no idea it would flop that hard.

Actually those are pretty good sales.
